Hi all-
Following up on Robin Alexander's posting about noise issues where he said: 
"Our house is very near the common house and we do hear the basketball  
bouncing, but the bedroom is in the back and is one of the quietest bedrooms  
ever had. Luck of the design, I guess." 
I was on the design team for the house design Robin is living in and I can  
tell you the noise reduction was not just luck.  The group  members and our 
developer, Sherri Zann-Rosenthal, focused hard on making sure  homes and 
would be as quiet as possible.  We all had different  reasons -- mine were 
definitely related to attenuating kid noise.  In fact,  we did such a good job 
that I know some parents in Eno Commons who don't use the  downstairs master 
bedroom in the larger house design because they cannot hear  their kids in the 
night.  So they sleep in one of the upstairs bedrooms  instead.

want to travel in packs?"
