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?

Flying High Hot Air Balloon Event

Elvisa from Fitzroy

A free family event!
In collaboration with Sustainable Taranaki, the Flying High Charitable Trust is bringing their hot air balloon to Taranaki this April 2021. The tour aims to promote and inspire sustainable innovation. The three events will provide an introduction and pathway for kids and their families to live more sustainably, create positive change for future generations, and foster innovation.

Energy, transport, waste, sustainable living and sustainable communities are just some of the themes that aeronaut, Andrew Parker, will chat about to inspire children and their families to think about how they can help to create a sustainable future for generations.

The Flying High series of events are kindly funded by TSB Community Trust, organised by Sustainable Taranaki, and supported by Phil Jones Multimedia Artist and the New Plymouth District Council.
