The Power of Three

I was asked what three questions a perspective cohouser should ask as they visit a place. Wow. I need to whittle down my other blog posts on good fit.

So this is what I think, as of today:

  1. What do you love most about living here? How does that make you never want to leave?
  2. Why have people/families left? 
  3. What have been some of the conflicts? How have they been resolved or ongoing?

Some other questions from websites from cohousing communities:

How do you encourage community and a healthy work-life balance? 
How does the space balance privacy and security?
What are you comfortable with sharing?
Do you feel at ease there?

Here is my favorite article on the topic (again)

About CJ

I was a Spanish teacher for 5 years in the Public School system in 3 different states. I homeschooled and taught at a democratic free school. I heard about cohousing in 2010 and wanted to move in right away. I met a group building one in 2018 and got to move in the summer of 2019. It only took a year to want out.
