(See previous post: nano houses).
The local paper, Kapi Mana News, had this article this week. The 10sqm house cost under $(NZ)10,000, will be ‘off the national grid’, will have the facility to collect rainwater and have a compost toilet. The house will have one room with a sleeping loft.
Can be done.
Christchurch press: Christchurch houses unaffordable (and that goes for the rest of the country too). Bizarre that in a small country like NZ with so many natural resources that houses are unaffordable.
