Oh, we do that (as usual, in a small way, mostly holidays). Through broader environmental connections, ex-patriot Pinakarrians and the non-profit umbrella for co-ops, some of us here know people in a co-op called Mia-Mia in Denmark (no not that one! Denmark is a picturesque SW coastal, country town which got hippy-fied a while back). Consequently there has been holiday house-swapping for quite some time. Last year one Mia-Mia family sub-let their house to sub-let at Pinakarri for 3 months while our tenant was away. Subsequently, they've decided to take up the lease on a Pinakarri house that became available. It's an informal and unfolding arrangement. We have a WA Co-ops e-list which is a good way of letting each other know about opportunities. At the moment there are only 11 (rental based) co-ops in the state. BTW, although Pinakarri is only one of two which has a common-house and the only one to embrace the cohousing lifestyle, several co-ops are planning to build commonhouses after seeing the benefits here. In my co-op development role, I will be lobbying for the inclusion in the funding of an office/meeting room as a minimum communal requirement.
