Rob, and all...

I have to agree with Rob.  It should make sense, the game of building a
shell and allowing the new owners to choose the components and finishes for
the interior.  But it only seems to really make sense when the sales price,
and mark-up are extremely high.

Since customizing is so desirable for most cohousing group members, I do
think this bears looking into further, to see if the "shell game" can be
played in a more affordable arena.

Anyone who has other ideas or contributions to the development of this idea
should let me know.  I will post results to this list.
