I think having people working out of their homes can be a real benefit to the community, and likely to become increasingly popular as more and more people work independently. I remember an early study that concluded about 30% of cohousers actually work full or part time from home. Having more people working from home, and their clients coming and going, increases your security with more ³eyes on², reduces driving (and climate impact), and bring positive exposure to the community for future resales. For example, the lovely family that bought the house next door to me in Nevada City Cohousing, knew about the community because they brought their daughter to our common house for violin lessons. Having people working from home also means they are more likely to be around when the community needs someone to let in a repair person or other such things during the day. I would agree with Phillip, and suggest giving it a try, thinking about it optimistically, and if there are indeed problems that arise, then deal with them, or retract the option for people with more than a certain number of visitors for their business. But I¹d hate to see you not even give it a try before you know if there are really any issues. You might be surprized how little you even notice those other visitors.
