All the latest news and information from Beechwood.

Sea and Tree Changes are often a long-held dream for those living in higher density locations. The lure of a simpler lifestyle with more space and freedom is something we all we wish we could achieve but often dismiss as an unrealistic idea. Apprehensions about the lack of availability of employment, cultural, and educational opportunities can put many people off the thought of making a move to different pastures.

The good news is that in our modern context, we are now able to achieve ideal lifestyles in areas that are not in the conventional metropolitan areas. The South Coast of New South Wales is one perfect example of an area that can offer an excellent balance of lifestyle, affordability, and opportunity. Lower housing prices, easy access to coastal regions, and burgeoning areas of industry and employment are all draw cards to the South Coast, supporting the perfect mix of country freedoms and opportunities.

It is also an area that is committed to expanding these opportunities and growing their various communities in positive directions. Youth initiatives run by organisations such as the Surf Life Saving South Coast Branch and the Regional Development Office Australia South Coast promote inclusion, dedication, respect, and success through various programs, events, and competitions.

Employment opportunities are also well catered for in the South Coast area with the nearby city centres of Wollongong, Nowra, and Shoalhaven as well as many surrounding commercial and industrial areas.

Beechwood Homes are proud to build their quality homes on and around the South Coast of NSW, providing a beautiful and affordable alternative to city living. The fear of restricted opportunity should not dissuade you from considering a South Coast move as the area continues to flourish and develop in the key areas we all need to make a comfortable and positive life.

To check out the homes we have on offer in the South Coast area, take a look at our Home and Land packages or call us to today on 02 4423 0000.

The team at Beechwood Homes have really outdone themselves raising funds for the Leukaemia Foundation during this year’s World’s Greatest Shave which has them currently placed in 6th position on the Top Fundraising Teams National Leaderboard.

The events took place in 3 locations with professional hairdressers, Jasmine Anderson (of Jasmine Anderson Hairdressing) and Brooke Lowe (of Lil Redz Hairdressing) donating their time and expertise.

For team captain, Beechwood’s General Manager Wayne Barton, the charity lies close to his heart, “I recently lost my father to Leukaemia. In in his final days I watched a man who I love, respect and admire suffer as a result of this horrible disease. As I stood by helplessly, I thought, what can I do to help him and the many others that are in the same situation? All I can do is hopefully raise some funds for research for more effective treatments and support for other families who are facing a similar situation to my own.”

The staff of Beechwood Homes, from all across NSW, rallied around Barton and his family to show their support. The team of 19 who signed up to shave, cut and colour their locks raised a staggering $21,000 by the day of the shave, far exceeding their initial goal of $5,000.

Managing Director of Beechwood Homes, Vic Cavasinni generously offered for Beechwood Homes to match dollar-for-dollar all funds raised by the Beechwood Team by the day of the shave. Not only did he did  make this generous offer but he was also one of the members of the Beechwood Team who was brave and shaved his head.

Cavasinni stated, “I was so impressed with the efforts of all my staff, not just those who were brave but also those who gave generously and showed their support. It really does show that we are a tight-knit group. How could I not have the company support the team when the team supports the company?”

Contributing to Beechwood’s success were some of their suppliers: Beaumont Tiles, Trend Windows, Winnings Appliances, Antunes Lawyers, Austral Bricks, Nicsons Concrete, Costas, Savvas Leondas Enterprises Pty Ltd, Marando Solicitors, Redline Enterprises (Aust) Pty Ltd and Brickworks Building Products. Barton had also offered for the highest bidder to win the right to shave his head on the day. A bidding war between Beaumont Tiles and Trend Windows ensued, culminating with Beaumont winning the auction and shaving Barton’s head.

All in all, it was a great result for a great cause with the team raising a total of $48,214.44.

There are a few truths that must be faced when building a new home and one of them is that not every block is easy to build on. Sometimes your block is just not the ideal shape, elevation or position to facilitate an easy process.

This is not uncommon and it is definitely not unconquerable. It does, however, require a little bit of ingenuity and little bit of flexibility. Beechwood Homes are here to provide that flexibility with a range of home designs and the professional experience to suit a multitude of challenging scenarios.

Purchasing a block that features a difficult aspect to its building envelope is sometimes a necessity when you consider the shortage of land that is released, the sky-rocketing costs of land, and the competitive environment in which land is bought in the current market. There are also the scenarios where the beauty of the block is its key feature, and the owners have chosen it more for its outlook than its suitability for building.

Beechwood specifically cater to those who have the now common issue of a narrow block, as we are seeing this on a daily basis with newer estate plans. Having a narrow block doesn't necessarily mean you will need to compromise on the design of your brand new home; you just need to tweak it a little to suit the space you are working with. Particular examples of homes designs to suit these requirements include the Cienna, the Sauvignon, the Lexia, and the Chianti. There is also the option of choosing a home from our double storey range which can often significantly reduce the frontage required from a building block.

The friendly Beechwood staff are happy to advise you when it comes to best design to suit both your family's needs and the requirements of your block. Drop into one of our display homes or give us a call on 02 9616 0999 today to see how we can help solve your challenging build dilemma.

If you have started looking for your brand new home, you will either be totally excited or totally daunted by the decisions you are facing. Where do I build? What do I build? What do I want to live in?

Deciding on the details of your home can be really difficult when you are trying to consider your family's comfort and lifestyle – especially when marrying the elements of their personalities to tangible things such as double or single storey, number of bedrooms, and location. Knowing what you want is not always an easy road to travel and can often be an overwhelming and isolating experience.

Thankfully, the home designs at Beechwood Homes offer a variety of alternatives to suit every family. Our homes offer ultimate flexibility with a range that accommodates single or double storey needs, narrow or expansive blocks, and a varying array of inclusions.

We also build in an extensive reach of locations including the central growth areas of the north and south coasts of NSW, the greater Sydney metropolitan area, the central west, and the Goulburn district. This choice of locations can also open up alternative lifestyle options for you and your family, especially those seeking a more relaxed and inclusive way to live.

It is easy to get too close to such huge decisions, making it impossible to always see the best solution to your needs. Our friendly staff are here to help when it comes to tackling your home choices head on. Beechwood Homes' staff have countless years of experience when it comes to building functional and comfortable homes so we can help with advice and a fresh set of eyes on everything from colour choices to layouts that suit your family.

Sth Shell Cove Seacrest 08

Image shown above is the laundry in Beechwood Homes' Seacrest design, on display at Housing World Shell Cove.

One of the most important things to think about when designing any practical room such as a laundry or kitchen is the roles of form and function; making something look good, but still work well is the dream of every home designer.

Many people often forget about the humble laundry when planning their dream home, some compromise on space while others overlook the fundamental need for storage. It is definitely a difficult balance to strike! A good laundry rarely receives the praise it deserves, a good mixture of storage and bench spaces support the washing and drying appliances meaning that the chore of laundry is that little bit easier every time.

Some great possibilities include pull out folding tables and fold down ironing boards, as they make the folding and sorting of clothes a breeze. Ensuring there are adequate power points is a common after thought, so considering how many appliances will need power, plus any extras (sometimes you might want to charge a phone or plug in some music) is a good tip. Also, clothing racks that let you hang and air clothes are worth their weight in gold if the weather is a little damp out. These can be installed underneath a set of cupboards or over a folding bench.

Big drawers that can hold baskets or built in laundry buckets are some more fantastic ways to keep the laundry area looking neat and tidy. Of course it won't always so a big sink for soaking whites and washing off mud is another handy feature.

There really are so many options when it comes to creating the perfect laundry for your dream home.

Beechwood Homes have a broad range of home designs, all of which provide an ideal amount of space for your laundry requirements. However it is always good to think of your own personal needs to ensure your newly built project home's laundry is tip top! Our FlexiBuild option means that all our designs can be tailored to suit your family's needs.
