I've always imagined that more centrally-located CHs have more > hanging out, but perhaps that's not true. Our CH is also located at one end of the site. This was, I believe, primarily for the convenience of the developer, since the CH must exist before they can legally begin selling units, and it's easier for the builder to start at one end and work their way down. I also believe it was not the best location. Common areas should be at the center. We also have no TV in the CH, even though our library of videotapes is there. :-) Overall, our "sitting room" with comfy sofas and a fireplace and a piano seems to get a fair amount of use, but the main room (dining area with hardwood floor) gets very little outside of meals, meetings, and planned events. We're currently working on making other "places" to hang out in, such as a sitting circle under a shady tree. All of these so far are done in temporary ways so we can see if we like them. Howard A.
