Hi Fellow Cohousers,
The common house for Oak Creek Commons in Paso Robles,CA is due to come on-line 
in the next week or so.  I am part of the initial Kitchen Management crew 
trying to decide on outfitting our beautiful kitchen.  One of our big decisions 
is the refrigerator and freezer.
We are a group of 56+ adults and 18 children under 18 years.  
We have already installed a wonderful Dacor commercial double oven/range.  
The space for the refrigerator is quite large, 40 3/4 wide x 78 1/4 high x 35 
1/2 deep. 
First of all, what size should we be shooting for in cubic feet for our group?  
Should we use residential or commercial refrigerators?  Is an all-refrigerator 
solution with separate freezer a better solution than an integrated 
We've been advised to get the largest refrigerator we can handle, space-wise 
and cost-wise.  Would this be your advice?
Best of all, what has worked for you and what hasn't worked for you?  We'd love 
to learn from your experience.  What size refrigerator and/or freezer works for 
your group and what is your group size?
Thanks for helping us out.
Happy Cohousing,
Rosalie Wolff
