I believe it was Russell Mawbry who posted asking for discussion of Common House noise, but who also suggested that messages on this be privately exchanged. Please post any discussions of strategies on Common House noise--particularly dining room noise--for the whole list. I think this is a major design problem. I have left common dinners breathing a sigh of relief to escape the din and the tension it induces. Anything that drives people out of the Common House is an impediment to building the community spirit we seek. I pass on here a low-tech, unobtrusive aid in sound absorbtion: place carpet on the bottem side of the table tops. An architect mentioned this as having been used by a friend of hers who owned a restaurant. They wanted the sleek, hard surface look, but found the noise levels to be brutal. The restaurant owner thought the hidden carpet helped quite a bit. Cheers, Sherri Zann Rosenthal Eno Commons CoHousing, Durham, NC
