Forming Cohousing  -- Economic Eco-Village

This plan will ask members to work at regular jobs for two years and save
most, if not all of their money. After two years, the members will buy land and materials for standard stick built efficient homes. Each member will own their house and control their own finances.
One weekend per month the members will work for food and utilities.
During the two years housing will be provided by a sponsor for the members and in return the sponsor will receive one land portion for the two year rental fee. During the two year period members will share a room with one other person. Each member will be asked to participate in on going classes for one or more construction skills. The details will be posted on a web site (underdevelopment) and will be known by all members in detail prior to being accepted into the program. Modifications to the details and control of the common land will be done by the group during the two year period and afterwards. Final location has not been decided. The houses will be build to standard building codes except to allow for clustering if wanted by the group. An extensive application for membership will be required. I am interested in comments on what I have put up here. A realize more detail is needed for in depth comments.

Thank You ... Dean
