I believe the limit of six is the standard across the country. You have to have a firewall every three units or have sprinklers. Rural towns don't want high rises or catastrophic fires. At Greensward Hamlet in Maine, we had planned to build five buildings of four units each but recently changed it to four buildings of five units to lower the cost. To modify zoning ordinances is a two-year process. Francoise http://www.greenswardhamlet.com
