|So what's new in Owner Builder?|
Everyone in New Zealand seems to be talking nonsense about affordable housing.
If you want a house you can afford you need to build it yourself.
It has always been that way and it always will be. It is an oxymoron to suggest that a developer who is in the business of making a profit can also be interested in saving you money. If the government wants to see affordable housing they only need to create a climate which is favourable for the owner-builder. Tony's 2012 submission to the Productivity Commission on Affordable Housing is on their website and also at www.tony-watkins.com/conteent/view/594/83/
In March and April 2012 Tony gave two GAPS present6ations on baches. You will find some of the material at www.tony-watkins.com/content/view/
Good magazine ran a feature article on Karaka Bay. You will find it, along with lots of photogfraphs, at www.tony-watkins.com/content/view/456/83/
I have however never liked the term DIY just as I find it strange to refer to the truth as non-fiction.
