Re: Micro Living Units -- Affordable

have wanted for years now living situation w/ private suites and shared common 
areas.  Spent too much time in nursing homes w/ my parents I think but there is 
an attractiveness to such institutional buildings being converted.  Wide 
hallways, rooms doubled up to fit a single person/couple, and large kitchen 
area w/ multiple stoves/burners and many refrigerators.  Not the same as 
sharing food but for urban areas especially might be more plausible.  Motels in 
outlying areas provide similar situations.  I don't need a private bathroom nor 
a private kitchen.

let me know if anyone is interested in finding such a place.

bye, Alberta
