Common House usage: At Quimper Village, a senior cohousing community, we have discontinued most uses of our common house due to the Corona virus; however, we do use the atrium for package delivery, a library, sharing or giving away stuff. The laundry room is open for the 13-14 households who use it. The office is open and the bathroom for use by folks working here and members in need. Our standard usage included 2 meals a week and a social hour for up to 35 people each time. Kitchen for meal prep and clean up -- 6-7 people each meal. Laundry room used by 13 households, sitting room with game table & library used by about 15 people a day. 3 guestrooms with bathrooms used over 250 nights a year, a den used for meetings 10-12 times a week, bridge game weekly, visiting nurse visits monthly used by 20 people, whole community (40 people) meetings monthly, committee meetings probably totaling 50 people visits weekly. Coffee bar - about 10 uses a day.
