How many tables and chairs do you have in your common house?  How many
people can fit at one table?  What shape are your tables?  Do you have
spare tables (say, folding tables) that you bring out when you have
overflow?  Do you feel you have adequate room for overflow tables, if
indeed you use them?

Thanks for your help.  As John Major's post indicated, dining room size in
our common house is something we are currently working on at Wasatch
