Sense of community by having individual space combined with shared coordinated space is the most important thing about cohousing. Ownership, design, etc. are all very important too. but for those groups who don't have $, cohousing can still happen. Unless you can get the city to give you a building or have some other great luck, rent! It's taken me forever to accept this. Obviously this is a step by step process, once the cohousing culture is formed you can construct plans to buy, pool $, etc. But the solidarity and the culture can come first. $ should not stand in the way of that nor does it have to. Most low income people are paying rent anyway unless they're homeless... that's another subject. So for those group out there like mine who lack money to get the ball rolling, we can learn from the models out there who do have $, and we can also get started as we put the $ issue as secondary.
