For those that haven't seen it, i'll vouch for it. Grace leant our group her copy when we were doing our common house design and it was very informative and helpful. I'm getting it now just to have in my 'cohousing library'. And as a good reference for future projects (not necessarily just cohousing).

In 2006 I wrote a book (thesis document) that outlined the essentials in
designing a Cohousing Common House.

It is illustrated with almost 300 color photos of cohousing projects in

At the Cohousing Conference, a number of people expressed interest in
purchasing a copy so I've found a printer who can print it for a
reasonable cost.

I will sell them for $30 and if you want me to mail it to you, I will
charge you the shipping costs as well.

If you are interested I can send you a table of contents and a sample
