I'd agree that poly is too varied for anything to be considered the "norm" but there are a number of "cohabitating Vees" that I have read about here. If you do a search on "cohabitation" there is some discussion of the subject. Off the top of my head - Phy lives with her husband and boyfriend (I'd recommend reading her blog, as she journals how it all came about), as does Loving Radiance, as does RedPepper (although she and her boyfriend Mono are going through a rough patch right now), as do I.

Me: poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" Vee-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (23+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (4+ yrs) and MrS's best friend
Lotus: poly bi married female, "it's complicated" relationships with Dude/JaneQ/MrS (1+ years)
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.
