The house is divided into 7 private, self contained flats of varying size, one of which is rented. We also have some communal rooms in the house and share all the outdoor space. New members buy into the co-operative through purchasing loan stock giving them a 1/6th ownership of the entire property and grounds.
Daily life at Dol-Llys is more in line with co-housing. A key difference is that we are not an “intentional community” in the general ideological sense. We have different outlooks and lifetyles; our focus is mainly practical and is centred on sharing and caring for communal space, green space and some material resources. We share workloads equitably and this means we call all enjoy and benefit from sharing the house and gardens and some resources. By meeting, working co-operatively and eating together each month we are able to build friendly neighbourly relationships.
