New Brighton Cohousing, where I live,  bought an existing site with
11 townhomes and a single family home rather that build from the
ground.  We did not hire an ongoing consultant, but our core group
went to a lot of cohousing workshops and we did hire Katie McCamant
for a few hours here and there.  Even in our case, I think we would
have saved ourselves years had we ponied up for a consultant earlier
in the process.  I can't imagine going through the building process
without having a cohousing consultant on board.  It is too easy to
run in circles or making very costly mistakes on your own.
