Proponents of homeowners' associations would have us believe that without the concept of an HOA, many Americans would be locked out of the American dream of home ownership.  But just how affordable is affordable housing?  And what happens when cash strapped homeowners in so called affordable developments are faced with having to make expensive repairs or extensive upgrades to bring their homes and infrastructure up to livable standards?

On The Commons with me this week is Robert Nickel.  Bob, a retired truck driver and his wife have owned their Ohio home, built as affordable housing, for a number of years -- but now, they face the true test of, not only affordability, but also of livability.   We'll talk about the quality of life when something as basic as a "private" sewer system fails, how one particular HOA board of directors dealt with the issues and what the individual homeowners have to face.
