Hello, I have never blogged' and don't live in co-housing, but am interested in it. But my thought is, if you are choosing co ho, you probably have to be okay with honestly facing interpersonal conflict, even if you don't know the neighbors all that well, the housing jusy seems set up for More real life encounters, for better or worse, so to speak. Is that most co ho's experience, that it can be more messy but if you face it it's much more rewarding than suburban isolation!? Thanks, e.e.

Because my husband and I were some of the last buyers, we had to buy what was left-- a single family home. Since then I have joked that I have "duplex envy." Our neighbors who share a porch seem to have more fun. They can have more spaces for hosting people and hang out together a lot. It helped that most of the folks were friends with their duplexmates before move-in.
