The proposal we are using - I didn't realize the implications of - that all the upper end units could downsize & bump the households in the lower units out. What is the rality of most groups experience with unit selection. >> We used pure seniority, but we also designed our units with the current members in mind. In other words, we pretty ,much had a unit in mind for each existing member when we set the site plan and unit mix. Then when folks dropped out, there were only certain unit sizes available. We certainly do not allow "bumping" once choices are made. Families need to be able to plan for what they will live in and can afford. The only way to get a smaller unit if you have chosen a larger one, is if the family that's chosen the smaller one leaves and you are next in line in seniority to choose it. (I hope that makes sense) We do have a few households that took maybe a larger unit than they would have liked once the unit mix was set. But those folks are pretty attached to them now that they are being built, and I bet wouldn't switch if they could!!

The common house is looking gorgeous with a 12' ceiling in the multipurpose room and a cozy fireplace in the lounge. Can't wait!!! Looks like April might be the first move-ins.
