I have to say that the whole trope of "we won't need big kitchens because we'll eat so much in the common house" is a bit stretched. Even if you have two or three community meals a week (we have 1+) that still leaves a whole lot of cooking to do in your own space!

Too small for what?  Reducing footprint has consequences.  Perhaps on 
consequence is to run the dishwasher more often?

Does the developer understand the intention of the community, or ever visited a 
home in Europe and noticed the size of the washers there?

One question that has come up is dishwasher size in the private homes.

Our architect, Charles Durrett (extensive cohousing experience) recommends an 18" unit 
however our developers/project managers (extensive small strata development experience but no 
cohousing experience) say 18" is too small and to install 24" units.
