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?

Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

This week we feature a picture of a starling by Louise Thomas.

"The variety of plumage at the moment on young birds as they transition into their adult feathers is amazing. I think a few years ago I would have thought of starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) as a dozen different species if I thought of them at all. Many of the new generation still have their brown heads, but are developing their star-spangled chest feathers. Mature feathers coming in on their backs are beautiful, with pale brown borders and the middles an iridescent green in the sunlight. Nature is an artist."

RIMU DRAWS

Evelyne from Masterton District

Hi guys would like to swap my gorgeous scotch chest of rimu draws for a smaller set. It is far too big for my spare bedroom. Is there anyone out there wanting to help me achieve this photo of my one. Glass not included will have to resize it for smaller one. Draws must be no wider than 800 and no taller than 1200. Thanks
