We ended up buying a pre-existing complex, but had talked to our local Habitat when we were looking at different properties. We had a concern that the people in the market units would be subsidizing both the land and the common house for the people in the Habitat units, and that that would price out many of our households. We talked to the Habitat group about the possibility of a Habitat crew leader working with us to build the common house, with all members either providing labor or hiring labor. This would bring the cost of the common house down for all, provide a bonding experience for those willing and able to work on it. They were amenable to the idea, although we never got the chance to put it into practice. Randa Johnson New Brighton Cohousing Aptos, CA
