Rose Common is a developing vegan housing co-operative. We currently have four members, and we live in the house we plan to buy (as it belongs to the family of one of our members). We’re looking for a fifth member to join us, and move in with us in autumn 2020.
The house is detached and set in some beautiful woods between Heeley and Meersbrook. There’s a big garden where we’re beginning to grow vegetables, and the house is looking pretty homely. We have a good sized sunny kitchen, a living room/dining room with loads of light (photo above), a garage, a greenhouse, a toolshed and outside loo, two bathrooms, five bedrooms and a spare room we plan to develop.
The house is communal, so we eat together, hang out, play games, have bonfires, and generally spend a lot of time together while also having our own independent lives.
We’ve installed a new shower, done lots of decorating, and got some good systems in place to make sure things work long term.
