I changed the title of this thread since it seems to have changed direction away from sweat equity, which is the use of work to pay down construction costs. Rowena asked about the nature of how to get people to pitch in. As a self managed development, cohousing has some requirements for resident participation. How much any given participant contributes will vary, depending on the tasks and their life. Having seen this issue in lots of different kinds of communities, my advice is to be flexible in your requirements but pay attention, not to what any given person does or does not do, but which tasks get accomplished and which ones do not. The simpliest system I have seen work in several places is some variation of a chore board, where the tasks that are NOT getting done, get posted. If the task does not get done anonymously before the next community meeting, that task becomes an agenda item to discuss.
