THE MUCH awaited retirement

complex in Leeston has finally

opened, signalling a new era in

future planning for the district’s

ageing population.

Abbeyfield House was officially

opened on Saturday by Selwyn MP

Amy Adams.

The complex on Flannery St,

Leeston, provides accommodation

for up to 14 residents and has taken

nine years to complete.

It is for over 65-year-olds, single

or widowed, in the community.

Selwyn’s population in the last

census was 44,595. However, it is

expected to grow to 67,728 by 2025

and 86,440 by 2040.

Mayor Sam Broughton hopes

to see more places like Abbeyfield

House opening up in the future to

accommodate for this growth.

“I think there is opportunities for

similar types of facilities in other

towns around Selwyn. If we can

learn from what they have done

in Ellesmere that would be really

great,” he said.

THE HEAT has now really gone on the

Templeton quarry row (see page 3).

Fulton Hogan is exploring a new site,

very close to the 170ha area it wants to

quarry for the next 40 years.

That plan has been met with fierce

resistance from Templeton and Weedons residents, and now the

latest move will add fuel to the fire.

The 2011 earthquake has proved a construction boon for

Canterbury and a huge part of that is roads.

The southern motorway is the latest giant-sized project and the

aggregate needed is a stone’s throw from where the roading work

is. That means cheap transport costs for the quarry companies.

The problem is there is another issue: The people that live

New Darfield Four Square on way

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A MAJOR redevelopment of

the Darfield Four Square has

been given the green light.

A new Four Square

supermarket is planned, along

with a cafe and retail spaces,

on the corner of South Tce and

McMillan St.

While the application was

made by Foodstuffs South

Island Ltd, the redevelopment

is being

undertaken by

Darfield Four

Square owner/


Kelvin and

Delwyn Taege.


John Morten

has assisted

the Taeges

with the

purchase of the land from the

district council which adjoins

the existing Four Square.

Foodstuffs property and retail

development general manager

Roger Davidson said it

will continue to assist the

owners through the consent

and construction stages. Mr

Taege would not comment on

the development.

The application was approved

by the district council

earlier this month.

NEW: How the Darfield Four Square will look after a major redevelopment.

The development will be

undertaken in two stages, with

the existing building set to be

demolished at the completion

of stage one. A construction

timeline is yet to be established.

Mr Davidson said the building

consent documents are

being compiled. A district

council report said the current

Four Square building does not

provide enough space to operate


But Mr Davidson said

even with Darfield’s

anticipated population

growth, there would not be

sufficient demand to sustain

a New World or Pak’nSave

supermarket. “The expanded

and improved Four Square

was the best way forward,”

he said. The population in

Darfield is expected to grow to

3629 by 2025. The 9669m 2 site

will contain a 160m 2 cafe and

two retail buildings. The new

Four Square will cover a floor

area of 1109m 2 .

The development is expected

to generate more than 250 vehicle

movements per day and

126 car parks will be provided

on completion of stage two.

Foodstuffs is focusing on

a resilience strategy for food

distribution in case of natural

disasters. Mr Davidson said

Darfield needed the upgrade

because of its rural location

and susceptibility to winter

snow storms.

The supermarket will feature

generator plugs so generators

can be used to save good in an

will be a significant project in

‘Pud’ bows out after 40 years

Allan ‘Pud’ Fletcher has

been honoured after

40 years of service

with the Springfield

Volunteer Fire Brigade.

Georgia O’Connor-

Harding reports

THE 79-YEAR-OLD first joined

the Fire Service in 1977 and

remained in active service until

December 31 when he officially


Mr Fletcher, also known

as ‘Pud’ Fletcher, first joined

after his wife Jo was rushed to

Christchurch Hospital when she

collapsed from an asthma attack.

He said the Springfield

community was “marvellous” to

his wife while she remained in

hospital for about a week with

residents bringing items such

as nightgowns, facecloths and

towels to Jo.

He said Springfield School

in particular did a lot for Jo,

who was a former secretary at

the school. The children sent

bunches of flowers, basket

of fruits and cards while the

teachers travelled to visit her.

Mr Fletcher said he wanted

to find a way to give back to the

community. “I thought so hard –

‘what am I going to do, what am

I going to do’, so I decided to join

the fire brigade,” he said.

About 40 people attended a

celebration at the Springfield

Fire Station recently where Mr

Fletcher was presented a blazer,

fire jacket, shield and certificate

in recognition of his work.

After working at the AA

retire last year and move with his

wife to Geraldine.

the intersection of Winchester-

early last year.

Mr Fletcher said they were

driving towards Winchester

at 90km/h when the vehicle

crashed into a campervan which

was pulling out of Coach Rd.

The campervan rolled and

landed on the passenger side,

but Mr Fletcher said the two

Germans inside were okay.

“It affected our lives quite

badly. I lost some of my balance,

affecting my nerve system. My

wife ended up in hospital getting

pneumonia and nearly died,” he


She developed severe

pneumonia about five months

after the accident. But Mr

John Reid

From cricket grounds around the world

Former international left hand batsman turned

teacher, John Fulton Reid, 61, now works for

the district council overseeing its major capital

expenditure projects. He chats with Andrew King

about upcoming developments in the district, his

undying love for Auckland sports teams and who he

hit his only international test six against

Hi, John tell me about your

work for the district council?

My official title is major

projects property manager, which

means I oversee the delivery

of the big projects around the

district. It is mainly buildings,

community centres, parks and

reserves. I have been doing it for

the past three-odd years.

That would keep you busy;

what are you currently working


Foster Park is the big one

at the moment, we have been

working on that for the past three

years. We have put in playing

fields, hockey turf, a brand new

playground. Now we are about

to finish the rugby and softball


What’s in the pipeline?

We are working on the new

West Melton Community Centre

and Tai Tapu Community Centre

in Rhodes Park. There are quite a

few other smaller projects on the

go as well.

So what got you into the


I didn’t have a background in

this kind of things at all. I like

doing jobs where I have to learn

and adapt. I have been in sports

management for about 30-odd

years with New Zealand Cricket

and Auckland Cricket, as well

as Sport New Zealand. I have

lived in Rolleston since I moved

down in the mid-90s, and the

council called me up and asked

me to help out on a project a

few years ago and it snowballed

from there. I really like working

in the community and making

a meaningful contribution and

adding value.

Was it your involvement

with New Zealand Cricket that

GIVING BACK: John Reid is now overseeing projects such as the revamp of

Foster Park as major projects property manager for the district council.


relocated you to the mainland?

Yes, I was there for about 10

years after I moved down here

in the mid-90s. I was the cricket

operations manager, reporting to

the chief executive on all kinds of

things from community cricket

right up to the top-level stuff.

For example, I was involved in

setting up the facilities and concept

programme out in Lincoln

for developing cricketers.

Tell me about your time as

an international cricketer. I see

you didn’t travel with the side to

the Caribbean in 1984, why was


Yes, I missed that tour, but

it wasn’t the end of my playing

career. I finished up in 1986. I

didn’t go for a number of reasons.

We had just come off a big tour

to Pakistan, and in those days it

was really difficult to play and

provide for the family – I had a

wife and two daughters by then.

I needed a break to get things

established again. My priorities

were around providing for my

family. Playing was enjoyable,

but I also needed to pay the bills.

So I put my education to use and

started to teach at Waitakere


It wasn’t because guys like

Malcolm Marshall, Joel Garner

and Michael Holding were in

the side at the time?

(Laughing) They were an awesome

side at the time. It was a

tough tour. But the real thinking

was around how I balanced my

family life and sport.

Had you played those guys


I was 12th man for a test at

Carisbrook. It was the one where

Michael Holding kicked the

stumps over. (Holding was furious

that New Zealand batsman,

John Parker, was given not out

after Holding was adamant he

was caught behind.) However, I

wasn’t selected for the next test,

which was interesting.

What was it like to stand at

the crease while Holding ran in?

I heard it was one of the most

intimidating sights in cricket at

that time?

Any bowler bowling at that

pace is intimidating. But in reality,

Pakistan’s Imran Khan was

one of the quickest I’ve faced in

my time in international cricket.

The first time I faced him was

in my very first test (Auckland,

February 23, 1979) – it was the

quickest spell I’ve faced in my

life and he was a fine all-rounder.

But the key to the West Indies’

bowling attack was that there was

no respite. Because there were

four of them, two would bowl at

you for an hour then switch. They

could do that all day. ​

You have the second highest

test score by a kiwi at Colombo,

Sri Lanka, behinds Stephen

Fleming’s glorious 274*. Tell me

about that innings?

I guess people say how do you

do it. My strength was around

having a sound technique: defend

well and accumulate. I could

wear sides down. That inning was

spread over three days and it was

very hot. We had a doctor with

us who would pour ice water over

us each drinks break, which we

had two of each session. I had

mental strength back then, but if

I was playing today it would be

a lot different. I mean, if we had

got out to a reverse sweep back

then, that would have earned

you a swift kick up the backside

when you got back into the

dressing room by the captain and

coach, unlike the shots you see

nowadays. But that is how the

game has evolved.

Was it your finest, because

you made six pretty good looking

100s in your 19 test career?

I think the best innings I

played in test cricket, it was 70

odd at Eden Park (74) against

India in the third test during the

1981 series. The pitch was turning

sideways and we lost the toss

and had to field.

to project developments in Selwyn

John Bracewell turned one

square and a few of us batsmen

just put our heads in our hands

thinking this was going to be a

nightmare. John Wright and I

put on a big partnership (148).

I felt I had achieved something

valuable. When you score when

it’s easy it is okay, but when

it is difficult it is more


I see you hit one six in your

international test career – can

you remember who it was


I remember it vividly

(laughing). It was in Pakistan

during the 1984/85 season. We

were playing in Hyderabad.

Back in those days none of the

umpires were from a neutral

country, so the pair in the middle

were under a bit of pressure

from the locals and it was safe to

say things hadn’t gone our way.

John Wright played and missed

at one and was given out after a

half appeal from someone down

at third man. He would have

missed it by a foot. So I had a bit

of built up anger. ​Iqbal Qasim, a

left-armed spinner, came on to

bowl, so I came charging down

the pitch at him in a fit of rage,

first ball and smashed it straight

back over him for six.



19 played, 31 innings,

three not out, 1296

runs, HS 180, average

46.28, six 100s, 2 50s,

133x4s, 1x6 and nine



25 played, 24 innings,

22 not outs, 5650 runs,

HS 180, average 38.17, 11

100s, 29 50s, 116 catches

and 9 stumpings.

Sledging has been a bit of a

highlight recently. What was it

like in your day?

It is fair to say there was

some good-natured banter. My

experience was that sledging

at international level was less

than at club cricket level. The

international players respected

each other and there was a lot

of encouragement for their own


Who was the worst?

No one was really standout for

me, but the Aussies were very

good at it. They thought they

were superior and you had no

right to be there. Very good at

attempting to intimidate. But

we didn’t back down either. I

remember a match where Martin

Crowe was having a stare down

with Craig McDermott and he

[Crowe] was blowing kisses back

at him to show he wasn’t that

The last tour I played was

against Australia, where (Sir)

at the Gabba (Brisbane) and I

was lucky enough to make the

Team to lead Rolleston College

ROLLESTON College has

selected its new student

leadership team.

The team is made up of 35

students who applied and were

nominated by their peers for

two specific leadership roles

– whanau ambassadors and

hauora council leaders.

Four of the students – Ella

Jarvis, Alessandra Ward, Luke

Barratt, and Kate Stevens –

received the inaugural Wero

Award for leadership

Ella said it was a privilege to

be a foundation student at the

new school last year.

“I tried to make the most of

my opportunities in all aspects

of learning and I was awarded

for my efforts,” she said.

Ella wants to challenge herself

more this year, learn more life

skills and develop her netball

ability. “Learning at the college

has been a different experience,

but I have adapted well and

I have learnt in a new way,”

Rejuvenating Mahoe Reserve

Lincoln Envirotown

trustee Sue Jarvis writes

about the working bee at

Mahoe Reserve

THE MAHOE Reserve is a

native regeneration project

started by the Lincoln

Envirotown Trust and Lincoln

High School year 9 students in


It aims to recreate vegetation

similar to the scrub, woodland

and forest which was prevalent

in the area until a few

thousand years ago when the

Waimakariri River changed its

course and came through the

Lincoln area. This explains the

presence of the shingle beds.

The recovering woody

vegetation was destroyed by

fire about 700 years ago and

later by the introduction of

agriculture and a permanent

settlement about 150 years ago.

The plants used in the restoration

are all locally-sourced

to be genetically as close as

possible to the originals. Planting

was started in 2003 by a

large number of high school


Time and money have been

donated by many local people

as well as local and national

organisations. The land is

owned by the district council

which has supported the

reserve for the last few years. It

is now looked after by the local

community and has a management

committee which is a

subcommittee of the Lincoln

Envirotown Trust.

The Mahoe Reserve was

named by school students after

a small tree that would have

existed in this area under canopies

of the original lowland

forest. Knowledge of the species

present has been gained both

from burnt logs that have been

discovered in the quarry and

pollen analysis. The reserve

is situated in an old shingle

pit from which shingle was

extracted for the railway and

roading material.

It then became an unofficial

rubbish tip, and was finally

leased by the Lincoln Golf Club

until it was taken on as a project

by the high school.

The gorse and rubbish had to

be cleared. The original designation

of “shingle pit” has been

changed by the district council

to “reserve” and the district

council now takes responsibility

for the basic maintenance

and provides some funds for

the purchase of plants and

plant guards.

The reserve is a credit to all

the year 9 students who had

the original vision and started

the process and all the students

and other community members

involved since then.

The original students hoped

the plants will have grown into

a young forest by the time they

bring their children to see it

and, in some areas, this has

already happened. Not that, as

far as we know, any children

of the original students have

visited. We still need a lot of

helpers, mainly to keep the

weeds under control, also to

help plant replacements for

trees that died in the flooding a

few years ago.

We also need help to install

plant information plaques

about identifying and providing

info about most of the

species there.

•Working bees are held

on the first Sunday of the

month at 2pm. The latest

was held on Sunday, February

4, when we did a lot of

weeding and made a start

on installing the information

plaques. If you can help, call

Has your dog visited

Dog Park?

Leeston now has its very own dog park – bring your pooch and check it out!

The 1.8 hectare dog park is located in the area of Council land between the entrance to the A&P

Showgrounds and the Ellesmere Heritage Park.

The park opened late last year. It is fully fenced and features dog exercise equipment such as

hurdles, jumps, a balance beam, pole weave, ramps, a tunnel and more. It also features a small

pond and a grooming table.

The project to establish the new park was promoted by the Leeston Community Committee.

Stubble burning season is here

Over the coming weeks you will likely see an increase in the number of stubble burns as the harvest

progresses across the district.

Selwyn district remains in a restricted fire season, meaning that fires need a permit. However, stubble

burning is still allowed during the current fire season.

Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ) has made stubble burning an approved fire in the Selwyn

area. This means that no permit is required for an stubble burn in a restricted fire season provided there

is total compliance with the FENZ rules and Federated Farmers of New Zealand guidelines. Under

Environment Canterbury’s Air Regional Plan, anyone carrying out stubble burning must fill out a smoke

management plan.

Although stubble burning is an approved activity FENZ says that if you’re concerned about any smoke

coming from a fire, you should call 111 and report it.

Some basic safety guidelines which must be observed:

· people must be careful to avoid lighting fires when strong or moderate winds are occurring or are forecast

· all crop stubble fires may only be lit during daylight and must be out by dark

· the fire must be supervised at all times

· a fire break of no less than five metres in place is required around the area to be burned

· suitable equipment must also be available to extinguish a fire

· inform neighbours of the date/time of the stubble burn

How farms are working to reduce

their environmental impact

It’s been a busy time for many Selwyn farms

over the past few months. After a record

breaking dry spell in late 2017, we received

some welcome rain in January. In conditions

like these, irrigation is really important both

for farmers and rural communities but also

for our food supply. Most commercial fruit

and vegetables, wine, grain and some of our

meat and dairy products are grown with

irrigation which helps to reduce price spikes

or food shortages when we don’t get enough


Along with the business of producing food,

local farms are deep into environmental

matters at the moment. 900 Selwyn farms

need to obtain a land use consent to farm,

with just over 500 farms having already

prepared Farm Environment Plans.

The Selwyn Te Waihora catchment

has some of the strictest farming rules in

Canterbury. Consents are required if farms

are above a certain nitrogen discharge

level or are in some designated areas. The

new rules require farms to significantly

reduce their nitrogen losses – for example

dairy farms need to reduce their nitrogen

leaching by 30% by 2022. Nitrogen levels

in groundwater will improve over time as a

result of the changes introduced now.

Groundwater extraction in Selwyn is also

expected to reduce from September when

farms on stage two of Central Plains Water

(CPW) switch from using groundwater

to alpine water. This is also expected to

result in improved flows in groundwater

fed streams like the

Selwyn River. CPW’s

consent was granted

some time ago.

New groundwater

irrigation consents

are prohibited under

the new rules.

Farmers applying

for consents to

farm need to

meet a number of

requirements, with

the preparation of

farm environment

plans being a

key requirement.

Those who use

irrigation have

their water metered

and monitored and need to be using soil

moisture monitoring tools to ensure water is

only applied when needed.

Farmers need to map their farms to

identify features which need protection like

native planting or waterways which need

to be fenced off from stock. Phosphate and

nitrogen losses must be recorded, and actions

put in place to reduce these losses over time.

Farmers also need to minimise erosion and

make sure any effluent is managed according

to regional council rules.

Each farm will have their environment

plan audited by an independent auditor who

reports the results back to Environment

Canterbury. It’s not a one-off process but an

ongoing one with regular audits carried out

in the future. No doubt some farms will do

very well, while others will need to lift their

game. The aim is to achieve continuous

improvement and over time standards will

be lifted so what was acceptable in 2018

won’t be in 2025.

This is a new process so it hasn’t been easy

for farmers to know where to start. If you’ve

put the hard work in to the development

of your plan – well done! You now have a

roadmap in place to sustainable farming

which will benefit everyone.

Don’t let the heat impact your plants

ALTHOUGH WE delight in the

summer heat and sunshine, February

can be a challenging month

for your garden.

The extreme weather, such as

high temperatures, strong winds

and minimal rainfall can have a

big impact.

However, it’s an important

time for harvesting in the home

orchard and vegetable garden so

there is plenty to do.

Keep harvesting those delicious

summer vegetables such

as tomatoes, sweet corn, beans,

lettuce, capsicum, aubergines and

cucumbers. Water plants regularly

to ensure even ripening, and

mulch with compost.

Snip off dead or dying growth

and remove any plants that are

diseased; especially those with

blight, which, unfortunately, cannot

be treated once it takes hold,

and will quickly kill crops like

tomatoes. Remove any vegetable

plants that have cropped and

finished for the season to provide

room for winter vegetables that

can be planted towards the end

of the month, such as broccoli,

brussels sprouts, cabbages and

cauliflower, which will mature in

early winter.

Although it can be a tedious

task, keep dead-heading summer

flowering annuals in posts or

the garden to encourage the last

blooms of the season.

It’s also time to plan for autumn/winter

flowering displays.

Begin sowing seeds of winter

annuals like alyssum, calendulas,

primulas, nemesias, pansies, polyanthus,

stock, violas and wallflowers.

These “potted colour”

varieties will brighten up containers

or parts of the garden that

need a bit of colour during winter.

Late season peaches and plums

are now maturing. After crops

are finished, future-proof with a

light summer prune and thin out

old growth. Reduce the height

of trees to allow for easy picking

next season. Make sure all fruit

trees are well mulched to help

retain soil moisture levels and

reduce weed growth. They can be

fertilised from mid-February as

rain begins to arrive.

Mid to late summer is a tough

time for roses. However, if well

cared for, they will continue

blooming well into autumn,

especially the hardy ‘iceberg’ variety.

Dead head plants regularly,

ensure they have plenty of water

PLANNING AHEAD: Late February is the beginning of the

bulb planting season, get them in now for spring colour. Also

remove any vegetable plants that have cropped and finished

for the season.

and apply mulch.

As temperatures begin to

reduce, begin applying fertiliser at

four to six weekly intervals.

Lawns tend to suffer this

month. They often appear very

dry with brown patches and the

ground can have quite alarming

cracks in places.

Where water is readily available

(and not too expensive), irrigate

regularly in the cooler parts of the

day. Although tempting to start

now, keep any major renovation

or repair work until autumn.

Late February is the beginning

of the bulb planting season so

start thinking about varieties you

would like to grow.

These include anemones, crocus,

daffodils, freesias, hyacinth,

iris, jonquil, Ixia, lachenalias,

muscari, nerines, ranunculus,

tulips and watsonias.

Prepare the soil thoroughly

before planting by adding in

compost to the existing soil.

Bulbs thrive in an open, sunny

position where the soil is friable

and well-drained. Plant them in

clumps to provide an attractive





Your fruit trees will be needing a prune now. This will allow more space

for light to get onto your ripening fruit, as well as getting better airflow

around the plant to reduce diseases spreading.

Strawberries are great, not only do they taste amazing but the more

you pick them the more they will grow! To keep them in good health,

remove any laterals or old leaves that look unhealthy. They will love a

feed of fertiliser too.


Tomato plants will benefit from an even,

regular watering. If you haven’t

done so already, remove any

laterals. These are the long

side-ways growing branches.

Your potatoes will need to be

treated for blight and psyllid, and kept weed-free.

Silver beet, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and lettuce can continue

to be planted out now as the soil temperatures drop.

Four things you MUST do before buying a home

Buying a home is a big deal. It’s likely to be the most expensive thing you buy, and it can be a complicated legal

process. It’s even tougher in a hot market, where there is a lot of competition for a limited number of properties.

It might be tempting to take a few shortcuts, but failing to do things properly could cause more problems later.

Here are our top four tasks for home


1. Research the property

The real estate agent selling the property

acts on behalf of the seller, however they

are also required to tell you everything

they know about the property. They

must respond professionally to all your

enquiries and not withhold any details.

Remember that you still need to do your

own due diligence. That means getting a

title search so you can find out all the facts

about the property’s ownership, boundary

and access, as held by Land Information

New Zealand (LINZ). It’s a good idea to

get a Land Information Memorandum

(LIM), which shows information held

by the local council about the property

and land. For valuable feedback on the

property’s condition, get a report done

by an inspector who has professional

indemnity insurance and carries out their

work in accordance with the New Zealand

Property Inspection Standard. Although

this all costs money, it will save you more

in the long term. Sellers may occasionally

provide some of this information for you.

If this happens, check that it is up-to-date.

2. Get legal advice

Buying property is expensive, and it can

cost even more if something goes wrong.

That’s why it’s important to get legal advice

before you sign anything. A lawyer will

handle all the paperwork involved in the

process, including the title search, and

offer impartial advice. If you don’t have a

lawyer, the New Zealand Law Society can

help you find one at


3. Understand the sale process

There are several methods of buying and

selling property, for example, tender or

auction. It’s important to understand the

process for the property you are buying.

Practices can vary between agencies so

make sure you confirm details with them.

The Home Buyer’s Guide at buyingahome. has more helpful advice.


4. Read the sale and purchase

agreement and understand what it


The sale and purchase agreement is your

contract with the seller. It is crucial to read

it very carefully and get legal advice before

you sign. You can negotiate the terms and

conditions of an agreement, but once you

sign it, there’s no going back.

on buying a property? Check out the

Home Buyers’ Guide at buyingahome. If you still have questions,

call the Real Estate Agents Authority

your home

As most New Zealanders’ homes are

their biggest investments it’s important to

protect them. Good maintenance will:

• Keep your home safe and secure

• Keep you and your family healthy

• Save you money by allowing you to fix

problems before they get bigger

• Protect your financial investment

What’s the best way to

approach maintenance?

Carry out regular preventative

maintenance to prevent some problems

from occurring.

Maintaining your home

Plan ahead for major maintenance tasks.

Be prepared for emergencies – know

where and how the water, gas and power

supplies turn off.


Damp homes are unhealthy and harder

to heat. Combat persistent damp in your

home by:

• Insulating (under the floor, in the

ceiling and walls).

• Ventilating (including extractor fans

in bathrooms and kitchens, opening

windows, using a dehumidifier or forced

ventilation system and keeping vents


• Heating (aim to keep the indoor

temperature at a minimum of 16C).

• Replacing unflued gas heaters with

electric or flued gas heaters.

DIY or professional?

You need to be realistic about your limits.

It is better to hire a tradesperson and

get the job done properly than to make

costly mistakes. By law, some jobs need

to be done by a professional, such as gas,

plumbing, drainage and some electrical

work. Major maintenance matters.

Bathroom trends

Larger bathrooms with room for more

than just to bathe have been a recent trend

in New Zealand while overseas, smaller

practical albeit luxurious areas are now


Master bedrooms with ensuites are

now almost an essential inclusion when

building and it is not unusual for a

second bedroom to have its own ensuite.

Overhead or his and hers shower heads are

another trend proving popular.

Walk-in showers have a strong following

however people are still opting for shower

cubicles with 1,200 and 1,000 square metre

options preferred, and curved cubicles

may be chosen where space is limited or

for smoother lines.

The uptake of black or dark vanities

and baths has not been major with many

people still preferring the standard white

for its fresher look and due to it showing

less splash marks and smears.

The size of the home and number of

occupants including their age range will

influence the capaciousness of a bathroom.

A design chosen from a building company

or influenced by the designer might also

be a factor as will personal preference.

Physically assess the size of a bathroom

on a plan, to determine if it suits your

needs. Think about whether a wider little

room might rob space from another part

of the home like a bedroom and whether it

makes more sense to shift a wall especially

if space elsewhere is tight. Consider the

placement of the main bathroom and

toilet in terms of both living areas and the

bedrooms they will service.

Bathrooms and kitchens add expense

to a build. The more bathrooms, the

higher the cost though having a toilet

with small washbasin may offer privacy

from the family’s bedroom quarters or be

convenient where you are working in the

garage or outdoors and would rather not

traipse dirt through the house. The other

side of the coin is: the more bathrooms,

the more cleaning.

Wall hung soft close toilets are now

popular and easy clean units that fit flush

to the wall, a must. However, high tech

versions which play music or include seat

warmers, deodorisers and air dryers are

taking their time to break into the New

Zealand market. Storage places for towels

and other personal care items are also

something we are seeing.

Elegance and luxury still feature in the

modern bathroom, in the fittings and

accessories. Free standing baths add to

the illusion that this is a place to escape

and feel pampered, a long soak helping

you forget the troubles of the world. On a

practical note, will there be room to easily

clean around the bath?

Carrying the tiling up the walls is now

more common and certainly makes

cleaning easier. We are also seeing more

detail in the tiles with feature panels and

uniquely shaped tiles incorporated to add

a splash of colour or interest. Colour wise,

earthy and monochromatic palettes are

still in vogue.

Take time to visit bathroom suppliers

and showhomes to gather ideas for your

new or renovated little rooms.

Matt and Kim love spending

time outdoors.

So we designed them a home that

maximises their indoor-outdoor flow.

What to ask at

an open home

It’s easy to get carried away when you’re searching through

property listings for the house of your dreams. But if you’re not

careful, home buying can become a nightmare.

“Buying a property is a complex and

potentially stressful process, not least

because it involves such a scary amount

of money,” says Kevin Lampen-Smith,

chief executive at the Real Estate Agents

Authority (REAA).

“It’s smart to do as much as you can to

reduce the risk of unwelcome surprises or

unexpected costs further down the line.”

In the first instance, Lampen-Smith

recommends drawing up a list of questions

to ask about properties you’re interested in.

“Remember that you can ask the real

estate agent anything you like about the

property,” he says. “They are also required

to tell you everything they know and not

withhold any details.”

If you’re not sure what to ask, here’s a

handy list of questions. Open homes can

be busy, so ask the agent if you can talk on

the phone, or send questions via email.

- Have there been any issues with the

property, such as earthquake damage or


- Are there any offers on the property,

or have any contracts been cancelled by

potential buyers?

- How long has it been on the market?

What is the seller’s preferred settlement


- What maintenance, repairs or

improvements have been carried out? Do

these have permits?

- Is there a Land Information

Memorandum (LIM) available or a

building report prepared by an accredited

property surveyor?

- Is the property well-maintained? What

condition are the roof, piles, wiring, and

plumbing in?

- Is the property insulated? If so, to what

degree (eg walls, underfloor, ceiling)?

- Is there any risk of methamphetamine

(P) contamination?

- If there is a body corporate (usually for

apartments), what does that entail?

- Are there any issues with neighbours

or planned developments?

“If you are seriously considering making

an offer, you will need to do your own

research and seek professional advice. It

may well become your home, so you need

to know as much about it as possible to

save unhappy surprises later,” Lampen-

Smith says.

“Knowing the right questions to ask is a

good starting point.”

Making the most of

show home viewing

Looking through show homes is a great way to get ideas for

features and fittings to put into a new home. It can also be helpful

for getting a spatial feel for other aspects of a house design.

Before heading out for a day’s

viewing, conduct an internet search.

identify the locations of show home

villages and the types and sizes of the

various building company’s homes on

display, noting down the square metre

size of each home.

if wanting a high end, architectural

design, focus on the larger homes that

have desirable design features. if at the

entry or middle level of the market,

earmark homes that fit this taking in

other show homes for extra ideas.

allow sufficient time when visiting each

show home, asking for a floor plan that

has room sizes before walking through.

Check also the floor to ceiling height

of the rooms and consider how this feels

and whether you prefer a cosier feel with

the standard ceiling eight of 2.4 metres or

more spaciousness created with a higher

stud or exposed ceiling beams.

if doors and windows are taller than

normal, weigh their effect in creating

a more luxurious and spacious feel,

against potential inconvenience for small

children, cleaning and maintenance.

on entering each room, take account of

how much furniture is in each room and

whether there is sufficient space for the

furniture you will have in the room and

the size needed in a walk-in robe. Look

too, at storage capacity throughout the

home and whether this is adequate.

in the living areas, consider whether a

lounge separated from the family living

room or a true open plan kitchen, dining,

living/lounge area is preferable, and

compare internal kitchens with those that

have natural light.

Look too at the layout of

the kitchen: whether to have

an island sink or breakfast

bar where a newspaper can

be read, and children can

sit and draw or complete

homework; the positioning

of appliances; and how

important having a pantry is.

for the little rooms, equate

space and features desired

with that needed, especially

if the budget needs to be

sharp. it might be nice to

have a large walk-in shower

with double shower heads

but is this just fanciful and

will the extra cleaning annoy you long

term. a laundry in the garage is also more

economical though a separate laundry

may be handier.

Bring the garage size into the equation

also. as these vary considerably, assess

the actual measurements of each garage

viewed comparing this with the space

needed for your motor vehicles and other

items to be stored there. if a good number

of toys will be housed there, it may be

sensible to increase the size of this area of

the home.

By imagining what you need, want and

will have in your new home, you will be in

a better position to confidently choose a

design that works for you.

Dressing your property

up for sale

First impressions count from the

moment potential buyers view a

property from the street to the moment

they walk through the front door.

Weed the garden, cut back unruly

shrubs and prune trees where needed.

Kill off weeds in the lawn, sprinkle grass

seed over bald patches and fertilise the


Indoors, tidy up. Get rid of excess or

bulky furniture, toys, books, hobby items

or fitness equipment and if too many

photos on the wall pack these away so

the home looks roomy.

If there is a gap or a room needs

enhancing, look at what you have. A

piece of furniture might be painted up

or an old leather bound book popped

on the coffee table. Shelves will also add

depth to a narrow space while mirrors

may give the illusion of a larger space. In

entryways, add an easy chair, small table,

bookcase or large vase.

Awkward spaces such as coved ceilings

in attics or upstairs rooms might be

converted into storage shelving and

the room given a purpose as an office,

playroom or extra bedroom so viewers

can see how the room might be used.

Stow possessions neatly in containers,

shelving or tidily in cupboards;

highlighting the storage potential within

the home, ensuring it is clean and tidy

for viewing at any time.

Move the pets outside as not all buyers

will be pet lovers while some may suffer

pet allergies putting them off a house if

they see a pet inside.

If parts of the house look tired,

consider renovating by painting walls,

replacing worn carpet, or modernising

the kitchen, bathroom and toilet;

rooms that should sparkle. Replace

tired cabinetry, or the benches and

cupboard/drawer fronts then update old

toilets, showers or kitchen appliances.

Modernising these rooms can lift the

final selling price.

Use consistent and light paint

colours throughout for balance and

seamlessness, making the house

appear more spacious. An effect that is

increased when walls and curtains share

the same or a similar colour.

Consider the personality and purpose

of a room. Bright colours lift living areas

especially if large and open. However,

Your house is on the market and you hope to get a good

price. While market performance will largely influence this,

presenting your home at its best will help.

bedrooms are suited to calmer softer

colours with just a touch of bold. Layer

bedding or use throws for effect along

with cushions or a stuffed toy in a

children’s room.

With curtaining, smaller patterns or

plain fabrics are the rule for smaller

rooms whereas larger patterns make

spacious areas cosier. If blinds or drapes

are past their best, replace these even if it

is only with neutral cotton curtains. The

effect will be worth it.

Eco-friendly features will also add

value for some buyers though not

universally, however earthy natural

colours and features are popular.

Consider who your target buyers are

likely to be and what will appeal to them.
