I don't know why this link isn't working. This story is that we presold 3/4 of our 40 homes by closing, which really did help us get our construction financing. With any luck, we'll sell a couple more before the end of the year and easily sell the rest before move in next summer. See to see pics of our construction in progress.

We've had really good success in talking to potential members in an info session followed by a community potluck. And good fortune that we can use the nearby Village Cohousing to hold this event on every other Saturday. Don't mix business meetings and these events
is our advise to all!

The "Cohousing in the News" section on the web site lists a recent article, from */The Capital Times/* (Madison, WI) with this headline: “Cohousing project defies otherwise cool market” <http://> "Construction has begun on one of the most ambitious cohousing projects in the United States. which combines the efforts of a local nonprofit group, St. Mary's Hospital, and Habitat for Humanity. (September 25, 2007)" Unfortunately, the link doesn't work. But you could probably find it if you went to the Capital Times web site.
