There are distinct advantages to working with knowledgeable professionals such as McCamant and Durrett. If you have the money to do so, it will save you a lot of time. That said, if you have more time than money, RoseWind Cohousing in Port Townsend WA is proof that it is possible to do a lot yourselves, if you have the time, energy, and some of the skills. Especially now that there are so many built communities, from whom one can learn much, and written and on-line guidance. Our first few families found the land and arranged for its purchase over time. Back in 1989 we had few other communities to consult, but did learn much from Winslow Cohousing. We laid out our land and went through all the steps in a Planned Unit Development Proposal, required to re-plat the land into our site plan. Four years later, with an additional handful of members on board, we had the PUD approved, having learned more about city planning than we ever thought we'd need to know. Over time, new buy-ins provided the money for installing the infrastructure, and then for building the common house. We designed the common house ourselves, and contracted building it, with lots of volunteer work in the mix. We still have many of our original members, and feel we have a solid good thing going here!
