I'd like to again recommend that we have a layout that can be added to, such as a U shape.  With an O, you run the risk of having to start a new circle when you get more people than the original O can support.

With a U shape, though, those on the end of the U are further away from the community and may feel left out. If you have a big O (think like, dottted O with plenty of room between each house) , you can still add on more people and it feels far more communal

How about not so much of a U as a very, very wide semi-circle (like, if you made the radius, it'd be massive).

We could also go for something like groups of four in a square, then the next 4 expansions are at the diagonals of that square, with the pattern repeating outward, making the very center the communal center for events, meetings, etc. while keeping the general area very open (don't forget we may be able to walk over our houses) for foot traffic and preventing outer areas from being partitioned off. Also, back doors would make it so that travel to and from different houses is much easier and promotes openness.



Can we also consider a mostly-open door policy? Devise some way to indicate desired privacy but promote being open to random visits and drop-ins?

I like your idea LeReveur, I'm all for going with that as it's still communal but allows room for expansion within the community.

I'm all for mostly open doors, as long as we can close it if we need to (in case of zombies!)

Yes we should vote but there's one thing I really want to make clear.  To make use of passive solar energy the house has to have windows and doors on the south side.

Oh...one thing we really should avoid is, like, suburban/urban street type houses. IE, a bunch of houses in a line...*shudders* So uncommunal and boring.

And varied designs! No cookie-cutters!

But yeah, I would be willing to sacrifice a bit of lighting for passive solar energy, lol.

I think the starting shells should all be the same, but after that it's up to the tenant.
