At Tierra Nueva (cen. CA coast) all of our homes had to have laundry hookups to satisfy the bank who gave us our construction loan. I used to be part of the subgroup of members who in the name of voluntary simplicity, waxed poetic about how we can all do our laundry in the common house, sharing resources yadayadayada. Now, after living here nearly two years, boy howdy I am glad that most of the families with children installed washers and dryers in their homes. I love the fact that the common house laundry room is available for those of us who don't have mountains of laundry, and can live with a 3 hour block of time once a week. If we all did our laundry commonly, it would be a nightmare of logistics. So blush not. Laundries in individual homes will not compromise the spirit of community and the cohousing ethic.
