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?

Tree topping

Ade from Trentham

I have 7 trees on my property, ranging in heights from about 4 to 7metres, that block sunlight from my lawn and house. Each tree needs to be reduced in height (crowned?). I would appreciate someone who is reliable as I have had a few people say they will turn up but fail to do so! Please respond if you can actually do the job in a timely manner. Thank you.
