This is a huge, and IMO false generalization.  I care about "bricks and sticks",
and so do many cohousers.  In fact, anyone who cares about environmental
issues should.

Sonora Cohousing, Tucson (where I've lived for over two years,
and never had to turn on the heater, because the "bricks and sticks"
had been situated they way they should).
