    Thread: Auckland Property Prices

    I think it's on the up again, but don't think we're talking 20%+ pa gains... think more 3% in line with overall inflation. Wages are on the up (finally), which means people can afford a little more...

    Yeah, bought mine privately. Was no more difficult than buying through an agent, perhaps added about $500 of lawyers fees as they probably do a little more legwork since you're not protected by the...

    Current 18 min commute, 30 minute if the traffic is catastrophic. Remember the days of commuting an hour or more in rush hour, used to gym after work to wait until traffic had died down. Would kill...

    The England Rugby "Rising Sons" series on youtube has been brilliant, following their every week since the World Cup prep started in earnest.

    Take nothing away from England though. In 2015 they had a great squad that was coached wrongly (not poorly) that had the focus on the wrong area of the game. Think 2003 America's Cup when the team NZ...

    Not pedantic when it came to NZ's shoulder shots or about 4 forward passes. Ref had a reasonable game, was pretty fair both ways which is all you can ask for. ABs just got smoked by an England team...

    Thread: World Cup 2019 Thread

    I think the ABs always look good because of their history, because of what's gone before, because of the last 11 years or so as undisputed best in the world. England have been building under Jones,...

    Disagree, I think England have the ability to match the ABs pretty much across the park. Still reckon the ABs are a better side, but only sneak it. When England have been at full strength this last...

    Nice, I just built me an airing cupboard too. Was the old HW cupboard, but now has much more room for airing clothes. Came up a treat :)

    I wouldn't be so confident. Yeah ABs are odds-on favourite, but England have been building quite nicely. In contrast to previous tornaments where England were all about the hype, this time the team...

    Always perplexes me when NZ fans/media get bent out of shape when people don't "respect" the haka by just sitting quietly and listening to it.

    When the ABs play a pacific island they both do their...

    Thread: Anyone else enjoy watching Rocket Lab live streams?

    I worked with Peter Beck back when he was at Industrial Research Limited back in 05-07, back when he was just a good engineer who was obsessed with rockets. Remember seeing a photo he showed me of...

    What did you do Swazi?

    We designed all their launch infrastructure (erector, launcher, strongback etc). Another one of my bits of kit shown in that video above at 5:44

    Depends what you recladding in. Are you recladding because of weaghertightness issues? Straight recladding is probably in the region of 80 to 100k given what similar jobs have cost others. Can go up...

    Call your lawyer or someone who specialises in conveyancing. It's not really something you can DIY.

    Yeah having just done our reno and run a bit of cat 5 and 6 through the place, my only regret is I didn't do a little more of it. Mind you, I've got it basically where I need it, and for the sake of...

    Basically they limit you severely. You will struggle to insure the place, at least you will struggle to get insurance that covers anything related to the addition. For example if a fire starts in the...

    Can vary wildly. Base costs are about 30K I understand for a pretty straightforward low cost shed all built and consented. Have seen cases of it being up to 100k with some due to extra issues or...

    Thread: A thread to discuss what could go wrong with BoJo

    Thing is, he's also bound by Article 50, which hard-codes when the exit must occur. It also states that only the Executive (the PM in this case) can ask for an extension. There's nothing forcing him...

    Either way the UK is still leaving the EU on Oct 31st, deal or no deal. That Boris is so calm despite this shitstorm confirms this.
