Celebrating Brisbane’s Senior Citizens

We love everything there is about living in the South East of Queensland, from the sun, to the ocean, to our unique history. However, all of this wouldn’t mean a thing if it wasn’t for the most valued possession we hold: our community!

And what would our community be without our Senior Citizens?

From Saturday the 15th to Sunday the 23rd of August Queensland will celebrate the 60th anniversary of Seniors Week. We here at O’Shea & Sons want to take a moment to honour what our Senior Citizens bring to our wonderful sunshine filled community. Our seniors have faced much adversity and shown great resilience over the years to build what is one of the greatest places to live on earth, and we couldn’t be more grateful for what they’ve built.

O’Shea & Sons wants to continue on in the spirit of hard work and excellence that our predecessors showed in order to continue to strengthen our great community.

The Home as a Sanctuary

A luxury custom home will likely have a very different meaning for older people. Often it is a place that has become luxury thanks to the many well spent years inside, with all the quirks and idiosyncrasies that have been built up over a lifetime of living. For children and grandchildren, a grandparent’s home can be a sanctuary: a homemade cake and a hot cup of tea and everything suddenly feels ok.

It’s this sense of sanctuary that no person in their right mind would want to disturb. This can become tricky when a certain part of the home isn’t quite ‘working’. Something about the living room just isn’t quite right, or a section of a kitchen seems clunky but you can never quite put your finger on it. 

What might be needed in this situation is not a complete renovation, which can be a very long and disruptive process, but a transformation!  

OSB Transformations

This new branch of O’Shea and Sons is the perfect offering for our valued senior citizens. We understand that by this stage of life you probably don’t want to be wasting time on extravagant and disruptive projects. It’s time to enjoy the things you love to do and spend time with the people you love to spend time with.

Think of a transformation as a kind of mini-renovation. While a renovation might make your kitchen, for example, unusable for 6 months and completely change the flavour of your home, a transformation will focus on aspects that aren’t functioning and transform them to make better what you already love.

For example, you love the kitchen bench, it’s a place where the family easily congregates and laughs over a shared meal but the sink has always been a source of frustration, never quite handling what you want it to do. Or perhaps the laundry has become not just a place to wash and clean clothes, but a landing place for everything that doesn’t have a place and the clutter is beginning to drive you insane!

Whatever the problem is, you might be surprised at the possible and clever solutions available. Our team has had many years of experience in major renovations and we’re now bringing that expertise to the smaller and more intricate problems that every home can face.

If you’re a senior citizen who has contributed to our great community over the years, there’s a good chance you’ve been living with a section of your sanctuary that has been frustrating you for years. OSB Transformations is designed specifically for these kinds of situations. Don’t waste another year getting frustrated in the same old room. 

Let us help you celebrate Seniors week in transformative style!
