One of our members here at Wasatch Cohousing in Salt Lake City is a guitar maker, who has enough generosity and trust in our community that he will have his workshop in the same building as our community workshop and will share some of his tools with us. The community was enthusiastic: having someone on the grounds during the day who is involved in manual tangibly productive work was seen as a very wholesome thing and a great enrichment of the community. For some time it even seemed that a potter would join him, but this fell through. Anyway, in order to turn this dream into reality, we have to build a workshop which is much nicer than what we had originally planned, and we have to be very thoughtful how to mesh one member's private business livelihood with the community. Are there other groups out there who have similar situations, or who have georgeous workshops? And advice and experiences would be welcome. Hans Ehrbar. At Wasatch Cohousing in Salt Lake City, construction has begun, but we still have a number of homes for sale. We have an incredible rural-looking 4.5 acre plot very close to downtown. It's on the wrong side of the tracks, which makes it a little more difficult to recruit, but the people who end up with us are first class.
