Hey all

There are a ton of great pre-fab homes on the market today.  Two firms
that I have recently had the opportunity to interact with are Resolution
4 Architecture and Rocio Romero.  Both design firms have explored the
notions of creating beautiful functional spaces that can be modular,
durable, and unique.  Romero's designs are really affordable.  

Cohousing could definitely use a modern, affordable facelift into

Hi all-
Not trailers please - I work in disaster recovery - including dealing
the aftermath of the hurricanes in Florida and all along the East Coast
year.  No plain trailers.  
How about single or double-wide manufactured housing on a permanent  
foundation with the wheels removed and with HUD-standard roof tie-downs?
housing can be affordable but a far better investment and more
than trailers. Not to mention easier to get financing and  permits for.
I think 
you could use an extra doublewide for a common house.   Might even be
able to 
get a grant from FEMA mitigation funds for a safe room for  a disaster 
shelter that could also be used for other community functions.
