How much would you pay to have community?

Cohousing has certain ideas you must have in order to own the name cohousing (at least to some of the founders who want to keep it pure).  One is that there has to be a common house.  I found a post here at a similar type of community called a Pocket Neighborhood where they argue a common house does not a community make.

I like the idea of forming communities in many ways. There are cohousing communities that retrofit a building or a condo or an HOA neighborhood. There are people who link their backyards. There are many ways to form relationships and bump into neighbors.

About CJ

I was a Spanish teacher for 5 years in the Public School system in 3 different states. I homeschooled and taught at a democratic free school. I heard about cohousing in 2010 and wanted to move in right away. I met a group building one in 2018 and got to move in the summer of 2019. It only took a year to want out.
