Cohousing?

I'm working on my final project for the technical writing course, which is a comparison of cohousing developments to single-family and more traditional multi-family housing. I'm finding it difficult to find any of the books I want to use as references in the library (school or two counties). Do any of you who are local happen to have books on the subject? Copies of Communities magazine, maybe? I'd appreciate a chance to look at such things rather than needing to buy them via Amazon!

Sor­ry about that. For inter­views with cohousers on key top­ics, watch the doc­u­men­tary “Voic­es of Cohous­ing. Rebuild­ing vil­lages in the city”, award win­ner at the 34th Eko­top­film fes­ti­val 2007 and nom­i­nat­ed at 9th Gold Pan­da Awards. Eas­i­ly acces­si­ble online http://​not​socrazy​.net. Enjoy!

You could try using Inter­Loan through your library. That’s where you can order books in from oth­er libraries if your own one doesn’t have it. School libraries don’t usu­al­ly charge for this service.

Hope this helps 🙂

Much of the infor­ma­tion on Cohous­ing is on the Inter­net. The very nov­el­ty of cohous­ing in most parts of the coun­try ensure loads of blogs and newsgroups. 

Cre­ate an Alert using google or yahoo with the term cohous­ing – you’ll get loads of use­ful links and can fol­low up on the ones you like. 

Good luck.

I’d be very, very inter­est­ed in see­ing your final paper. Can you send me a copy?

Def­i­nite­ly inter­est­ed in your paper as well. Any chance you’ll make it available?

Yes, I prob­a­bly will 🙂
