Dear Fellow Cohousers, Bridport Cohousing, Dorset, UK We are just now designing our common house and so I'm writing to ask you all what advice you have for us. We will be building 30 homes and a common house, probably using strawbales, total indoor size 200 square metres, on a South facing field in Dorset, Southern England. Of course our 16 members all have ideas and hopes for our common house, but I want to ask people already living in a cohousing neighbourhood, if you were starting from scratch, building your common house, what would you include and what would you do differently? We definitely want a kitchen and dining room for 70 people, but beyond that we are open-minded. Specifically, I'm thinking about guest rooms, laundry, bike storage, workshops, large meeting room, small meeting room(s), lockers, pigeon holes for post, therapy rooms, teenage space, office space, outside party space... Any ideas or suggestions? Thank you Sally Collings
