Latest job completed

Nick from Nick The Builder

Howdy Neighbours.
Just finished this wee job today for a lovely couple in Glendowie. A small deck off the main deck for the new clothesline with an Aluminum screen as a wind break as well as visual appeal. Also a small retaining wall to carry the flagstone pavers for access to the clothesline. The owners are going to pebble and bark around the pavers at there leisure. Im looking forward to seeing the end result. This deck was fixed off entirely with Stainless Steel screws, brackets etc, not a nail to be seen. Although the framing members are H4 treated all cuts were treated with timber preservative for added longevity. All this was overseen by site supervisor "Bob" the cat.
Hopefully he's happy with the result. 😁

There are three simple things we can do to help improve the quality of recycling that’s being collected.
1. Completely empty out containers, especially ones with liquid or drink.
2. Rinse out all containers. The cleaner the better is the rule of thumb.
3. Sort your waste carefully to make sure only the right recyclable containers from the kitchen, bathroom and laundry go in the recycling bin

Traffic congestion on Kohimarama - St Johns roads

Jan from Kohimarama

Does anyone else find that the Felton Matthew lights have caused chaos on Kohimarama / St Johns roads? It now takes up to 20 minutes to make what should be a 6 minute journey to Glen Innes or Stonefields. The lights took long enough to be set up but now there is a constant logjam from St Heliers Bay Road through to Felton Matthew Ave. It is particularly exacerbated by location of the bus stops and by cars parked on the side of the road. Should we as a group be asking/telling the Council to get it sorted ?
