Re: Two homes for sale at Westwood Cohousing in Asheville, North Carolina -- update about links.

These are a couple of the least expensive cohousing units I have seen
and they look very nice. My question is, is there anywhere in the US
where cohousing is actually affordable for the unwashed masses? Is
there any cohousing available for people who cannot afford $300K plus
homes? I love the concept, but it certainly seems like a pretty
elitist thing. I am not trying to be difficult, I would love to live
in a cohousing situation, but, as Wonder Warthog once said, "not at
these Uranus prices."
