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?

Old army hat

Lynette from Harbour View

I bought this old army hat in the Hutt for dress-up's over 20 years ago. With Anzac coming up next month, and not wanting to send it to another op shop, wondered where it would be best to take it. It never had a band on it, and doesn't appear to have any name. Any ideas where I should take it?

Taita aka Avalon Public Hall Mabey St HISTORY

Sandra from Normandale

Anyone know the history of the Taita Public Hall. P L E A S E.
I can find J Cottle in 1904 having the cups and Piano removed from said Hall. Was this where the current Mabey Rd Hall stands which was built 1922 and up for their 100th next year. Hence the need to know.
