I studied psychology of interiors at uni and I was surprised that there is a lot we do that is subconscious when it comes to our living habits. I think the idea is great but it's certainly not problem (and friction) free. You can see the same sort of thing with monastics living together.
In the UK co-housing is not too difficult. The difficulty comes when someone wants to move out.
Everyone would have to on board 100% otherwise you might get someone who's in love with the idealism but ignores the realism and forgets that other people have their own way of living.
But why wait? Go for it
