Sad but true, the rural cohousing group that we were part of in SW Wisconsin has decided to disband, sell our property, and wish it had turned out differently. We never had more than five member households. Despite the interest of a couple more prospective members, we grew tired of hoping for seven more (we've been at this for six years) and were not able to finance the development of lots on our own. Despite careful attention to the good advice in Diana Leafe Christian's book, Creating a Life Together, the market does not seem ready for cohousing here. Our twelve acres with an existing house will be for sale very soon, about $215,000, though one member family is negotiating to buy two acres and build their new home because the location is wonderful. That would leave ten acres and a house, at a lower price. This has been the most disappointing experience I've had since the loss of my first love at 15. Thank you to all of the helpful members of this list who have answered so many questions and shared so many informed opinions over the years. Onward and upward...
