I can understand that if an RTM is robust enough to be trucked in assembled condition, it
has to be strong. At least some modular homes proved to be very strong in the Christchurch NZ
A reasonable Body Corp levy would be an equitable allocation of the costs of running and maintaining a building to a standard that ensures the building will be fit for purpose for the foreseeable...
At last I can understand.
We don't really have what you might call an RTM market in New Zealand, not one that you would recognize as such in the USA or Canada. We are more up to speed on modular homes, assembled on site, but...
I found the original metal spouting and brackets that rusted so quickly were not covered by the NZ Steel warranty, another firm made them. They of course have ceased business.
Just amazing how...
I've now put up plain white plastic guttering with plastic brackets. I thought I would have to paint them blue to match the roofing colour, but to my surprise they look a million dollars just as they...
What I meant, is it automatic when the shower starts. Does it run for a few minutes after the bathroom is vacated, maybe wired into the bathroom light with a delay cut-off.
With ever changing...
So if House A were in Auckland, and House B in Christchurch, do you think that would present differently?
Regarding the Solar tube and fan combo, what turns the fan on & off? Presumably a decent...
Na - Just stop getting filthed up.
Well there go the braces, good that you've got a belt.
I did try anti mould paint many years ago, it might have helped. I'm picking
today's anti-mould is better.
DazRaz is right though, better...
Belt and braces, always a good idea.
Yeah, the concrete "slab" floor high-rise building method also is suspect now,
and the attachment process may need retro upgrading.
These sorts of issues will keep coming up ad infinitum as...
In order of effectiveness:
Big extractor fan
Little extractor fan
Either one of Shower Dome or large extractor fan will do the job alone
as long as they are used...
Ours are residential, in an 11 floor building "rated" mid seventies by WCC. The stairs are too "brittle" (read "strong" in old parlance), and we are busy installing sliders on each floor, just so...
Ideally steam needs to be sucked out before condensing. Once condensed, it's too late, and it then has to be evaporated and removed. The fans normally installed are far too small for the job and only...
Most Kapiti ratepayers are seething about this one Shalodge.
Our councils over many years have failed in their duty.
Infighting, empire building, political correctness gone mad and

You rotten pigs with all your rigs
Jailing our greenies, what meanies
It's cold in your slammers
Where are your manners
You rotten pigs.
I can't take it in
Is it a sin
to be one of them?

and be a father

I don't know what would be required to change our
behaviour - you'd think recent world events would
be an incentive, but apparently not.
This was done by my near neighbour, who has since sold
and turkeyed off.
The house was about 3 or 4 years old when he lifted it
about 7 years ago, so quite modern, all wooden.
Then came the...
I think you are a hero Glenn.
I've been in a similar situation to your deceased tenant's next of kin. I was not able
to go anywhere near where the death occurred, and had no thought whatsoever
I think we may be at cross purposes here.
What do you mean by an RTM home?
You'll have to be more specific. In NZ for instance, I could point you
to plenty of Ready To Move houses you wouldn't like to live in, not
without a lot of work first.
Could also point to...
You're dead right there. The idea is to slow or stop any thermal current being
created by cold air dropping down the inside face of the window and a fresh
supply of warm air feeding in at the...
