Hello!Since you're on the West Coast, I'm assuming you and your friends are attending the upcoming conference in Seattle, WA. That is the place where you will find many of the answers to the questions you have about moving forward from dream to reality. From people who have done it. And you can TALK to them. And it's coming up in less than 4 weeks. Timing for you (and everyone else considering building cohousing) couldn't be better!
Just in case there's someone out there who hasn't read all the good things happening at the upcoming CohoUS conference:

A circle of friends has had a couple of meetings to discuss forming an ecovillage-type cohousing project in Northern California.We are looking for advice from some of you veterans in getting from theplace of ideas and moving towards the moving-in stage. We all have individual pictures of our dream, but haven't yet merged that into agroup vision. Forming a group vision will certainly be something we takeon soon. As we face that task, we already have questions about forming that vision as a smaller group, then inviting others to join the groupmid-process, which will inevitably change the vision. Also, what aspects of the project are we best off addressing now, vs. leaving until later?Can you recommend any resources dealing specifically with startup: cohousing books? websites? consultants in N. CA? other resources?conferences? Sadly, we missed the recent meeting with Chuck in Berkeley;I'm sure that would have been insightful. We are located in the Davis/Sacramento, Berkeley/Oakland/SF, and Santa Cruz areas, so any startup consulting services in these areas would be appropriate. What should we do before meeting with a consultant? Thanks ahead of time for your *solicited* advice - River Seanain Davis, CA _________________________________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list -- Unsubscribe, archives and other info at: http://www.cohousing.org/cohousing-L/
