My one suggestion on this idea is to option a block of homes back to back on two parallel streets, not in a culdesac where a street runs down the middle and the fire dept. will have conniption fits with anything that changes that street. Ideally have the streets run east west. Kevin Wolf N Street Cohousing where 5 houses on Lessley Place back up against 9 houses on N Street and the streets run north south.
