This is Sylvie Kashdan of Jackson Place Cohousing in Seattle, Washington. We
currently have a treehouse. We understand that our condominium insurance
covers all residents and guests, as well as whatever insurance individual
families have.

You should check with your insurance agent to clarify what yours covers and
if it does not, how much it would cost to add such coverage.

Our thought is that we have a general liability policy and that anyone
on the property should only be here as the guest of a resident who
should have liability coverage as part of their homeowner policy.

We haven't had any other conversations. Liability and risk are things
you can really drive yourself nuts about.
