In a message dated 97-05-01 11:04:44 EDT, you write: > I have been aware that cohousing groups form committees to do such selections. We were told "Go see such and such model homes. That is what you will get in flooring kitchen cabinets, sinks, lights doors, handles bathroom everything window styles baseboards We went, we saw. Some stuff was OK, much was awful. We formed committees who spent VAST amounts of time looking for affordable substitutes. For many things the answer was " 80% of all homes built today have Fixture A, so it costs less than half the price of the next better thing." We agreed to put our $ into things that couldn't easily be changed later. Some times, there were 2 or 3 readily available choices, like doorknobs, sink handles, door styles. In that case, we did get to choose, by committee. (We kept our list of personal uogade options VERY small). Pam Silva Southside Park, Sacramento
