Someone working for the Road Home consultant in Louisiana asked me  yesterday
if there is any interest among cohousing professional folk in  helping former
neighbors in New Orleans organize themselves into groups that can  work with
a single developer to get whole blocks rebuilt together.    These people are
all former homeowners who will be getting compensation payments  from the Road
Home program during the coming months. They may or may not be  interested in
cohousing per se. (See http://_www.louisianarebuilds.info_

I'm certainly not a cohousing professional, but I found the designs in "The Grow Home" to be quite compelling. 1500sq ft row houses, well built for around $50/sq ft. I think there are some very important lessons there.

It's not what I know that counts. It's what I can remember in time to use.
