I believe Alameda Commons, in Santa Fe, took that approach.

Subject: [C-L]_ Non-developer building?

Hello all,

I'm a part of a [very] new group in Maryland, and we were wondering if there 
were any cohousing communities where individual member households were 
responsible for the construction of their own homes, vs using a standard 
developer, construction company, and set of house plans?

At the current time (this may change, of course) due to wide differences in our 
desires for types and styles of houses (and definitely no one wanting to tell 
someone else how their house can and can't be), we would like for each 
household to be able to build what they want. 
Besides possibly higher costs, are there any inherent problems with this? 

Thanks in advance,
