The Beechwood Homes Group is proud to announce the launch of a new division, Ascension Living, specialising in the construction of granny flats.

Speaking at the launch at the HIA Home Show in Sydney, Beechwood’s Managing Director, Vic Cavasinni, said “This is a great day for our business. For over 35 years, Beechwood has been building modern, spacious and affordable family homes. We have now developed a modular building system to streamline the building process for granny flats and as a result we can offer customers an 8-10 week build time. What’s more, customers do not need to build a new Beechwood home in order to be able to build an Ascension Living “Bijou” granny flat in the backyard of their property.”

To mark the occasion, Ascension Living has constructed a new, full size granny flat which is on display at the ICC International Convention Centre at Darling Harbour, Sydney for the HIA Home Show this weekend. Of course, the “Bijou” granny flat comes with the quality finishes, inclusions and appliances that one expects from Beechwood.

People attending the HIA Home Show will be able to touch, feel and experience a “Bijou” granny flat. The HIA Home Show runs until Sunday, 26 March 2017 and entry is free.

Last weekend's final round of the Australian GT Championship was a success for Nathan Antunes. He goes on to recall the highlights for us at Beechwood Homes;

Antunes writes "After luck going against us in race one with a puncture in the tyre before the race started in the formation lap I had to pit to change just as the lights went green. I pushed hard and set a new lap record in race one, handed the car over to Elliot and he did an awesome job driving back into 7th position.

Race two and Elliot started, did a great job and got into fourth position before handing over to me. I knew it was going to be tough because all the other pro drivers were in the car when I was in the car but put my head down and work my way to 2nd position and then after a safety car restart I got the lead into turn one. I then proceeded to set the lap record again against all the other factory drivers which I am super happy with.

That has put us second for the round and we come home with a trophy.

The Beechwood Homes McLaren wins the last Australian GT Championship race of the year!!!"

We would like to congratulate Nathan Antunes on a successful finish to the 2016 Australian GT Championship.

Nathan-Antunes-McLaren-650s-GT3-Australian-GT-Perth-2016

The Beechwood Homes McLaren 650s GT3 was in action in Perth last weekend for Round 3 of the Australian GT Championship.

Nathan Antunes kicked off Race 1 on Saturday after qualifying in 8th position and quickly gained a couple of positions in the rain. However, when a safety car was deployed with the rain easing off, the team decided to make a strategic early pit stop to change to quicker, slick tyres. However, the tyre change was not completed before the field re-emerged and the team was lapped whilst in pit lane. Had the tyre change been completed a couple of seconds earlier, the pit stop could have been a genius move. As it turned out, those few seconds doomed the team to a 13th place finish in Race 1.

Elliot Barbour started Race 2 on Sunday and made up 4 spots before a massive head on crash saw racing suspended for 30 minutes (half the allocated race time). When the race resumed following a driver change, Nathan was able to get up to 5th position. When compulsory pit stop times were later added, the team finished in 2nd place for Race 2.

The boys finished a credible fifth in the weekend and have moved up to sixth place in the Championship ahead of the next round at Phillip Island on 27-28 May 2016.

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.
