Mukai Commons is Vashon HouseHold’s newest project. In April 2009 we purchased an apartment complex in the heart of Vashon Town and have renovated all 20 units for low income families and individuals. 

The three buildings were in poor condition, having suffered years of neglect inside and out. With the support of King County and Washington State, we bought the buildings and secured grants to fully rehab every unit.

During 2009 and 2010, we replaced windows, doors, carpeting, cabinets, counters, appliances and fixtures in most units.  Problems with wiring, plumbing and poor insulation were addressed as well. We refurbished the building exteriors with new siding, new landscaping and improved parking areas. There is also a new laundry facility.  Mukai Commons is now a safe, affordable and beautiful place to live.

Mukai Commons provides a home to those who cannot afford market-rate rentals. All of the units are affordable to households that meet federal low-income standards. Five of the 20 units are reserved for formerly homeless people.
