@johncoate Yes. You are right. For sustainability and also for the smooth run of the Open Village House Kathmandu, There should be proper planning related to lodging and other related works like roastery as well as coffeeshop. I am thinking to have a bed and breakfast service for co-housing. We can have local housewives as staff to prepare morning breakfast or I myself can very much do it. It was the same at Vietnam when I stayed at Hostel.
This way morning hassle in shared kitchen at peak time can be solved. The shared kitchen can be utilise for lunch/dinner. The student rooms and Guest rooms management need more planning. Do you have any suggestions on it? What I am thinking is to start small at first and then with success gradually increase it, same with the rooms. The room planning at initial phase will be
- One Big Shared Guest Room (Arrangement for 3/4 People)
- One Big Shared Student Room. (Arrangement for 3/4 People)
- One Shared Kitchen along Dinning
- One coworking Room
- Roastery in ground Floor
- Rooftop Coffee Shop
Any thoughts on this?
