Four Warrnambool residents are embracing their independence in a new home.
The purpose built Accessible Projects home offers supported living to four people with a disability.
The four were smiling from ear to ear as they gave a tour of their new property on Wednesday.
Residents receive support from disability service provider genU.
Lana Coates, a team leader with genU, said the residents moved in on August 25.
She said the residents loved their new home and were developing strong relationships with their fellow housemates.
"They've loving it," Mrs Coates said.
Residents work together on tasks such as cooking dinner and tending to the home's vegetable garden.
"They've transitioned so well and they're building great relationships," Mrs Coates said.
She said the supported living allowed the residents to maintain their independence.
Julie-Ann Miller, Daryl Ross, Ken Watts and Nicole White welcomed Will Hodgart and Michael Pearson from Accessible Projects to their home this week.
Mr Hodgart said it was incredible to see how happy the residents were to be in their new home.
"Obviously we've been through the whole building process and to see this today - to see how happy they are - that's what it's all about for us," Mr Hodgart said.
He said Accessible Projects would soon start construction on a purpose built property for two people with a disability in Portland.
