At Sharingwood we currently have a "virtual" workshop. Tools are loaned freely and between the three carpenter/contractor types we have a pretty amazing set of tools and expertise. There is a work space in one of the basements and also one of the garages of the existing houses. In the plans for our second phase we have a workshop placed on the outside edge of the parking area. Details about this shop are yet to be defined, but the commitment to it is high. (it ranked 2nd in our common facilities priority listing). One of our members died and willed all his tools to Sharingwood. We have a table saw, drill press, huge assortment of hand tools and power tools, 2 chop saws, all ready to be donated by members to the shop so when we get it built it will be pretty well equipt at no extra expense. (We did a survey once and there are 12 hand power saws which members would donate.) The shop is very likely going to be the first building constructed in our second phase, before any of the houses. According to our agent our liability insurance will cover our commonhouse and shop for the same $575 a year we pay now. We asked our agent and he gave us a quote for fire insurance for both buildings at an extra $240 a year. So our total insurance cost will be $815 a year which works out to $2.34 per month per household. (costs divided by 29 households divided by 12 months) Even if our insurance rates tripled it would still be trivial - one of the advantages of being in a group. The current and future insurance costs are covered in our monthly assessment. Do a little math for your group and I bet the monthly insurance costs for your group will also be trivial for a shop.
