Schedule 1 Single Storey (PDF, 3.5 MB)

Example only

This example plan details a single storey brick veneer dwelling on concrete slab. CBOS has updated this design to create a dwelling that could accommodate people with a range of disabilities including physical and sensory.

Please refer to Drawing number UA01 for details.
