We don't charge for guest room use. Reason #1: If the common house is an extension of our home...so are the guest rooms. Do you charge your mother or sister or friend to stay in your guest room in your house? Of course not! We all shared the cost of building the guest rooms, we share the cost of maintenance etc., whoever uses it cleans up afterward. It's family, it's hospitality, not commerce! Reason #2: Financial/legal considerations. At least here in California, any income to an HOA that is NOT dues, is taxable. Plus we don't want to be misinterpreted as running a B&B or hotel (we are right downtown in a small town and highly visible). Reason #3: General pain-in-the-butt-ness of collecting and tracking. I confess I do not understand the reasoning of those of you who DO charge. The amount most cohos charge seems to be low, does it really offset costs? Or is it mostly symbolic? ------------------------------ Eris Weaver, Graphic Facilitator & Group Process Consultant Founding Member, FrogSong cohousing in Cotati, CA eris [at] erisweaver.info . 707-338-8589 . http://www.erisweaver.info
