Pet of the Day: Baxter

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Nicky Fairclough from Miramar is very proud of her 20 year-old cockatiel who can talk. This time I have attached the photo. Apologies to Nicky, I hope you all enjoy seeing Baxter.

If you want your pet featured, email us on yourpet@dompost.co.nz with a recent photo. Please remember to say what suburb you are from.

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?
