Yes please... I could use some visual inspiration as well

This brings up another good question... I've seen the discussion on
planning number of parking spaces per unit, but what's the average
number of bicycles per unit in your various co-housing projects?  It
would be good to realistically plan this.  I was thinking 2 per unit,
but this might be too low.

The themes I've seen so far:

1) Hooks, good for space, bad for folks who can't lift a bike.
2) Need to deal with accessories (seats, trailers, big things that don't
fit small slots)
3) Much underestimation of amount of storage needed.  Is there anyone
out there that has enough bike storage?  If so, please describe your
storage as well as number of spaces in relation to number of housing units.

Really good feedback so far... this is helping greatly.  Thanks!
