Show synopsis The Cohousing Handbook, a groundbreaking and practical guide to creating cohousing, is a must-have for the growing number of people who want to build a cohousing community. Cohousing offers an end to the isolation of the single-family suburban home. Balancing community and personal privacy, cohousing is a chance to create a modern village in an urban or rural setting. Residents own their own homes and can gather in common areas to share meals and socialize. An increasingly popular form of housing in both Europe and North America, cohousing addresses and alleviates many of the demands and pressures of modern life - everything from daycare to aging at home is easier with the help of your neighbors. The Cohousing Handbook is a guide, a manual, and a source of comfort and inspiration for those who want to create their ideal community. Cohousing is our opportunity to build a better society, one neighborhood at a time.
