Cohousing Tools are worksheetsand design & planning aids created by Design Coalition in the early '90's, in the course of working with newly-formed cohousing core groups in the south-central Wisconsin area. The groups have found them helpful.
In working with groups, our goal is to make the process of development as understandable and "transparent" as possible. We intend to continue to add to the "toolbox" as our projects progress. The Cohousing Tools below are PDF's and available for downloading.
Today there are many resources available to groups attempting to develop a project (The Cohousing Network is a great example). We are curious to hear if these tools are still useful. If you download any of these tools, please send us an email with your feedback. Let us know what's useful and what's not, and what improvements we can make. Also, please give us an idea of how far along you or your group is in the process.
