Duwamish Cohousing

Welcome to Duwamish Cohousing, located in West Seattle. We are an active cohousing community of 23 residential condos with common grounds and facilities, participatory governance, plenty of community activities, and diversity. Living in a pocket of nature, our units face the community pathway and are surrounded by lush grounds to foster community and connection to the natural world.

We are in an exciting time as our community has been through a strong revitalization that continues to grow. We are always looking for new energy to join our community and make a home here. Our residents and families come together for social events, to manage the community, and to maintain the common elements. We make decisions based on a consensus model, and often use the open space approach to encourage our members to participate in the ways that speak to them.

Duwamish Cohousing was designed with environmental consciousness. Our community is surrounded by trees and native vegetation, including nurturing the lower wetland area. Throughout our community you will find food gardens and edible landscaping, with children snatching ripe berries in the summer. Our units utilize radiant floor heating for effectiveness and energy savings. And we utilize responsible rainwater management, including permiable paving and ecological runoff streams.

Contact us or the unit owners to learn more and to become a member!

If this isn't a beautiful summer meal, I don't know what is. Lovely, delicious; made with love, and shared with good friends.

Duwamish Cohousing shared LADbible's video.

At tonight's community meal, our ratio of adults to pre-teen children was exactly 2:1 -- meaning we've got a LOT of kids around here!

This one goes out to all the parents who come up with ingenious solutions to everyday problems.
