Cohousing developments vary in size and design and are not based on any ideology other than working together. Residents organize and equally participate in the planning and design of their homes and neighborhood. Often a dinner club is shared several nights a week where residents work as teams to cook one night, then just come to community dinner the rest of the time. Meetings and meals are held in a central common building called a commonhouse, which can also house other shared neighborhood functions such as day care, a library or laundry. Cohousers work together for the benefit of the neighborhood and know each other well, creating a secure environment for children and adults alike. Total both paragraphs 147 words.
