Thanks Micheal Bell Architects Pty Ltd, I actually had great fun writing that article as well as discovering / learning myself the history of the Beachcomber too.

Fabulous article....thank you!
We start renovating our 1962 Beachcomber style home this Monday! Filling in downstairs first. The lime green kitchen in original condition still holds it's fresh quirky novelty for us so we will be leaving as is for a while.
Lots of beachcomber style homes in our area, (Davistown on the NSW Central Coast) have been renovated considerate of the classic shape and style of the original homes so we have found great inspiration in our local area.
