This discussion has been very enlightening and shouldn't be deep-sixed
because it isn't PC. 

I must say that the men who have been most enthusiastic about cohousing are
those who do NOT have 9-7 jobs, six days a week. It is hard to contemplate
coming home to anything other than four blank walls when you work these
kinds of jobs. And some of the men who are enthusiastic and the wives are
not, are from households where the wives work the 9-7 jobs.

I've done a lot of thinking about what might make cohousing interesting to
these workers. 

And about how much time and planned expense has been taken for the common
house kitchen compared to the workshop which will be built later and has no
budget. It is a square on the site plan--at the far end.
