Hi, First question: I'm currently working on a project that will be built in Sechelt BC. The designer/developer I'm working with would like to see some statistics on how much the community kitchen/dining room/lounge area REALLY gets used in cohousing communities. Could anyone help me find such statistics? Chuck Durrett has always posited that communities sharing meals 3-4 times a week are more connected, so my goal is a K/DR/L space large enough to allow for the entire community to be together in comfort for meals 3-4x a week, and for all other whole community gatherings. We're guessing a population of 40-50. Second question: My designer/developer is suggesting that 1200 square feet is adequate for the K/DR/L common amenities space (+ bathroom). The 1200 sq. fit is within an 18' x 66' rectangle, with windows/doors/patio doors along one of the 18' sides. I think we should "take over" the unit next door and design this part of the common amenities along a, twice-as-wide, 36' side with twice the view and exterior ground access. This would give us a total of 1825 square feet and allow us to use the extra interior space for ..??? Would appreciate any feedback/comments. Janey The Coastal Village
