Maryann Jones JONEMA [at] DWQ.SWRCB.CA.GOV is the author of the message below but due to a problem it was posted by the Fred the list manager: owner-cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- I am in the Southside Park cohousing. We had space identified in our plans from the start for a clothesline areas. When it came time to install the clothesline, a group of people were horrified that we would even consider having our laundry hanging out for everyone to see. Eventually it got put in and no one has really complained since. It is a round one, it is permanent and not retractable. It is pretty visible during the winter, but the rest of the year it is hidden by gardens. It gets a lot of use. I would make sure that it is in the plan before you move in. That is one thing you should discuss early on. Of course, my experience living in cohousing for almost seven years has been that there is no argument too trivial and no issue that can't be beaten into the ground and then resurrected from the dead years later. >>> Arlene Hoffman <ahoffman [at] visualimage.com> 08/20/99 09:53PM >>> Dear fellow cohousers, Some time ago I wrote to suggest a community clothesline, and one of the kind responders warned that it should be in the plans early, because some people would have issues about it. Now we would like to consider the idea at EcoVillage in Virginia, and we are wondering what those issues might be. We also would value any hints about what kind of lines and layouts work best. Do retractable lines work out well? How long can they be and how do you support them in the middle?
