Sharon Villines said "Cohousing is a lot of work."

However, would you consider living anyplace else?

For me, the answer is I can not imagine living anyplace else. I was laid off from IBM Feb 2002 and went back to school. When I graduated in Dec 2004, there was job opportunties in other cities. I resisted that siren call as I believe eventually there would be another position in the area where I lived. An opportunity did come along and I am glad I never left.

During the four years I was unemployed, I was buoyant from the support of my neighbors. When I was taking classes at NC State (Raleigh), a neighbor gave me a ride during the week. When I graduated from NC State, my neighbors bought me a iPod as a graduation gift. When I was looking for work, I had a secret benefactor leaving me every month $100 cash in an envelope with only "Heinich Computer Services" typed on it. There are other myriad acts of kindness that I received when I needed it.

Leave my cohousing neighbor?  You got to be kidding!

where this weekend'd Community Dayz work day will start work on completing
the upstairs of the Common House.  I will be so glad to say to folks
that they can stay in the Common House's guest rooms when they come to
learn more about Eno Commons.
