Will you make the most of changes to DIY rules?

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, how do you feel about the changes to building consent rules for low-risk home projects?

The government says the change will save homeowners time and money, but pro builder and The Block NZ foreman Peter Wolfkamp, is advising caution if you're planning a DIY sleep-out or office. Find out why, here.

Art Workshops in Khandallah

Morag from Morag Stokes Art Studio

Hi Neighbours – I’m a Scottish/Kiwi painter and Artist Educator with GOLDEN Artist Colors and have been running art classes and workshops from my Khandallah studio over the past 9 years. I’m now planning to get them up and running again post lockdown, starting with a Saturday workshop on Gelli-Plate Monoprinting on 27th June and a return to my regular Artist Sessions groups from Thursday 4th June.
The Artist Sessions are a creative forum for people with some art experience and attract hobby painters as well as professionals who come to work on their own projects with tuition and material support. This link will tell you all about them:
We meet on Mondays and Thursday mornings from 9.30am – 12.30pm and people come for blocks of 6 Sessions at a time.

My weekend workshops are suitable for beginners as well as those with experience and are topic based.

While we are still adhering to Alert Levels, I will have a health and safety plan in place and will be keeping numbers down to no more that 8 people in the studio.

If you’d like to get involved with any of these workshops, do get in touch and I’ll send you more information.

Low-tech solution

The Team from Wellington Water

Sometimes a low-tech tool is the answer.

A blocked stormwater pipe in Titahi Bay led to a CCTV investigation, which identified a blockage about 7 meters from the manhole cover. A water jetter was winched through the pipe and cleared out cans, bottles, Lego blocks and other bits of plastic, but a tangle of roots seen on the screen wouldn’t budge.

Here we have Servicepersons Grayson (at the back holding the handle) and Tito using a corkscrew extended to 7 meters to clear roots out of the pipe.
