My associate has agreed to make our schematics available after he has removed 
the dimensions.  He has a very busy schedule, but we hope to post them in about 
one month.  I hope that this is useful to anyone seeking to experience this 
mini-cohousing experience.  If you have any interest in having one built for 
you and your friends here on the Suncoast, please give me a call.

    If the units are designed as bedroom/bathroom/sitting-room suites 
  sharing a common kitchen and living rooms, can one then have a 
  mixed-gender shared cohousing unit?  After all, elderly men have much the 
  same community needs themselves.

  I'm helping to develop elder cohousing in Venice, FL.  I'm also an advocate
  of Shared Housing and have designed two, barrier free models for this
  purpose.  One model is a 1200 ft2, 2BR, 2BA, split design cottage (2 master
  BR suites).  The other model is a much larger, 4BR, 4.5BA mini estate ( 4
  master BR suites).  I'm living in and sharing the smaller model, but I
  haven't had the opportunity to build the larger model.  I always thought
  that the 4 master BR suite (based on a B&B design) would be best utilized by
  three owners who would have the 4th suite available for guests, renters, or
  caregivers.  If you've got the people; I've got the design.
