Finding a home
that's right for you

Building an SDA home means trade-offs and difficult decisions. Persisting, however, is absolutely worth it! We’ll be upfront about the challenges and be clear about what’s possible. Let’s be clear, building a home under the NDIS is hard. Government funding is tight and property prices are rising. We customise homes for all our residents. Family home, duplex or self-contained apartment? What suits you best? We all want a home in which we can feel safe and secure. Working with our team means starting a discussion about your future. 

You won’t have to organise finance, manage consultants or navigate your Development Application through the council.  You won’t need to worry about registering your SDA home or ongoing compliance with the NDIA. You won’t need to worry about setting aside money for ongoing maintenance. BlueCHP, through its Guide You Home initiative, is a registered SDA provider, which means we’ll take care of all of this for you.

We build homes in the four SDA categories in all Australian states and territories except WA. Our Guide You Home team is happy to work on any SDA home from a new build to purchasing and converting a new apartment. We’ll support you every step of the way!


Improved Liveability

Homes designed for Improved Liveability help provide a reasonable level of physical access for people living with sensory, intellectual or cognitive needs.

These homes are designed to help residents live safely and independently. Features like luminance contrasts, easy navigation and lines of sight, light-based doorbells and alarms and hearing augmentation can be helpful for residents with sensory needs. Those with intellectual and cognitive needs might benefit from labelling, the use of contextual cues, increased lines of sight, consistency in locations of fittings and fixtures
and reduced lighting and stimuli.

Designed to fit in with the neighbourhood and offering plenty of opportunities for outdoor and social enjoyment, Improved Liveability homes support the particular needs of the residents and give them a home they can make their own.


Resilient and sturdy, the Robust home is built to accommodate and support people with complex needs.

A priority of this design is to keep residents and carers safe. High impact wall lining, fittings and fixtures, secure windows, doors and external areas, laminated glass and soundproofing, and spaces for residents or carers to retreat, are all features that can be included to help create a safe, accessible and manageable home.

Durable but inconspicuous materials are used so the home fits in with the surrounding neighbourhood and is strong enough not to require constant maintenance.

Fully Accessible

A high level of physical access is the priority for Fully Accessible houses which are designed for residents living with physical disabilities. Wheelchair accessibility plays a vital role and amenities are designed to make using them as straightforward as possible. For example, bathroom vanities, kitchen sinks and benches, cooktops, dishwashers, ovens, washing machines and dryers can all be used in either a standing or seated position. Assistive technology and some automated functions can be helpful here also.

Fully Accessible homes support the needs of residents and empower people to function safely and easily in their own home.

High Physical Support

High Physical Support homes are designed to support residents with significant physical needs who require a high level of support. These homes have the features of the Fully Accessible home along with extra structural provisions for things like ceiling hoists and 950mm clear opening width doors to habitable rooms. Assistive technology can play at important role in this kind of home with emergency power solutions being especially critical where the welfare of residents is at risk.

As with the other categories, access to outdoor areas and designing a house that fits in with the rest of the neighbourhood are essential to creating a satisfying home life for residents.
