The Otis Foundation was founded in Bendigo and has expanded rapidly over the last 10 years, providing retreats for women and men living with breast cancer. The Foundation has properties in Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia offering time out to relax and regroup for people dealing with the challenges of this serious illness.
In memory of Kerri Gray, the Otis Foundation and Paul Gray Builders have built Kez’s Hideway at Redesdale, just outside Bendigo. Land was kindly donated by Andrew and Lisa Campbell, and the house has been designed and built by Paul Gray Builders, with furnishings provided by Jimmy Possum.
It has been our pleasure to contribute planning and surveying services to this project. Design elements include a 6+ star energy rating with solar energy, native gardens, and a family friendly layout over three connected modules. Once completed, Kez’s hideaway will be the eighteenth retreat for the Otis Foundation.
