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?

Would you want a final goodbye with an animal you had helped?

Carly Gooch Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Jen Trow earned the trust of Charlie the stray, black cat before taking him to the vet. Thankfully, Charlie was microchipped but Jen would have loved one last cuddle with the cat and to have met his family. Have you ever helped an animal for some time before finding its home?
