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 dining room 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 a window view from the building's hub, and its own bathroom and exit to the outdoors
A recreation/multi-purpose room with ping-pong, foosball, books, games and crafts
A fully-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 large hot tub
A paved courtyard for outdoor cooking, patio tables and children's play
Wireless Internet service
Dual fuel fireplace (gas/wood)
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.
