The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email email@example.com, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?

Hey neighbours, did you know...
Ivan Donaldson first planted a small vineyard in Canterbury soil in the seventies as a hobby.
The vineyard was one of the first ones to be planted in the region and quickly turned into a love of wine for the former neurologist, who sought to pursue winemaking as a full-time career.
This year, the family celebrates three decades since Ivan first released a Pegasus Bay vintage from his garage, with the responsibility now resting on eldest son and winemaker Mat Donaldson, who has since produced the next 27 of the family’s 29 vintage wines.
The winery now exports to more than 25 countries.
