Some very good news from the Far North. “Don’t wait for the Government” says Reuben Porter. I think we all know why we shouldn’t. EWR
From Bryan Bruce’s VIDEO channel, producer of the award winning doco Mind the Gap on poverty in NZ. An excellent watch.
BUILDING A WHARE UKU
While traveling in the the Far North of New Zealand a couple of years ago Bryan Bruce met Ruben Porter who has come up with his own solution to solving New Zealand’s affordable housing problem. It’s called the Whare Uku or a house made out of the earth . With he assistance of the University of Auckland’s engineering department Rueben is building beautiful homes using rammed earth construction and locally milled timber. But as I discovered Rueben’s not doing it just for himself but to help others.
