Hi- I am checking to see whether we put a number in our docs for Eastern Village Cohousing back in 2003 or so. On the advice of our sister (aunt?) community Takoma Village Cohousing, we did insist on spec and design changes for walls to address sound transmission issues. We followed up by directing our owners' representative to be obsessive about inspecting implementation and immediately reporting issues. Overall, our experience with sound transmission between units has been satisfactory. There are some oddities, and crying babies still can be heard in neighboring units in a muffled way. Also, we learned that some decorating choices, such a fastening a headboard to a wall, can thwart unit design and amplify sound. If your members care deeply about sound transmission, I recommend educating them about how post move-in choices can change perceived performance. I don't believe EVCwill have anything spec'd for floors. We were a gut rehab and all our floors were existing very thick concrete with steel rebar. -Jessie Handforth Kome Eastern Village Cohousing Silver Spring, Maryland Sent from my iPad > On Mar 6, 2015, at 10:19 AM, LESLIE PETERSON <leslie.peterson [at] me.com> > wrote: > > > PLEASE INCLUDE COPY OF REPLY DIRECTLY TO: leslie.peterson [at] me.com > >
