From the Inside Flap:

For the past sixty years, Americans have concentrated on building bigger houses farther apart from each other. It's been environmentally ruinous, and it's made us kind of lonely. Here's a good practical antidote! —Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth This book is great! Full of commonsense advice and great tips, relevant for people of any age seeking to take on a housemate.—Elizabeth Mills, OBE Hon. Director, Homeshare International, Oxford, England This book is incredibly helpful to anyone thinking of living with housemates. [It] makes clear what works. Pluhar has the experience to make her teaching points in a completely practical and gentle way. She has taken a topic, which has great relevance in our world where sharing will have to become more usual, and made it lucid and readable. Bravo on a job well done! —Jacqueline Olds, MD Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School Co-author of The Lonely American: Drifting Apart in the 21st Century I think this book will become a “must have‚” in the years ahead as people want to or are forced to find ways to conserve resources, space, and emotional energy! —Annette Leahy Maggitti Program Director, St. Ambrose Homesharing The time for shared housing has come. Those of us who work with women interested in building community through sharing housing resources are thrilled to see a book such as this to guide our work and also to make available to women such as those joining Golden Girl Homes. Annamarie has brought together wonderful stories and a terrific framework for building rental income while sharing lives. I highly recommend it to anyone looking at this option.—Connie Skillingstad, President, Golden Girl Homes, Inc.
