Hi. I'm Laura and I live in metro Atlanta with my husband and 3 kids (13, 9, and 4). There are two co-housing communities in Atlanta. We are interested in both. However, we don't know anyone who lives in either community. What is the best way to get a feel for how a particular co-housing community works on a day-to-day level as an outsider looking in? Co-housing is different from subdivision living, in that there will be much more interaction with our neighbors. That's great because that's one of the things that attracted me to co-housing in the first place - a sense of community that we don't have in our current location. As a general question, what is the best way to determine how our family would fit into a particular co-housing community? I am most concerned with how our kids would fit in, and whether our parenting styles would clash with those of the other families. Questions that are tough to answer in just a short visit to a community. If you moved into an established co-housing development, can you please share how you got a feel for the place prior to making the commitment to live there? I've considered renting for a year, but that's probably not feasible because we don't want the headache of renting out current place.... Thanks- Laura Jones --------------------------------- Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo! Mail - You care about security. So do we.
