While the "Co-housing in the Netherlands" article describes an arrangement that works for the families there, it seems to fall quite short of co-housing or even communal living, really. It sounds like the major motivator was financial: it allowed the families to get more "physical home" than they could have individually. The only shared spaces are a garden and a sort of indoor patio. Residents state that they don't interact with each other very much, mostly saying hi while coming and going, and that they "live very private lives." There was no mention of shared activities besides the garden and as few meetings as possible (maybe an outdoor fireplace coming). Co-housing is so much more! Joyce C.
