I am planning to reply to this off-line, but I have some brief comments for the list. I think this subject is within the scope of Cohousing-L, for these reasons: 1. Many cohousers are, or will be, living in as close proximity to each other as condo residents do. One of the design issues we need to think about is soundproofing between units that adjoin each other or are one over the other. And loud snoring is one reason to have soundproofing. 2. Some cohousers are, or will be, doing house-sharing. In this case, snoring is one of the issues that people need to work. The sound insulation between bedrooms in the same unit is usually less than between adjoining units. 3. One of the reasons for doing cohousing is to make it easier for people to work out issues like this. In a standard condo, resolving a dispute like this can involve up to five people: the person raising the issue, his unit owner, the residents who are the subject of the complaint, that unit's owner, and the management company and/or trustees. A very cumbersome arrangement. Bob Morrison Home: Boxboro, MA Work: Digital Equipment Corp., Littleton, MA
