Judy Baxter asked about guest room usage. In our programming for our commonhouse I was surprised that nobody listed guest space as a use. It got brought up in our programming group sessions and no one felt it was needed in the commonhouse, and more than a few didn't want more than very temporary (like 1 night) visitor within the commonhouse. (The end plan has no separate space for overnight although the "lounge" could be used for such but it would be not very private). The one thing people felt strongly was that the commonhouse was our community space and that having private lodging would inhibit our use of the space. However, we also saw that we wanted and needed transitional housing for people getting divorced, kids growing up, folks we want to offer sanctuary to etc. So the gist of it is that we wanted some short and long term guest space, just not in the commonhouse. Since the only other spaces we have are private homes, we defaulted that overnight and longer term guests will stay in private homes, if any such space is available. Right now there are 3 private guest spaces available at Sharingwood and 3 rental spaces (which are house shares). And of course there is always the campground. When one of the neighbors had a large family reunion five of the houses accommodated relatives sleeping on couches, spare rooms, etc. We have had a number of visitors come from out of town and stay in spare rooms and it works for us now.
