I agree with everything that Sharon said about taxes and the issue of liability as being the more important issue to deal with. And while I agree that our common house is used a great deal, during the day our common house is woefully unused. It's during these times that it could be rented out and bring in income stream to our Community which we could certainly use. A few years ago Rebecca Disbrow conducted a study on Common House use as part of her dissertation on Cohousing. It was aptly titled "Where all the people?" The title refers to of course the fact that the common house in most communities is the most underutilized building around. Seems a shame to waste such an important resource when it could be an ambassador for Cohousing in the larger community to say nothing of that income stream.
