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.

We recent featured a photo sent to us from Robina Davies who was trying to identify those in the picture from her mother's collection.
Her mother was Olive Whitelaw, who played cricket for Wellington Technical College Old Girls. She suspected it might be from before 1939.
Journalist and sports historian Ron Palenski has come up with a name for us.
"I'm pretty sure the pic is of Violet Aline Caton and Stuart Dick on their wedding day at All Saints', Kilbirnie, on Feb 26 1944.
The big clue was women in the uniform of the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps presenting a bouquet of vegetables; another clue was that it was most likely a newspaper photo because of the quality.
Stuart Dick is wearing an RSA badge in the photo. He was a sergeant in the 25th Battalion."
He even attached a picture of the gravestone.

We are desperately searching for our precious two kiwi soft toy friends that were lost in the carpark of Ataturk Memorial Park, Strathmore Park, Wellington, between 3 and 4pm on Saturday 20 February 2021.

They were wearing white and yellow Japanese fortune charms as in the photo (left) and were in a blue drawstring bag (right top). There is also a small tag “NativeZ Made in New Zealand” (right bottom) attached to them.

They have been with us for over 15 years since our first visit to NZ and have shared all the memories of our life in Aotearoa.

Any information to Yusuke (021456580) or Nanase (021456510) would be much appreciated.
