Hi Valerie —

Congrats on your cohousing project — 2/3rds completed!  It’s exciting isn’t it?

It sounds as if you have a very organized process for reserving and keeping 
track of your GR usage.

Can you clarify about the accessibility of your guest rooms and bathrooms?  Is 
there a lift for wheelchair riders to access the 2nd floor?  You say both BAs 
have accessible showers - I’m assuming they are roll-in showers which is 
perfect. Roll in showers have no edge to get over.  The user rolls in, 
transfers to a bench or chair and backs out the wheelchair.   Is there a bench 
or chair to sit on for guests who cannot stand?

Also you say the GRs are small.  Are they large enough to accommodate a power 

Best --
