What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

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 kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?

Crohns

Janet from Halswell

My daughter had Crohns/Ulcerative Colitis for over 10yrs.....debilitating disease, tried everything including Remicade transfusions ( which were terrible)..She tried many things...Anyway just have to share this....nothing in it for me, except somebody else may benefit.....It started in October 2018 first I made her stop ALL medications then fast for a day.....then she started on a strict combination diet ie Alkaline as per R Young AND Lectin Free as per Gundry.....the diet had to exclude each and everything that each diet excluded....anyway...after only 3 weeks she noticed improvement,,, and if she did cheat and consume those foods, same as now, she reacts very very badly to them . But the good news is, a recent 2021 colonoscopy showed a completely healed Colon. She also takes CBD oil as this disease seems to affect the brain, so although not "cured" , she has no disease symptoms and can now break the rules occasionally without any flare, although rarely does as risk not worth it. I hope this post helps somebody else.

Marc from Hornby

Sadly the Mayor is not feeling well today and has cancelled all her appointments today which includes coming as Guest Speaker to the GHRA AGM tonight. Our apologies but we currently working on a replacement speaker as we speak (Pardon the Pun).

The Annual General Meeting will still go ahead as planned.
