Kevin Wolf and I will be doing a workshop at the May conference about
retrofit cohousing which has been discussed here many times over the
years. (NOTE: by "retrofit cohousing" we mean existing housing that is
evolving so residents relate like in cohousing - NOT reconstruction of
a building to form cohousing.)

In preparation I am trying to put together a list of retrofit cohousing
communities.  (Unforunately not all are listed in the directory or are
not listed as "retrofitting".  Below is my current list of existing
communities including some that resemble or incorporate some retrofit
cohousing.  Do you know of others?

(This list is from which also includes
communities I think are defunct and details including whether
they were listed in the directory at 5 points since 1997. It also has links
to info about communities not in directory.)
