Hi Sharon! Thanks for the reference to Mid Atlantic Cohousing’s handbook! Handbook and DVD for one low price of $25.00 including S&H. You can see a trailer for the DVD here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYD2sv8LmOE MAC has about 10 sets in stock at this time. Also comes w/ a set of Ginzu knives and Bamboo steamer. Just kidding. Peter — you wrote in re: working w/ a developer: >> and we're far from decided on what >> developer we’ll work with. From experience: don’t wait too long to do this. The sooner you start working w/ a professional the faster your community will be built w/ far fewer problems. You will save money. It’s never too soon to start. You have some great choices right in the New England area.
