Common House

The large two story building is the heart of our community where we come together to cook and celebrate milestones.  It includes a large common space, dining hall, kitchen, Sunroom with gas fireplace & piano, kids playroom (fully stocked), media room, community laundry facilities, business office and opens to a raised porch and outdoor gathering space.

Outdoor Gathering Space & Children’s Playground

Adjacent to the upper level of the common house is our large outdoor gathering space and kids playground. We’ll often have night-time campfires to gather around. In the summer, the large doors of the dining hall are opened to enjoy the summer weather outside.

Exercise Room and Workshop

Outside the common house, we also have a shared workshop to store tools for community use and to work on indoor projects and an exercise room which includes a punching person, weights and elliptical/ treadmill for resident usage. 

Gardens and Native Landscaping

Duwamish Cohousing is filled with nature, including native landscaping and food gardens, fruit trees, and berries. The South Garden provides both food gardening plots and a quiet place to enjoy nature. Another food garden on the North side includes plots for gardening with the community, often filled with tasty edibles! A forested wetland with footpath is maintained, along with forested slopes and a community orchard. 

Bike and Storage Room

Also available to community residents is a spot in the locked community bike room.  Some  storage spaces can be rented in the community for additional storage needs.
