Friends Old and New,

Once a cohousing group has secured their construction loan, learning to get along is the most challenging aspect of this concept. People need to be reminded (hopefully in a creative, humorous and positive manner) that cohousing is not about getting what YOU want but helping everyone come to decisions that benefit the community as a whole.

It is also not a place to make unalterable stances since coming to an open and creative discussion when one is in the right makes for a very unsatisfying experience. Learn to play well together, listen to what others are suggesting and always look for common ground and your time in cohousing can be both positive and growthful.
