Hi Raines!

The Cohousing Research Network did collect a lot of this information but 
reported it in percentages.  I need numbers.  I’ve emailed both Diane Margolies 
and Angela Sanguinetti for the data.  I’m hoping to hear from them.  However, 
just in case, I’m hoping someone out there has a number they are using …

Let us know how this shared pool is going to work. It sounds very useful!
