> And how about retro-fit cohousing? Do local laws come into play there? In my opinion, evolving an existing condominium into a supper club and then fictive kinship as your now-friends need help is far more economical in dollar price and environmental impact; and it's ten years faster. There are plenty of buildings already. As much as I love love love the insights in _A Pattern Language: Towns, Buildings, Construction_, I still don't think the shape of the architecture is the largest factor of coho...because I still see fictive kinships in living shapes which the residents constantly chafe against. Instead, perhaps the "journey" and the preparation for the "journey" is how humans commit and adapt. That's what the coho development process is really doing. > I know little about it but it seems crucial to scaling the movement... As far as I can tell, coho-like arrangements where elders decide to help themselves are the only way boomers are going to afford assisted living. So it's going to happen everywhere for all retirees. Be nicer if people can be prepared for it. > and would love to see this covered as well I'd suggest a survey format: 'Here are ten possible arrangements for clustered housing. Type 1 is banned by this group of laws, type 2 by that group of laws...type 10 is permitted, but made twice as expensive by these sidewalks/streetlights laws, and several times more because it all must be built out to completion in 2 years.' Then, groups that want one of the alternatives know to present themselves for permitting as a trailer park or RV campground for snowbirds. Brian
