    week for the whole baggage living there. Is that feasable?

    Haven't lived in a student co-housing environment, but know many who did. Most got along ok, kitchen area was always the  hot area, where people had different ideas about hygiene, cooking duties etc.

    But I don't like to be dependent on that, so both should be perfect, private and communal cooking facilities.

      only once a month, so you'd be in great shape. Usually communities have 2-3 (2 in most cases) communal meals a week, so we're talking 8-12 meals a month, and with 12 units that adds up to everyone cooking about once a month and enjoying home-made dinners made by others the rest of the time.

      And yes, each unit has its own kitchen, because you still have to cook for yourself the rest of the time. It's a really nice mix, I think.

      Here's another peek into the Swan's Market communal kitchen and dining room, with their community board and sign-up lists in the foreground.
