What is livable housing design?
A home that has a livable design incorporates specific easy living features that aim to make a home easier and safer to live in for all occupants including people with disability, ageing Australians, people with temporary injuries and families with young children.
A ‘livable home’ design is:
- Easy to enter and exit
- Easy to move around in
- Capable of easy and cost effective adaptation
- Respond to the changing needs of home occupants
Who livable housing Australia benefits:
- Families with young children as it makes it easier to manoeuvre prams and strollers and remove trip hazards for toddlers. Moving furniture into and around a livable home is easy with wider doors and corridors.
- People who sustain temporary injuries benefit from livable homes due to the easy to operate door handles and the step free pathway to all key areas of the home.
- Ageing baby boomers who are looking to move or renovate their existing homes will benefit from Livable Homes. As their physical abilities change with age, this growing segment of the Australian property market will appreciate the simple changes to design that make their lives easier and safer. Visiting children and grand children will also be safer in their livable home.
- People with a disability and their families will benefit from livable homes that enable them to take advantage of better housing choices and gives them the opportunity to visit the homes of friends and relatives.

"Couldn't recommend this company highly enough, Jim & Mitch are very friendly and do a fantastic job. Although we designed our plan ourselves, they came up with some innovative ideas that truly made our house complete. Obviously there were a few changes along the way, but nothing was ever a problem, wouldn't go anywhere else, thanks again.".

"We have been in our beautiful home that you designed for us, for approximately 8 weeks now and.... we love it! I really wanted to take the time to write a note of thanks to you regarding the great effort in designing our home. You have a very down to earth and relaxed attitude which was a comforting change and more importantly you were keen to listen to us and work with the initial ideas and budgets we had for the build. You basically took some very early concepts and ideas that we had and developed, shaped and moulded a blend of our ideas and yours into a great family home. We are so happy with what you have done and would thoroughly recommend your services to anyone looking for a great company to deal with in home design".

We use Complete Design & Drafting’s services for all of our new home and renovation building work. Jim has developed designs for duplexes, new builds and renovations that we have then executed. We appreciate Jim’s professional approach and his understanding of not only our clients’ needs, but his ability to produce plans that are functional and practical. Complete Design & Drafting also offer the added service of liaising with engineers and certifiers which from a builders’ perspective, helps streamline the process.
Jay Atkins, Owner/Director/Builder – Jay Atkins Constructions
“Jim came highly recommended to us as we embarked upon our Queenslander renovation. He took note of our budget, wish list and worked with our sketches to design working drawings that our builder could easily execute. Jim’s prompt service and management of the renovation process was invaluable to us. We were well informed all the way and delighted to say, we now have the most beautiful house in our street! Thank you Jim – we have not hesitated to recommend you to our family and friends”.
Carla Burns, Owner & Creative Director, Vanilla Pod (Ascot) – Northgate
“We needed a design for a carport that was in a tricky space. We also wanted something designed that was bespoke to match our Queenslander cottage. Jim listened to everything we required and came up with an amazing design that we never would have considered including getting around a height issue. Not only did we have an amazing design but Jim made sure the whole process was complete all the way through to getting council approval within a tight deadline of 5 days. We would thoroughly recommend him and couldn’t fault his polite and professional service. Thank You”.
