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?

Crohns

Janet from Halswell

My daughter had Crohns/Ulcerative Colitis for over 10yrs.....debilitating disease, tried everything including Remicade transfusions ( which were terrible)..She tried many things...Anyway just have to share this....nothing in it for me, except somebody else may benefit.....It started in October 2018 first I made her stop ALL medications then fast for a day.....then she started on a strict combination diet ie Alkaline as per R Young AND Lectin Free as per Gundry.....the diet had to exclude each and everything that each diet excluded....anyway...after only 3 weeks she noticed improvement,,, and if she did cheat and consume those foods, same as now, she reacts very very badly to them . But the good news is, a recent 2021 colonoscopy showed a completely healed Colon. She also takes CBD oil as this disease seems to affect the brain, so although not "cured" , she has no disease symptoms and can now break the rules occasionally without any flare, although rarely does as risk not worth it. I hope this post helps somebody else.
