Congratulations, Dean.  What an opening for your cohousing project.  We see 
more municipalities making density and zoning changes allowing more multifamily 

Regarding your “cottage” designs …don’t know if you are asking for references 
or not.  Let me just say there are literally thousands of designs and 
blueprints out there on the web if you are looking for off-the-shelf designs.  
Can save a lot of money!

Perusing your website I see you already have a garden plus apple trees and a 
meadow. A bucolic site.

Looking forward to hearing more as your community progresses.

Congratulations again!
