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?

Cell Phone in car use

Robert from Motueka

Just so you know if you get caught using your phone will driving the FINE has now doubled to $150. Driving between Motueka and Nelson every weekday I have lost count of drivers using their phones. I do hope you get caught. The fine should be $500 and your phone taken off you. 22 people have died on NZ roads in the past 5 years due to phone use.
Just my thoughts.

750 new builds in Nelson

Pene from Stoke

Well, in this mornings news they have stated that they want to build 750 homes in Nelson. What a flippen joke. Not against new homes but w here is the infrastructure to accommodate an increase of population. They also said it might get a little more busy, or words to that affect. Now I know for sure that this tin pot town is down the tubes. We need a decent mayor in power and not one that is more concerned about image and smiling nicely at the camera. Oh Nelson is a lovely town, maybe once upon a time but give it a couple of years with this lot in power and it will be bedlam trying to get anywhere. Oh but we have a 40 mill library, well whippy. 😡

House bricks

Sean from Toi Toi - Washington Valley

I need four house bricks to repair a hole in the wall of my house. They are proving hard to find... 230x75mm or close. Colour is not an issue - not compared to the hole anyway ;-)
