Freedom Housing looks like conventional housing. That is because it is conventional housing. This is deliberate. From the street, there is no way of telling that the house is a Freedom Key house. 

We do not want to live in accommodation which is identified as having a special purpose: Special Disability Accommodation (SDA). Conventional housing is everyone's preference. 


The house style is entirely up to us to decide. Each house may be of a different shape, size, and fabric to the other three houses. It may be single or two storey, and the land size may also differ from the other three lots. Since the house is the family home, it may be configured to suit everyone's requirements. 
 
Freedom Housing ensures that we can live in our chosen community and that we are included in all that our community does. Freedom Housing works best close to activity centres and public transport. We prefer to be close to where the action is so we can access community facilities, entertainment venues, and shopping centres.
 
Freedom Housing allows us to get on with our lives as a first priority. Our personal care is provided relatively automatically, and it is pushed to the background, rather than it being the main focus of our existence.
