Autonomy/independence translates into the American Dream of transcending shared and rental housing, and owning a detached home on its own "little acre". No one witnesses or gets in your private business. You're finally

Co-housing, I believe, rises out of the European definition, holding the perspective that investing in quality relationships, collective ownership,
and cooperation, creates the support for real freedom.

The single family home is very English and resulted there in the blocks and blocks of "terraces" or identical town houses in London.

Apparently the rest of Europe is not so attached to single family homes.
