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?

Hi Everyone !
Perhaps you are curious about mediumship but a little nervous about receiving a reading ? Relax. There isn't anything to be concerned about. It's natural for us to be a little apprehensive about things we don't understand or know about.
A psychic can predict coming events in your life, but a medium can do that as well as communicate with the spirits of people who have passed over. Psychics and mediums work only in what's called "Love and Light", and there isn't anything to be nervous about. Think of it this way :- A loved one of yours who has passed would love to be able to say "hello" to you and let you know that they haven't gone for good, they are still around you, still caring about you, but have simply passed into another dimension. So, why not just pop along and join our friendly group ? Many people who have joined us at our meetings have been given hard evidence, sometimes even names. A private reading can be arranged for you if you wish.
We are a non profit organisation of volunteers who simply provide a public service for those interested. Our next meeting is on Wednesday the 21st of April at 7:30pm at the Theosophical Society Hall, 9e, Annalise Place, off Forest Glen, off Puriri Avenue, Orewa, and.
There is an off road car park, just look for the flashing Christmas lights. We finish around 9pm and supply free coffee, tea and chocolate biscuits afterwards. And for all this we ask only $5 to cover costs ! ( we have to hire the hall.)
People have received some amazing, enlightening and very comforting readings, as well as good advice. Once you've experienced one yourself it will change your outlook in a really nice way. Forever ! So why wait ?
