Bruce, there's a lot of interest in modular homes and building components as one approach to increased the number of affordable cohousing homes. I expect new information on new candidate suppliers would be of interest. There are also a handful of existing communities that have already "gone modular" - perhaps some of the folks from them can share here (again). Here are a few threads from the archives http://lists.cohousing.org/archives/cohousing-l/msg21831.html http://lists.cohousing.org/pipermail/cohousing-l/msg21832.html http://lists.cohousing.org/pipermail/cohousing-l/msg24574.html On Jan 14, 2008 12:01 PM, Bruce Shimizu <bruce [at] cw-homes.com> wrote: > > I'm off to Idaho tomorrow to look at modular homes for an affordable > housing > community in Cloverdale, CA.
