At Sharingwood we built most of our own commonhouse. One process that was very effective was the EBS, the emergency bullshit committee. This was a small task force of building savvy people with one process head who intercepted and dealt with the "Oh my god, what about this that has to be done by tommorrow at noon" type of decisions. The group gave the EBS to explicit permission to do this. Sometimes they broadcast out a call for opinions, sometimes they just did it. It worked really well I think. We also rotated community contractors, so I think we had a total of four members who acted in that role. It was always an unstated option, that if your bitching became untolerable, you would be handed the, being in charge bucket, and then YOU could carry that load. This kept those people that LOVE to kitbitch to a quiet murmer and kept their tone much mellowier. Actually one of them did take up that bucket and did a fabulous job of it.
