Every family is different in its own way. Deciding on not only the current and short term needs of your family, but also the long term requirements you will have from your household is an important step of building a project home. A recent Multi-Generational Study by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute shows that one in five Australian households have adults from two or more generations living under one roof. The report shows that multi-generation living arrangements are highly-concentrated in and around suburban areas.

When planning your new home, it’s important to try and plan for your family’s future. For example, trends show that children are staying at home longer, so planning separate living areas and kid’s bedrooms that may become bedrooms for young adults at a later stage are part of the design and planning process. As parent’s age and retire, perhaps they will stay for extended periods or even become dependent.

Beechwood Homes understand that not all families operate under a traditional model and design and plan houses with this in mind. The award winning Asquith 36 single storey home is a great example of a floor plan designed for multi-generational living.  The Asquith 36 features a separate guest wing, complete with ensuite and robe as well as three separate living areas that can be used as a study, theatre room or traditional lounge room. The Asquith 36 home design recently won ‘Best exhibition/project home from $250,000-$300,000’ at the 2015 Master Builders Association of NSW Excellence in Housing Awards.

The Asquith 36 is a single storey home and part of Beechwood’s popular Evolution series. You can view the Asquith 36 at Housing World, Shell Cove on the South Coast and also Hunter HomeWorld at Chisolm, Berry Park on the North Coast.

Beechwood Homes have a wide range of project building options to account for nearly every type of family model, meaning whatever your situation - everyone can be comfortably accounted for.
