Thanks to you all from here on the West Coast of BC, Canada for the inspiration to carry on with trying to find affordable housing models that include the cohousing model. I think it is a winner. It is so hard to find a practicable way to accomplish it.

I'm so glad Ron is doing this. This structure with attached studios or
small cottages is allowed by zoning in many places.

The other places that small units might not be a liability is in
central cities. The banks might view them as resalable as pied a terre
units. Banks worry a lot about resales.
