Poll: What do you think of Thames' latest artwork?

Kelley Tantau Reporter from Hauraki Herald

David McCracken’s ‘Baron’ was unveiled as the first sculpture on display for the Thames Public Art Trust’s new mission to bring civic art to the town.

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?
