As it is, I can't recommend that our 5000+ East Bay Cohousing > members, or others on this list, respond. Also thanks to Raines for popping in. An excellent response. The Co-Living people could learn a lot from studying cohousing and cohousing communities, but not with a survey. As Steve Jobs said, People don’t know what they want until they see it. I followed the links because I wanted to see how low-cost cohousing might learn from them. I couldn’t find out anything without signing up. And I don’t sign up unless I know what I’m signing up for. I got no further than Architectural Review pictures, and very few of them. No lived in spaces. No examples of “house rules” or anything. It’s an anonymous front. It would be interesting to see a cohousing take on the concept. A 4 bedroom designed for single residents with an owner who then rents the spaces. It might be good to talk about what the description of a renter in that situation might be like or be looking for. I have no doubt that there are takers but it requires the owner to take responsibility and to have the funds to buy the unit.
