Becky from Sonora cohousing asked: "How much does your common house get used for infomal events?..." -A few times a week for ping pong (all ages) or Foosball (mostly preteens). -Once a week or so, the after-dinner hang-out goes on so long I'd call it a separate event. That's a combination of adults and some teens hanging out talking & kids in various places inside & outside the commonhouse playing. -During the school year, there have been clusters of times (a few times a month?) when small collections of teens get together to do homework projects in the CH. -Occaisonally I go down to the CH for a cup of tea and some reading when my wife is napping in the late afternooon, on the weekends. Perhaps others do something similar - it's a pretty invisible activity. -There's a woodshop in the basement that gets used by the authorized users for projects at various times.

Yellow = reserved for residents. Green = vistor parking. Parking is a big deal here - it limits what we can use the CH for (or makes it tricky), and it limits how many extra residents-with-cars we could have. Resident households are guaranteed two parking spots, but there's not a lot of slack beyond that. Our permits, our topography, and our preferences all prevent us from paving much more than we have _______________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list Cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org Unsubscribe and other info: http://www.communityforum.net/mailman/listinfo/cohousing-l
