The Mosaic Commons Common House is the center of our neighborhood, both physically and socially. It's the place where the community comes together -- for shared meals, for games and entertainment, for meetings, for parties, for hobbies and activities.

Our Common House has

  • A great room for (optional) shared meals and large events
  • A smaller dining room, we call the niche,  for more private meals, or expansion space on the great room
  • A large commercial-quality kitchen with mixed-height work surfaces, gas ranges, two ovens and refrigerators, and commercial dishwasher
  • A kid's playroom with its own bathroom and exit to the outdoors
  • A multi-purpose room with ping-pong, games and crafts
  • A well equipped exercise room
  • A living room for smaller gatherings and casual socializing
  • A music room
  • Shared laundry facilities (in addition to laundry hookups in every home)
  • An herb garden off the kitchen (in addition to a large shared organic garden nearby)
  • A large shaded front porch with tables and chairs
  • Smaller rooms for hobbies, smaller meetings, etc.
  • Mail boxes and coat room
  • Handicapped accessible bathroom with a roll-in shower
  • A outdoor hot tub
  • A paved courtyard for outdoor events
  • Wireless Internet service
  • A gas fueled fireplace
  • Energy efficient heating and cooling (heat pump)
  • Super insulated and low-toxicity, just like all our individual homes

All residents have full use of the common house. It's like having extra rooms on your house that happen to not be attached.
