Both Great Oak and Touchstone cohousing in Ann Arbor, Michigan are 
factory-built housing.  Great Oak used Royal Homes out of Ontario, Canada and 
Touchstone used a Midwest supplier (can't remember the name; maybe someone from 
Touchstone will weigh in).
 
You can check out what a "factory-built" cohousing community looks like here:
 
www.gocoho.org (where we currently have two 3-BR units for sale)
www.touchstone.org (where there are currently units for sale, but I don't know 
for how much or what type)
 
There should plenty of detail in the archives about this, because there was a 
long discussion about the benefits of prefab / factory-built housing on this 
listserve about six months ago.  Factory-built can save you a lot of money but 
learn a lesson from us and keep customization to a minimum.
