Design and Construction

The Julia Farr Housing Association (JFHA) believes good design, location and construction make a significant difference to the lives of our tenants and those we assist to build their own homes. 

We are passionate about access. We work with trusted contractors to design and construct a range of fully accessible dwellings suited to individuals, couples, families and co-tenancy arrangements.

You won't find ramps, steps or stairs in our homes and will be hard pressed to find an annoying lip or ridge. Our kitchens are designed with adjustable bench heights and light and power switches are placed where everyone can reach them. Our doors are wide and easy to navigate, even if you use a large electronic wheelchair. 
All of our new dwellings exceed both Adaptable and Liveable Design Standards.

JFHA provides inclusive technology in our homes.

Our gallery and the Opening Homes website showcase homes and how people are achieving the benefits of accessible homes.

By recording your interest in our housing programs you will help us to understand what and where to build. You will also be able to nominate for housing opportunities as they become available.
