I must declare myself: I am.....not yet a CoHousing resident but have a huge & 
evolving interest in CoHousing Communities.
  For a more general discussion of the concept of CoHousing I have created 
Groups, both on Yahoo! & Google so that all might learn more from, and about, 
each other, in the context of CoHousing:

Heh heh. At EVC we ask the construction superintendent. He's still on site a 
year and a half 
after move-in. He's there at 6am every weekday and many Saturdays. He knows 
everyone, he sees 
everything, and he LOVES to gossip (but in a nice way). In fact, he's become so 
bonded that he 
uses "we" and "us" when referring to the community. It'll be a sad day when he 
leaves (if we can't fix him up with someone in the community first).

Our privacy concerns revolve around (1) dating and (2) the ground-floor units 
that open onto the courtyard. Visitors and even residents will walk up and 
stare in through the windows, making the occupants feel like a human diorama in 
the Natural History museum.
