Building... your own home
The heart of your home
They say home is where the heart is, and the very
heart of your home must surely be the kitchen.
For many of us the kitchen is where our day-to-
day domestic lives are firmly centred, with comings
and goings, tears and laughter, nurturing and
nourishment all taking place to the sound of a
permanently boiling kettle.
A well established, neatly fitted kitchen can be a
source of great comfort to you and your family, with
many of our earliest memories lodged in that room's
warm, sugary, bowl-licking snug.
Conversely, the kitchen can become one of the
greatest sources of anxiety for a household when it's
not working well, for any one of several reasons.
Ill-fitting cupboards, broken handles, scorched oven
surrounds, noisy ventilators, leaky taps and
insufficient working space can all contribute to a
sense of frustration and despair in this critical
It needn't even be something so obvious as a drawer
that continually falls off its runners, but could instead
be a matter of inharmonious colour schemes or
fading, scratched exteriors and benchtops.
After all, as well as being a much-loved meeting
place for family and friends, there's the important
business of food preparation and cooking to be
attended to, all of which takes its toll on your culinary
People are frequently put off refurbishing or
replacing their kitchen due to the perceived high
cost of carrying out such a project.
You don't have to take out a small mortgage to work
a small miracle in this most important of rooms,
If your kitchen complaints are superficial: say colour,
fixture or work surface related for example, then a
superficial solution may be in order.
A skilled joiner or kitchen specialist is more than
capable of working up new benchtops, doors and
other superficial fittings that can transform your
kitchen from misery to ecstasy in a short and
straightforward space of time.
Take a little time to think about the simple steps you
could take to improve your kitchen happiness this
summer, and get to the heart of the matter.
Now is the time to build
With all the doom and gloom in the press
about money lately, you could be forgiven for
padlocking your wallet, sticking it in a chest
and burying it in the garden.
Truth be told, however, hard times
can bring opportunity for the
canny consumer, as struggling
retailers and service providers start to
reduce prices and experience
increased availability to provide those
very services for you.
So perhaps, far from battening down
the hatches and throwing away the
key, now is rather the time to dig out
your reading specs and begin poring
the pages of the increasingly desperate
discount mail that makes its
way into your letterbox with
Have you tried and tried
again to find a suitable
builder, plumber or other
tradesman to carry out your
renovation or building project
over the past few years?
Well now is the time to try
once more and likely get
satisfaction at last, as com-
mercial projects go on ice,

Consider this also.
There's a long and noble tradition of
thriftiness among New Zealanders,
none of which has been forgotten
during the recent times of relative
affluence -- just ask your grandparents.
So why not reappraise that DIY project
