Tom, I don't think scarcity of land is the cause of the minimum price
of home ownership.  Everyone who "owns" a house in suburbia already
has the land in their front or back yard on which to erect a cottage
for granny, foreclosed-upon adult children, or renters -- the land
cost for this building is zero -- but zoning doesn't let them.
Likewise, forming cohos can afford the lots, they just can't get
planning permission to erect the density they want, or the building
construction method, or the small unit size, etc.

                                                        Brian
