A caveat -- While most people planning their cohousing unit aren't thinking about resales, it does happen, and sometimes to the most dedicated members. Quite apart from the practical aspects of some potential buyers being scared off by oddities, it is Not Nice to subject some poor person who just wanted a little more community in their life, and bought the only house available, to the trials of funky plumbing or construction that a contractor called in for repairs or renovations can't make heads or tails of. This is something we've encountered with the one partially owner-built house in the community -- the new owner spent a winter showering at the common house before the third or fourth plumber she had hired finally straightened out the problems, and I know the repair bills have been a major stress to her financially. Building ordinances exist for good reason.
