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?

Keep me WARM every Winter

Alison Shrigley Reporter from The Bay Chronicle

Help us find forever homes for our beautiful adult cats. They have passed through their cheeky kitten stage, know how to use a litterbox all the time and are just happy curling up with you on the couch as opposed to kitten zoomies around the lounge!!! All our adult cats are available for a KOHA and just want a place of their own to curl up in and sleep the days away.
