District’s building growth third fastest in country Selwyn’s runaway building growth is third only to Auckland and Christchurch according to new data. The district council processed 1383 new dwelling consents and 2790 building consent applications in total for the year to June 30. The average time to issue a consent was 12 working days. The only authorities to issue more new dwelling consents over the same time period were Christchurch with 4060 and Auckland with 8899. Statistics New Zealand figures indicate that Selwyn has been New Zealand’s fastest growing district for eight years running. However, the district council appears to have coped well with the pressure of being one of the country’s busiest consenting authorities. The Christchurch City Council received back its building consent accreditation late last year after the Government was forced to step in and appoint Crown manager Doug Martin to

get it back on track. By comparison the district council has just become the first council in New Zealand to be reaccredited as a building consent authority three times without

needing to make any changes to existing consent processing practices or systems. The building consent team was audited in October for the reaccreditation which enables it

to issue building consents. As part of the assessment process, International Accreditation New Zealand routinely require corrective actions, when noncompliance with Government

regulations are identified, or issue strong recommendations about how consent processing systems or methods could be improved. However, the IANZ report found no issues which required corrective actions and made no strong recommendations for Selwyn to improve its processing systems. It also identified Selwyn’s records of processing and inspection decisions, reasons for decisions, and training processes as being of a particularly high standard. District council building manager Ian Butler said: “Our building consent team have put a lot of effort into continuously improving our systems and service for customers and it is a credit to the team that the reaccreditation process has gone so smoothly.” The district council introduced a new online building consent application system in 2013.

Smelly problem aired TOM DOUDNEY

A Rolleston couple have told of sewage including toilet paper, seeping from an unconsented valve on to their property. Lincoln resident Nyki McQueen told Environment Canterbury hearing commissioners of the smelly problem at deliberations for the regional council’s new Air Plan, recently. Mrs McQueen was submitting in opposition to provisions in the plan which would mean the district council can install such valves without having to go through the resource consent process. Two weeks of evidence has been presented to hearing commissioners Sir Graham Panckhurst (above), Jenny Simpson and Yvette Couch-Lewis, with a third week to commence on Monday. Under current rules, residents officially have the chance to object to the valves being installed. But it was revealed last year that ECan had not been enforcing the requirement for resource consent.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: A valve of the type that the McQueens and Whitefields have complained about. These would not need resource consent under proposed changes to ECan’s Air Plan.

Rolleston residents Maree and Barry Whitefield told the Selwyn Times they had experienced a similar smelly experience. The valve outside their Brookside Ave, Rolleston property has also leaked large puddles of raw sewage over the footpath and into their garden, in the past. This included toilet paper on

the ground and hanging out of the vent and their garden soil had been regularly wet from the sewage. The valve had been installed in 2004 or 2005 and the Whitefields have lived on their property for about 12 years. Mrs Whitefield said the valve was turned off for perhaps two

years after they went to talk to the district council about the matter. A staff member there had told them that a number of other residents had also contacted them about the valve. However, it had been turned on again about six months ago and while no sewage or toilet paper had leaked out so far, it frequently produced foul odours. She wasn’t happy that ECan was changing the rules so that resource consent would not be required. “We would like to see them gone, they are horrible things,” she said. ECan director resource management Kim Drummond said the issue had been investigated and while it was acknowledged there may have been issues in the past, the matter had only recently been reported. “The investigation found there were no immediate issues that need to be addressed other than continuing regular maintenance,” he said. District council asset manager water services Murray England said Sicon routinely checked and maintained the valves.

CHILEAN NEEDLE GRASS Environment Canterbury is urging all those in rural areas to be on the lookout for chilean needle grass this spring and summer. November and December is the best time to spot the plant pest due to it being ungrazed by stock and its purple seed heads standing out among other pasture. Chilean needle grass currently infests 350ha on 14 properties in North Canterbury. However, more than half of Canterbury is climatically suitable for its growth.

TOM DOUDNEY

A private collection of memorabilia will be part of a tour of decorated homes and gardens around the Darfield area this month. The ‘Christmas Trail’ will feature six homes and two gardens in Darfield, Kirwee and Waddington. It is the third time the fundraising event has been run by the Friends of Darfield Hospital, with previous tours having taken place in 2012 and 2013. The Waddington property,

owned by Jim and Dee Nunan is a former parsonage, with the memorabilia collection and the garden both being features of the tour. The collection includes everything from photographs of historic trains and railways, to kitchenware and jewellery with some items dating to the early 1900s. The collection of memorabilia includes miniature ornaments and photographs from ... Friends of Darfield Hospital chairman Brian Davidson said

that event had been very successful, raising $6500 to provide a gazebo for hospital grounds, which was installed about three weeks ago.

Mr Davidson said the hospital was one of the area’s most valuable assets. “Many local residents have had connections with the hospital and

indeed some were born there,” he said. The Christmas Trail will take place on November 29, 11am5pm, with afternoon tea to be offered at one of the Darfield properties. • Tickets cost $10 for adults, under-16s are free with an adult. They can be bought from Darfield Garden Centre, The Sewing Room or Mason’s Drapery. The tickets include a map and details of the trail. Properties may be visited in any order.

Bid to beautify railway station dealt blow TOM DOUDNEY

A project to beautify Rolleston Railway Station has been dealt a blow with KiwiRail confirming the earthquake-damaged building was ‘unsafe’ and would remain off limits for the foreseeable future. Selwyn Central Community Board chairwoman Diane Chesmar said the news was not unexpected but it was disappointing how long it had taken KiwiRail to produce the report. “We had an independent person look at it so we knew it was not in good repair but we had to wait to get [the news] from KiwiRail who haven’t been that forthcoming.” It had initially been expected by the middle of last year. A meeting will be held at the end of this month with

sponsors and those with an interest in the project to discuss a way forward. The project group is looking at planter boxes on the platform made of sleepers and has asked KiwiRail to clean the platform. Other ideas are for a water wheel to be placed on the platform and interpretation panels created. KiwiRail’s property team is expected to consider options of improving the platform as well as providing railway sleepers to create planter boxes. Community board members have suggested that the Rolleston Men’s Shed could have involvement in making the planter boxes. Mrs Chesmar said KiwiRail was expected to supply a list of what could and could not be done with the building in future and this would be DISAPPOINTED: Selwyn Central Community Board Chair Diane Chesmar, left, discussed at the meeting. and board secretary Kate Anderson at Rolleston Railway Station.

Terrace Downs top Demolition planned for historic golf hotel in country Malvern County Council offices BY TOM DOUDNEY

PICTURESQUE: The Terrace Downs Resort, near Windwhistle, has won Best Golf Hotel 2015 for New Zealand at the annual World Golf Awards held in Algarve, Portugal. General manager Koji Kawamata said it was a great honour to win the award. “We are all very proud that our hard work has been recognised at this level.” Inset: Host Steve Rider presents the award to Mr Kawamata.

Darfield may be set to lose a piece of its history. The former Malvern County Council offices were damaged in the September 2010 earthquake and are expected to be demolished. The Malvern County Council was amalgamated with Ellesmere and part of Paparua counties in 1989 to form the Selwyn District Council. The building, which sits on Department of Conservation land on North Tce is now owned by St John. It has not been used since the earthquake. Now that St John Malvern has opened a new base in Bray St, its future has come back into focus. Questions were raised at a recent Darfield Township Committee meeting over whether it might be possible to retain the building. Malvern Community Board member Bob Mugford, also a St John Malvern Area Committee member, said there was some interest in seeing whether this would be possible but it would

stricted because of its potentially unstable nature. Mr Henderson said that St John had considered making some improvements to the building before the earthquake, as it had no hot water, kitchen or access for disabled people. “There was no consideration at that stage to bring it up to new earthquake codes,” he said. “The local committee had put some strengthening beams in the ceiling prior to an internal redecoration in the early 2000s. Had this not been done the building could well have collapsed in the first of the quakes. It also removed the chimneys at that stage to below roof level.” After the earthquakes, engineers had deemed the building to be uneconomic to repair and bring up to the code required so that it could be publicly occupied. “This then resulted in an insurance claim. After some protracted discussion it was agreed that the building was not fit to repair, and insurance was paid out enabling the local committee to move forward and begin the job of finding a new home.”

be a decision for St John’s regional leadership. However, St John communications adviser Ian Henderson appeared to pour cold water on hopes of retaining it. He said that the buildings would only remain on site while St John still had an interest in the land. “Once St John relinquishes an interest, then it will need to remove the improvements (buildings), and return the land to the Crown.” For now, a garage on the land was still being used to store a vehicle until some “minor work” was completed at the Bray St base. A Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority spokeswoman said it had previously issued a Section 51 notice for the building, requiring a structural survey. “This was removed in September last year, as CERA understood it was the owner’s intention to demolish the building.” The building is not occupied and all chattels have been removed except floor coverings and curtains.

Cycle schemes good news for district Spokes Canterbury chairman Don Babe, of Rolleston

At the end of August, Mayor Kelvin Cole attended an occasion at Mona Vale in Christchurch. It was the official opening of the Lincoln to Rolleston cycle path that was held in conjunction with the opening of the first bit of the major cycleways routes in Christchurch. Transport Minister Simon Bridges did the honours and the chief executive of Christchurch City Council spoke on behalf of local residents. These were the second and third cycle paths to be opened under the Government’s Urban Cycleway Fund. One in Palmerston North was first. It was great that a project in Selwyn got included in the Urban Cycle Fund programme, as we usually consider ourselves to be rural. The Lincoln to Rolleston path is narrower than good design principles require but the users spoken to last weekend were all very enthusiastic it is in place. It

SOAP BOX seems any infrastructure is better than none. Meanwhile, Dr Catherine Elliot has joined the recreation and sport team at Lincoln University. Catherine is very keen to see people exercising more and sees cycling as an easy first step. She has just negotiated that three bike-share bicycles will be stationed at the university for use

by anyone. The staff are appreciating that most students are away for summer so they get better access to the bicycles. Catherine is working with the district council on a number of initiatives. One is a bicycle storage facility at Prebbleton so people can bus or drive to Prebbleton then get on their bicycle for the last 7km journey to Lincoln. Cycling there and back three or more times a week has been shown to have great health benefits. Obviously Lincoln residents can cycle to Prebbleton then use the bus to go to the city while those that work in Lincoln can bus to Prebbleton then cycle to Lincoln. It is likely parking will be easier in Prebbleton using council facilities.

Laurie Squires, Hororata The district council voted 8-2 in favour of granting the $8million loan to Central Plains Water. There are 12 elected members on the district council The two who failed to vote are John Morten and Sam Broughton, whom we elected to represent us in the Malvern ward. Could they please tell us why they failed to vote on such an important issue? District councillor Sam Broughton responds I read the submissions and sat through the hearing but decided to step back from the voting process as my parents and brother own shares in Central Plains Water. This could have caused people to have a perception of bias in the decision-making process and confused the district council outcome. Based on the evidence and arguments presented to district council until deliberations, I would have voted in favour of lending the money for design work. If anyone wants to talk to me about this, they can call me on 318 8133 or 027 223 8345. District councillor John Morten responds I was unable to participate in the hearings and deliberations

on the proposed loan because of an overseas family commitment which I had booked weeks before the meeting dates were scheduled. The district council recently decided to scrap the Selwyn Central Community Board at the next election. Board chairwoman Diane Chesmar had voted in support of the recommendation going out to public consultation, prompting fellow board members Alan French and Bruce Russell to call for her to resign. Mrs Chesmar responded by saying she had acted in the best interests of the community and referring to Mr French and Mr Russell as “two old chaps who think it’s a bit of mana” to be on the community board. Former chairwoman Liz Russell writes.

Unlike most councils in New Zealand, the Selwyn District Council has openly opposed community boards in Selwyn for many years so the review committee’s recommendation to scrap the local community board comes as no surprise. The council believes in committees run by volunteers with some council funding instead. And this works in some areas but energetic committed volunteers are hard to find especially in Rolleston and West Melton. These bedsettees are a great choice for guests. Amazing value! Ideal for flats and apartments.

your local Views Little can be achieved by community boards without money and more delegated authority from the council so this has been the problem here. Unless the council changes its stance community boards will never work here. However, councillors will have to work harder to collect information from residents without the presence of board members. Increased numbers of councillors costing ratepayers more may be mooted. I feel disappointed to read about the personal attacks on Bruce Russell (he is no relation) and Alan French whose voluntary work far exceeds any paid work they do for the community board. As chairwoman of the Selwyn Central Community Board for three years and secretary for West Melton committees for four years, I saw Bruce Russell’s massive input into improving recreation, public facilities and safety for West Melton. I also saw community-minded residents taking over under his guidance. Alan French has also worked hard to improve living in Selwyn. He is a strong voice for residents. Although the community board chairwoman has chosen to stay, she should have abstained from voting in my opinion. Her position in the committee was to represent the community board so she did not have the mandate

to vote for removing the Selwyn Central Community Board. Amongst our newcomers there are people who want to see Rolleston grow successfully into a city. Please give your talent and time to improving local government here. • Mrs Chesmar was approached for comment but declined the offer.

All the best to students

Over the next few weeks 17,765 students across Canterbury will sit end-of-year NCEA exams. Our local students have worked hard to prepare for these exams and I congratulate them for their hard work so far. I want every Selwyn teen to leave school with the skills they need to reach their potential. I’m confident our students are capable, and well prepared by our world-class education system. Through the efforts of our hard-working teachers and effective educational policies, school achievement has gone from strength to strength. We’re learning to work better across agencies and to make better use of data to target resources. So far we have established 42 ‘communities of learning’ across the country. This means students will benefit from shared teaching practices and expertise, with schools working alongside each other on shared goals. The Government’s managed network for digital learning is giving students access to fast,

Amy Adams Selwyn MP

reliable internet with uncapped data, web filtering, and network security services. Over 590,000 teachers and students are connected to the network and by the end of this year we expect around 90 per cent of schools to be connected. Learning environments are also important. Several new schools are currently planned or under construction in Selwyn. Meanwhile, many other local schools have benefited from the Government’s multi-million dollar investment in new classrooms to meet roll-growth demand and upgrades to existing facilities. For example, I was at Darfield Primary School recently to celebrate the opening of the school’s recently refurbished senior classroom block. We know the higher the achievement at school, the better the opportunities for further education, employ-

ment, higher wages, and a better standard of living. That’s why the Government set an ambitious target of 85 per cent of all 18-year-olds achieving NCEA Level 2 or an equivalent qualification in 2017. Last year 81.9 per cent of 18-year-olds in Canterbury held a NCEA Level 2 qualification or above. This is an increase of 6.3 percentage points since 2011. These results mean thousands more New Zealand students are leaving school every year equipped with the skills they need to undertake further education or training. Our teachers and principals do a fantastic job and I thank them for their dedication. I have no doubt the hard work of teachers, parents, and students will be reflected in this year’s NCEA results and I would like to wish all our Selwyn students the very best of luck for their exams.

James Ferris

Record knock just the start for South Malvern cricketer James Ferris hit a blistering 119 off 39 deliveries against Oxford in his second match of the season. He spoke to Tom Doudney about that knock, his approach to batting and being a late starter in the sport.

RUN MACHINE: South Malvern batsman James Ferris has been in a rich vein of form over the past two seasons. PHOTO: KAREN CASEY

How did that big knock happen? Were you in a bad mood that day and taking it out on the bowlers? It’s how I play. Sometimes it pays off and I middle everything and other times it doesn’t. It’s just that everything was going my way, really. Tell me about what it felt like while you were out there? Were you seeing the ball like it was a beach ball or what? Nah, I just needed to get it in my slot. I used to play hockey as well so it’s not that I have a really good technique but it’s one that works for me. Do you know where that knock ranks in your club’s records for fastest centuries? I’m not sure. Last year I also got 275 off 93 balls - but I’m pretty sure my fastest was that last century because it was off 34 balls.

My fastest 50 is off 18 balls and I have done that about three or four times now, so I can’t beat it. For the last two seasons running I have had the most runs in the Canterbury Country competition and the performance of the year. I have only played for South Malvern for three seasons [before this one] and my first season wasn’t that great but I have got used to it now. How old are you and what brought you to South Malvern? I just turned 25. I moved out to Sheffield when I got a job at the freezing works. I played in Christchurch before then for Lancaster Park. I asked a guy at the Sheffield pub if he knew anyone who played cricket and funnily enough he did. After the 119, what’s your

next best score this season? We’ve only had a few games but in the first game I got 90 off 40 balls and I got 35 when we were only chasing 80. I think my average is about 130 this season. How many centuries have you scored in your time with South Malvern? Maybe about seven or eight? I’m not sure but it’s a few. How old were you when you started playing cricket? I was about 15. I grew up down south and played age group cricket for Otago but since I moved up here there has been nothing [above club level] really. They haven’t asked me to train with the Canterbury Country team yet. Fifteen seems like a late age to have started a sport that you went on to become quite talented at. I was concentrating on hockey more back then and I thought I would give cricket a go with my mates one day. I enjoyed it and was alright at it so I just kept playing. Are you still playing hockey? I had the last season off, so not at the moment.


SELWYN TIMES

Tuesday November 17 2015

Malvern cricketer Have you done quite well in hockey too? I played for Otago in hockey as well through the age groups. Did you go to any of the Cricket World Cup matches held in New Zealand earlier this year? I was actually involved with running traffic at the events - the car parking and the lane drops and things like that. I work for

a temporary traffic management company called Men at Work. I did get in and see a bit of the cricket though. Apart from sport, what are your hobbies and interests? I work quite a lot. I do 12 hour days and I have a three-and-ahalf-year-old daughter so when I am not working, I spend time with her. That and cricket is basically it.

Darfield opens classrooms TOM DOUDNEY

Darfield Primary School’s senior classroom block has reopened after being refurbished as a modern learning environment. Office manager Kate Brunner said while previously the block had contained four separate classrooms, they would now function as one big collaborative learning space. Walls and ceilings at the school were damaged in the September 2010 earthquake, and repaired for $111,000. Ministry of Education head of infrastructure service Kim Shannon said after those repairs were completed, it was realised that the block needed major renovation work. “We provided $800,000 of funding as the school used the opportunity to upgrade the block to become an innovative learning

environment,” she said. “This involved taking down walls between four classrooms and designing them as flexible spaces. We also upgraded other aspects of the building such as the acoustics, lighting, technology, heating and air quality.” ‘Breakout’ areas were also created to allow children flexibility in where they work. The flexible spaces are designed for teachers

to be able to use the classrooms in a variety of ways, providing different activities for students so they can learn at a level appropriate to their individual development. “The new spaces will also enable teachers to work together; supporting each other with planning and delivering the curriculum, and assessing each child’s progress,” Ms Shannon said.

READY FOR LEARNING: Isaac Wilson, 10, helped Selwyn MP Amy Adams cut the ribbon at the opening of a refurbished classroom block at Darfield Primary School.

Firefighter credits family for world challenge success BY TOM DOUDNEY

Prebbleton cafe up for top award Thyme Cafe in Prebbleton is a regional finalist in the New Zealand Cafe of the Year competition. The cafe, owned by Scott and Alice Fraser, is one of three Christchurch regional finalists in the suburban category, along with White House Black in Halswell and Red Post Cafe in Culverden. Mr Fraser said they were pretty happy to have made the finals. “We know we have got a good cafe and we make great food, we get told that all the time,” he said. “It’s got all the makings of a great cafe and we have been working really hard to get a good reputation as well.” Judges will visit the cafes during the next few weeks and the winners will be announced in December. There is $50,000 worth of products up for grabs for the top cafes in each category.

A Southbridge firefighter set the fastest ever time for a New Zealander competing in the World Firefighter Combat Challenge in Montgomery, Alabama. Steven Maw was part of a team of 12 New Zealanders competing in the event in October. Overall, more than 600 competitors from 14 countries took part in the challenge which involved a series of gruelling tasks such as carrying a hose up six flights of stairs and dragging a dummy for 30m. Mr Maw’s time of 1min 28sec 22 makes him the only Kiwi to have completed the challenge in less than 1min 30sec. His brother and fellow Southbridge firefighter Hamish Maw also competed, achieving a ‘Lion’s Den’ (under 1min 40sec). Steven Maw said watching his brother’s performance had inspired him to his record setting time. “On day two I had run bang on 1min 30sec and I thought to myself ‘I haven’t got another fast run in me.’ Then on finals day, we raced at night and I wasn’t in a good mood to be racing until Hamish got his Lion’s Den. That picked up my mood and I was excited to run, so when I went out there, I felt good and it just went really smooth.”

IN THE FAMILY: From left, Wayne, Steven and Hamish Maw.

The brothers’ father Wayne Maw, also a Southbridge firefighter, recorded a Lions Den over 50 (2min 30sec) time at last year’s event. Together they are the only father and two sons from any country to have shared the feat in the 24 years that the event has been held. This year, all three Maws also competed as a three-man relay team, recording a time of 1min 25sec. This would have been good enough to have won the relay event at this year’s New Zealand Firefighters Combat Challenge but only secured them 68th spot out of 112 teams on the world stage. Other Selwyn residents to achieve success included Lincoln firefighter Amelia Wood, who achieved a Lion’s Den time and Christchurch Airport firefighter Tom Reid. Mr Reid, a Rolleston resident,

was part of a world record setting over 60 tandem team with Canadian firefighter Jacques Breton. However, their record of 1min 55sec 40 was broken the next day by another team and they finished second. Wayne and Steven Maw thanked 5R Solutions Ltd who sponsored their competition gear.

Speedway to feature past race cars

your

Past and present will collide – hopefully not literally – at Ruapuna Speedway on Saturday night. An exhibition by cars and star drivers from days gone by will appear on a programme which also highlights current day racers. Among those scheduled to appear as part of ‘Legends Night’ is 78-year-old Don Cameron, in his vintage stock rod, who was one of the big names at the track in the 1960s. About five years ago, Cameron decided to re-create his famous stock rod, known as the Freddie Flintstone Special, a car he considered the best he had

driven during more than 20 years of racing. Featuring a side-valve Ford V8 engine, the car is likely to rekindle memories for long time fans as will the appearance of several old TQs and Midgets. The event will also feature the first round of the Southern Midget Series with drivers com-

ing from as far away as Dunedin and Nelson to compete. Among those lining up will be Ohoka’s Gary Chadwick who drew first blood at Ruapuna’s opening night when he pipped Southbridge’s Tom Lumsden on the line to win the Midget Car feature.

Batting first, Richmond scored 195/9 in their 45 overs. In response, Halswell started well before losing three wickets for 24 runs. Matt McClintock (47no) and Leighton Johnston (40) then shared a 107 run partnership to steady the innings, Halswell eventually chasing the total down in 35 overs for the loss of four wickets.

DISPATCHED: Lincoln batsman Tom Kingston smashes a shot to mid-wicket, watched by Leeston Southbridge wicketkeeper Jack Macdonald, during a junior cricket match in Lincoln on Saturday.

gardening Rachel Vogan says you should prioritise projects in preparation for summer

Get tough on weeds WITH THE summer months knocking on the door, and the growth of everything in the garden at full speed, it can sometimes be hard to know where to start. To prevent your garden from getting on top of you, prioritise

what urks you the most versus what rewards you the most. A freshly mown lawn can hide a multitude of weedy sins, so if you can’t tackle all the weeds in one go, do the lawns instead. Sweeping up leafy paths and

FRUIT CROPS

Cherries and plums are really starting to plump up now. In some areas the yields are looking exceptional; to maintain them, and to prevent them from shedding too much, water the soil deeply once a week. Codling moth traps should be hung in apple, pear and quince trees. Remove any rootstock shoots from the base of fruit trees, these leafy stems will never produce fruit and take nutrients from the fruit part of the tree.

For something new, try Argyranthemum ‘Beauty Yellow’.

spraying driveway weeds with an almost instant weed spray, is almost instantly gratifying. Hoeing is the quickest way to weed, and if the weeds are small, they can just be left there to fry off in the sun and wilt away.

POTATOES

Spuds growing in buckets should be all tops now – time to get them to focus their energy on producing more under the soil. Do this by adding another layer of vegetable mix or compost to stimulate a heftier harvest. Aim to water them at least twice a week as spuds have a high water content. Mole up potatoes planted out in rows in the garden, and plant out main-crop varieties now. If you forgot to do it at planting time, apply a side dressing of potato fertiliser.

MARGUERITE DAISIES

Marguerite daisies are in flower now and it seems every season new ones appear. Look out for Argyranthemum ‘Beauty Yellow’, it is one of the most Marguerite daisies are cheerful-looking varieties with the ideal for cleanest sunny-yellow blooms and tubs. contrasting citrus-green foliage. As with all marguerite daisies, they are sun lovers. Forget about planting them in the shade, they simply won’t shine. A light trim if they get a bit woolly looking is about all the maintenance they may need. They are perfect for tubs and planter boxes, however most are too big for window boxes and hanging baskets. If yellow isn’t your colour, then look to the clean pink and white varieties, deeper shades of crimson appear from time to time as do two-toned blends.

CUCURBITS & MORE

Courgettes, cucumbers, gherkins and squash can all go in now.These crops will quickly romp away in richly prepared soil, compost, sheep pellets and manure. Watch out for the white powdery mildew, especially on courgettes, pluck off the worst leaves to limit it spreading and spray with a mixture of baking soda and milk. Salad gardens; keep planting new seedlings or sowing seeds in salad beds and plots. Just sprinkling a few seeds every few weeks is enough to keep you going. Try planting up some colourful combinations in tubs and boxes. As long as they get plenty of sun and are planted into good vegetable potting mix, you will be in business. Scarecrows have been around for centuries and not only look good but can play a beneficial role in the garden by deterring birds and invaders. Have fun and add one to your garden this season.

gardening without guesswork Question:

I’m starting my first veggie garden and have a lot of healthy seedlings growing inside. How long should I harden them off before planting them outside and do you have any tips to help them survive the transition?

Answer:

Thanks for your great question Laura! Just a quick explanation for our readers, this process called “hardening off” is used to slowly introduce your seedlings that have been growing inside, to the outside elements. It helps them to better cope with the change of direct sunlight, ranging temperatures, and wind. At this time of the season about 3 to 5 days outside in a sunny spot would be enough to harden off plants before transplanting. The strong sunlight will strengthen the stems and cell walls which will reduce transplant shock. We would suggest that plants are best transplanted in the cooler evenings and then treated to a good watering afterwards. This process will be great for the seedlings you mentioned you had (corn, zucchini, pumpkin, cucumber, tomatoes, rock melon, watermelon and lettuces).

Thanks to laura for her question, we hope you enjoy spending your voucher!

What is transplant shock?

Transplant shock is a term that is used to describe the stresses that can occur on plants that are being transplanted. It includes failure of the plant to root well in the ground, meaning that its chances of survival are reduced. Here are some tips to help reduce stress:  Disturb the roots as little as possible  Bring as much of the roots as possible  Water thoroughly after  Always make sure the root ball stays moist

Thinking of Landscaping? FOR : • Garden Makeovers

TOMATOES

ROSES

Tomatoes should be in the ground sooner rather than later now that all the frosts have passed. When planting, feel free to bury them deeply into the soil, new roots will grow out from the main stem, helping anchor them better into the soil. The exception for this is with grafted tomatoes as the graft needs to stay above the soil. It’s a little late in the season to be sowing seed now, but that’s not a problem as punnets of seedlings are still around and are great value for under $5. If you just want one or two plants, hunt out the grafted ‘SuperToms’, these produce more fruit per plant.

Roses are taking centre stage now. To keep them at their best, water deeply twice a week, and don’t be frightened to trim back any wildlooking plants. Did you know that roses re-bloom in six weeks after pruning? So, if you have a special event coming up over summer and want to ensure the roses are in full bloom, deadhead or lightly prune six weeks prior. Spray on a regular basis to deal with any pest and disease issues.

CABBAGE TREES

Cabbage trees can do with a tidy up as shedded leaves play havoc with the lawnmower. When collecting these, tie them in knots to use as fire lighters next winter. The sweetly perfumed flower spikes should be starting to form, and are delightful when picked, however, the challenge is always getting up the ladder to actually cut them. The seed heads of hellebores are fattening up. If left on the plants, the seeds will sprinkle into the garden, germinating after Christmas.

Pots are suitable for both indoors and outdoors GARDENING IN pots is a spectacularly rewarding and low labour hobby. Instead of battling the elements, treating tired old soil, weeding and digging frantically, you simply tip the prepared perfect potting mix into the container, follow it up with the plants, water and wait. It’s hard to go wrong. You just move the pot around until you’ve found the perfect sunny or shady spot because a container garden is

Summer

portable. You can move it about your home, patio or garden to fill bare spots at any time of year. And best of all, when you move house, you don’t have to leave your cherished garden behind – they all shift with the furniture. Furthermore, container gardens look great anywhere – as hanging baskets on terraces and pergolas, half round containers spilling colour down a wall or fence, or simply sitting on paved areas.

is on the way! Getting prepared for Summer

Mulch!! Yes, this word pops up all the time, but it is a saving grace when it comes to protecting your plants. If you haven’t already got bark on your garden, add a layer of organic compost now. Mix it through your existing soil. Keep the watering up over the next few weeks, then look to add your bark mulch before the heat really fires up. If you have got a thin layer of bark, try and boost it up to a good 10cm, this will help get the best results. If you have already added your bark – well done!

Keep the watering up now to stay ahead of the game. Water is essential for healthy plant growth and development. Establish a good watering routine, ensuring you give your plants a good deep soak every few days rather than a light sprinkling every day. Get rid of those pesky weeds! Not only do they look unsightly, they take up a lot of nutrients and water that your plants need, as well as fight for space. Dedicate time to remove them as soon as they pop up, then the task won’t seem so daunting if you walk out one day and all you see is weeds!

your potatoes to encourage a larger crop. Early spuds like Swift and Rocket may be ready for harvest. Once the crop flowers and the stems begin to wither it indicates the crop is ready. Spuds require plenty of water as the crop begins to develop.  Plant a punnet every couple of weeks to ensure a ready supply. Lettuce seeds germinate readily now. Thin out the rows to allow the plant room to move, the thinned out seedlings can be replanted. Share them with friends and neighbours.  To ensure you have enough juicy lemons, keep the water up to your plants while they are in flower now. Dry lemons are directly related to lack of water as the crop develops over Summer. A layer of mulch works wonders, apply mulch after watering the soil.

Show offering plenty of crowdpleasing events

T

his year marks the 140th running of the Courtenay A&P Show and once again should prove a highlight of the local calendar, with organisers hoping for a good crowd. The show’s theme for 2015 is ‘Lifestyle Block & Boutique Businesses’. Named for its original location, Courtenay, the show was moved to Kirwee within a few years of its launch, and with the township located just 20 minutes from Christchurch, the show offers the opportunity for a great day out in the country for city dwellers this Saturday, November 21. Horses are a key focus of the Courtenay Show, and this year there are 225 entries, slightly down on last year, association secretary Sharon Kellock says. They include entries in the new pinto and gypsy cob section. The overall number of entries for the show is 3000. The dog trials are always popular with visitors to the show, who will be keen to see the two top-placed dogs from Friday’s trials put through their paces in the

District Final Dog Trial. This will take place at approximately 12.30pm, while around the same time the terrier races are sure to create some fun and excitement. The machinery parade at 1pm will be followed by the Grand Parade at 1.30pm. Then from 2.30pm to 6pm the keenly contested show jumping events for hunters and ponies will take place. Once every three years, the Royal Agricultural Society allocates a medal to an entrant in an area of the show, which is different every time. This year, association president Adrienne Begg decided that for a change, it would go to someone with entries in the Shed. “It will be given to the person who gains the most points in at least three sections in the Shed,” Mrs Begg says. Shed exhibits include wine, crafts, art, photography, flowers and vegetables. Entries will be taken on Wednesday, November 18 for the fruit, vegetable, flower and decorated sections. For details, contact Adrienne Begg, phone (03) 3181 897. As usual, the show offers a wide array of

attractions and entertainment for visitors, and this year they include the ‘Lab in a Box’, from the University of Otago, with former Kirwee School pupil Andrew Cridge, one of the university students involved in its development. “This interactive science lab is in a container, which has been refurbished with state-of-the-art equipment. It has been touring the South Island and we are lucky that the visit coincides with our show,” Mrs Kellock says. “Rudd Kleinpaste (the Bug Man) will be at the lab during the show, so it’s well worth a visit for this alone!” The show also once again features the talents of DJ Singh, the Ellesmere

Pipe Band, children’s entertainer Shad Rutherford, and a new exhibit in the President’s Marquee – the Arion Farm Park display. There will be young animals of all descriptions for children to interact with, including ponies, calves, lambs, goat kids, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats and piglets. Admission to the show is free to under16s and $10 for age 16 and over.

A DREAM GARDEN IN THE MAKING

Raised beds make gardening easier.

Brian and Helen survey their garden.

Local resident Helen Coker, who is one of five national finalists in the 2015 New Zealand Gardener of the Year, will hear in December whether she has won the award.

H

er husband Brian nominated her as recognition of her hard work in creating their accessible dream garden. “Helen dug through shingle in forming garden beds and planted numerous trees and shrubs,” explains Brian who was disabled during the 2011 February earthquake.

Regardless of whether Helen wins New Zealand’s top gardener prize, the couple already have the cup in the beautiful garden they impressively created in just over a year on land originally used for grazing horses. They not only have an early Garden of Eden that any gardener would be proud of, but also one that exemplifies how

gardening can be accessible for a person with physical limitations. “We wanted a garden that we could both work in; one that was accessible for Brian whether in his wheelchair or on prosthetics,” explains Helen. They gave this brief to their landscape architect who drew concept plans based on their ideas. Local specialist Shaun McMahon then completed the hard landscaping. “Shaun’s team built the paths, garden beds and laid the lawn, while we did the planting,” explains Brian, who adds that Helen was mainly responsible for the latter. A family flat was also built on the property and Helen’s parents elected to come and live there, also keenly participating in realising the dream garden which incorporates seated areas, water features and a rock garden. Helen and Brian are serious rhododendron growers, and they transplanted many from other properties, giving the garden a more established look. They also have specimen plants and trees of ash, azaleas, camellias, cornuses, ginkgo, kauri, maples and magnolias, with lower growing perennials

and annuals filling the gaps. There is no lip service played to vegetable growing either. Seedlings are propagated in the glasshouse, then planted in raised garden beds close to the kitchen. These provide year-round vegetables with healthy crops of onions, courgettes, root crops, cauliflowers, broccoli, mini cabbages, lettuces, potatoes, bok choy, asparagus and broad beans, with tomatoes already in the glasshouse. Strawberries, rhubarb, raspberries, feijoa and blueberries are planted nearby, while apples, pears and grapes are being trained to espalier over a metal archway that promenades from the house to the garden. Waste is recycled and with horse manure used to provide nutrients to the soil, while thickly layered pea straw suppresses the weeds. Future plans for the garden include additional planter boxes, more planting under the trees to add interest, trellis around the glasshouse and building a pizza oven, with the Cokers planning some leisurely lunches under their shaded archway in the years to come.

t’s been very busy looking after our customers and putting more efficient business systems in place,” says Maxine, who praises her right-hand assistant Lorna for the great job she has done in helping set up a new administrative system for quoting and invoicing clients. Moving forward, Maxine is now turning her attention to the shop layout and the stock she wants to carry, and she is holding a sale with all stock in-store discounted. This includes: fabrics, cushions, bedspreads and the limited range of ready-made curtains carried. With over 30 years’ experience in the industry both in New Zealand and the United Kingdom, Maxine has a high level of expertise in all facets of soft furnishings. She is happy to travel to a client’s home or business to measure and quote with a wide

geographic area serviced, going beyond Selwyn to areas such as North Canterbury. When visiting customers, Maxine takes out samples of fabric according to what customers describe as the colours and fabric types they prefer.

GIFTS AND FLOWERS If looking for gift ideas, it is worth popping into Rolleston Florists and Gifts where the shop is packed with flowers and giftware.

L

ots of new items have just arrived, including Christmas decorations which are already out on display. “Many of our pieces are one-offs, so don’t hesitate if you see something you like,” advises Robyn, who adds that they offer short-term lay-by. Rolleston Florists and Gifts can help with that hard-to-buy-for present, with a range of gifts for all tastes and ages including some for men, such as a novelty wine bottle holder, and a small selection of baby items. There are also ornamental gift boxes ideal for putting together a number of items suited to the person. If wanting Christmas floral displays, then it is best to order early, so the flowers and colours desired can be organised, and the arrangements produced on time. While the traditional colours of Christmas are red, green, gold and a little silver, blue is coming through as a new Christmas colour along with other unique colours, which increase

the potential when designing your Christmas wreathes, floral displays and table centre pieces. Robyn, Angela and Erin at Rolleston Florists and Gifts will create something special for you, translating your ideas into floral arrangements that incorporate your chosen colours and match your décor, Christmas decoration theme and table setting. Flowers also make a great gift, especially for the person who has everything, and the team are only too happy to make an arrangement with flowers and colours to suit the person the gift is for. Alternatively, choose a living gift from the range of miniature roses, gerberas and other flowering plants in pots. Rolleston Florist and Gifts is located in Rolleston Square (shop 15), near The Warehouse. It is open 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, and 9am to 2pm on Saturdays. To order a Christmas floral arrangement, telephone 03 347 1068, and they deliver free of charge in the Rolleston area with a small fee for deliveries elsewhere.

FENCING IN AND ON THE

BOUNDARIES

Fences give privacy and shelter while separating and screening parts of a property.

T

hey provide wind shelter for the garden, safe play areas for children, allocated space for pets, and address the legal requirement to install childproof fencing around pools and spas. While the reason for building a fence and its style will largely be influenced by lifestyle needs and taste, local body bylaws and subdivision covenants must be taken into account. These will depend on the living zone that the property is in. The Selwyn District Council allows property owners choice in determining the

type of fence to be constructed, as long as it meets the district’s fencing rules. Suburban boundary fences are traditionally wooden paling though for properties in residential living zone areas, fences facing the street or a reserve must complement the ‘street scene’ with at least a portion of the property visible. Beautification and a more open landscape are not the only reasons for this. Open fencing is thought to prevent crime, limit tagging and assist visibility for motorists at street corners. has been erected along the walkways and This explains why metal pool type fencing reserves in suburbs, such as Stonebrook and Faringdon in Rolleston. Open fencing bordering reserves can have sections of closed-board fencing. It must be no higher than 1.2 metres and preferably stained in a dark colour. Alternatively, the L a n d S C a p e d e S i g n open fencing can be alternated with shrubs to give privacy. Where at least half the fence is • Consultations • Design Concepts • Planting Plans see-through, the closed fencing or shrubs can be as high as 1.8 metres. Only one fence is to be constructed within five metres of a reserve boundary. Fences built further in can be 1.8 metres high, except for the portion of a side fence that is within three metres of a front boundary. Here, it must be up to one metre in height. Low fences and hedges are also favoured, especially where the plants chosen match P. 329 6229 those in a nearby reserve.

RECYCLING TO CREATE AN INTERESTING OUTDOORS

Old windows are great for glasshouses.

Whether a new or older home, recycling can bring a new lease of life to old furniture and products, while adding interest to the outdoors.

A

ll that might be needed is a quick flick of paint, or the project could involve making something completely different, and many furniture pieces are produced from recycled wood, tin or other materials. A popular trend at present is to convert old pallets into planters, seating, coffee tables and sideboards where pavers might be placed on top. Throw a wooden chest into the mix as a place to store cushions and rest a coffee cup. Faded or terracotta pots and wooden boxes can be painted up for hanging on fences or pergolas, or strategically placed around a deck or paved area. These may need a coat of sealant before using as planters. Those scraps of brightly coloured fabric or tired curtains stashed away in a cupboard may be sewn into large patchwork outside cushions, or given a new lease of life as a table cloth for the exterior dining table. When the lounge furniture is past its

best, reupholster in a serviceable canvas or waterproof fabric, or strip back and replace with wooden slats before painting for an outside seat. Finish the look off with large, brightly coloured cushions. Alternatively, paint the furniture a bright colour and augment with neutral cushions. Colours can be coordinated or a mix of colours thrown together for a vibrant setting. For extra seating, stack away some old-style camp chairs that can be purchased for a song at junk shops and garage sales. Even old floor rugs frayed around the edges can add a cosy touch to a covered outdoor

To gain atmosphere at night, hunt out some old-fashioned lanterns or burn candles in old jars, hung or placed on furniture or the ground though take care when windy. Interesting shelving is easily obtained with old ladders and shelving converted into pot plant stands, while old tins and rubbish bins are great for larger plants, or those that like to take over in the garden, such as lemon balm and Jerusalem artichokes. The garden can also be expanded by growing potatoes in old rubber tyres, stacked up with more soil added as the plants grow. Shelter from the wind need not be expensive. Incorporate rustic materials such as recycled wood, iron and old windows into

Lastly, raised garden beds can be constructed from recycled wood and railway sleepers that will give a rustic look, while recycled bricks are ideal for garden edging and an easy way to lay paths, adding an earthy, natural effect to the garden.

Aurion – big car with a big engine Whereas Toyota has just launched a new generation Camry, its stablemate, the bigengined Aurion, which shares much the same ideology, doesn’t take on such a dramatic change. However, it has had a facelift which will see it through to the end of Australian manufacture in 2017. And the reality is, there was little in the old Aurion that needed refreshing, it has been a solid performer for Toyota, its large car feel and spaciousness has been a lure for those who like six-cylinder engines and aren’t prepared to compromise on performance. In terms of change, the Aurion gets a new grille and bumper, while Sportivo models have garnish changes to enhance a sporty look such as big black wheels. Inside, there’s a lot of extra detail, minor fitment features such as upgraded gauges, rear window blind, audio upgrades, Bluetooth streaming and upgraded trim detailing. The Aurion lands here in three variations, the entry-level model sits at $50,990, while a Sportivo SX6 and ZR6 are priced at $52,490 and $54,990 respectively. The evaluation car was the mid-range model, and it performs as well as it looks.

SPECIFICATIONS

Price: Toyota Aurion Sportivo SX6, $52,490. Dimensions: Length,4855mm; width, 1825mm; height, 1470mm. Configuration: V6 transverse, front-wheel-drive, 3456cc, 200kW, 336Nm, six-speed automatic. Performance: 0-100km/h, 7.1sec.

Other than those changes I’ve just mentioned, the concept of Aurion hasn’t altered. It shares its 3.5-litre engine with a lot of other Toyota and Lexus product and, what’s more, it is a strong engine with high power outputs – 200kW and 336Nm, it is also managed so that efficiency isn’t overly compromised. But given its capacity and strength, it does like to work hard and freely, it will surge under acceleration providing a quick standstill to 100km/h time of 7.1sec. It will also lunge through a highway overtake in 4.8sec, making 120km/h from 80km/h. Response to throttle request is sharp and instant, the power flows evenly through a six-speed automatic gearbox, the only transmission in the range. The gearbox has a manual shift function at the main gearshift lever itself and through steering wheel-mounted paddles, but such is the strength of the engine and the management process which encourages early shifts so that fuel usage isn’t

wasted, I mostly let the transmission change according to its own shift patterns. Toyota claims a 9.3-litre per 100km/h (30mpg) combined cycle average which correlates well with my time with the test car at 10/100km (28mpg). That figure taking into account that I often worked the engine hard, just to feel its surge. At 100km/h, a 7/100km (40mpg) instantaneous figure is available, the engine turning over at just 1650rpm in top gear. Given its performance capability, these figures are rather remarkable. At open road speed the Aurion cruises quietly, it glides through the air with just a slight hum off

the Bridgestone Turanza tyres (225/45 x18in), only on coarse chip seal. It is a happy highway traveller, dispensing the kilometres with ease, and affording the occupants a comfortable, moderately firmed ride. The spring and damper rates have been well engineered so that the Aurion will absorb uneven surfaces without jolting the cabin proper. The suspension will also keep the platform and body structure even when tackling the inevitable twists and turns. Major items of equipment include dual zone climate control, comprehensive trip computer, keyless entry and ignition, and

premium audio with iPod/USB connectivity. For safety there is traction and stability control, complex air bag network, reversing camera, blind spot monitoring and ISOFIX child seat tethers. Just like the Camry, the Aurion provides a pleasing driving experience and a level of comfort which rivals models with far greater pedigree. Every time I think that we might lose great cars like the Aurion when the Australian manufacturing industry shuts down, I can’t help but feel we are losing something traditionally Australasian. Although large car sales have dwindled in recent years thanks to the popularity of sport utility vehicles, it’s been cars like the Aurion and other big Aussie sedans that have paved the way for our desire of big cars and their big engines.

Home transformation

E

ven the most drab or underwhelming home can be made to look amazing, if it’s styled right. Let colour be your friend, and fill your home with things you love that show your personality – an eclectic mismatched look is always eye-catching and interesting. Be passionate about your favourite things no matter how quirky. Here are some tips to help you get colour confident and personal in your own home. DOLLARS AND SENSE Use your budget wisely. An easy way to achieve this is with wallpaper. Starting at well under $100 a roll, it is an affordable way to completely change the look of a room. Wallpaper is hot – the bigger and bolder the design and colour, the better. If you fancy the idea but you aren’t quite convinced about an entire room, then make a statement on one wall or create a panel as wide as you like, using architrave to frame the edges. TRADE UP Go through your entire home and list everything you don’t want on the internet, or get together with some friends and have a group garage sale; your trash is always someone else’s treasure. Use your proceeds to buy what you really want, even if it’s only a deposit. Invest in a few timeless quality pieces that will last the distance, then you can mix in secondhand treasures and bargain buys.

COLOURING IN The most dramatic transformations can come from a tin of paint. It’s easy and affordable; for the cost of a few lattes, you can work miracles. Dated ‘70s wood can become modern chic with a couple of coats in white, and make a dark space feel fresh and much larger. If splashing colour about on the walls scares you, then recover a secondhand chair with a bold colour or pattern, it will accentuate the architectural form. Try collecting a group of items in a single colour family and display them together; use varied tones on different objects for an expressive display. KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL A stylish kitchen need not break the bank. Don’t be afraid of tackling this room because of what you imagine it may cost. If you can’t afford to start from scratch, you may

be able to give your old kitchen a serious makeover with a few easy ideas. Remove the cabinetry doors and spray them a new colour, adding some new handles, or replace that old round-edged bench top with a contemporary square-edged one. Recycle, reuse, re-love. Look at your existing room and decide if what you have could be made better. Virtually, any dining table can be modernised with colourful new chairs. An old sofa or chair may have been inherited from your grandmother, but if it’s a great shape, a simple recovering in a funky fabric can make it a statement piece. A vintage

lamp base can be given a new lease of life with an updated shade, or a couple of coats of gloss to the base in a fabulously bright colour. ART COLLECTOR Think outside the square when it comes to interesting and affordable art. Old bus blinds and advertising posters make graphic statements, or hang a missmatched collection of vintage plates. Photocopy interesting images from your favourite coffee table book such as scenes from old movies or interesting places, or take your own photos of intriguing things like different shaped white Crown Lynn vases.

Poweful difference in simple measures You can make an impact on the amount of energy consumed in your household, save money and the environment.

H

ere are some simple power-saving tips to help stretch your budget a bit further. Some may seem obvious but they can make a big difference to your annual power usage. Turn lights off when you leave a room. lnstead of leaving outside lights on at all times, fit motion sensor lights. Use energy-saving bulbs throughout your home. HEATING Block all draughts, such as unused fire places, door gaps and windows. About 15 to 25 per cent of heat escapes through poorly sealed areas. Choose a heater that suits the space; ask your appliance dealer for the best heater for the room. Make sure your home is well-heated, especially during winter, to avoid dampness, mould and mildew. Consider an environmentally friendly woodburner to heat your home. Turn off heated towel rails at night. LAUNDRY Use cold water for your washes – this will

save you 90 per cent in running costs. Only put a wash through when you have a full load. Hang clothes to dry rather than using a drier – string up a line in the garage or carport, or use a freestanding rack. KITCHEN Buy an energy-efficient refrigerator; a modern model will use 25 per cent less than an older model. Ensure your fridge and freezer doors are well-sealed. Use a lid when heating a pot on the stovetop. Use a microwave as this uses half the electricity as a conventional stove. Run the dishwasher only when you have a full load. FLOOR AND CEILING Insulate your house; lack of insulation can account for 40 to 60 per cent of heat loss. You may be eligible for the Government funded EECA grant. Fit thick carpets with underlay or cork tiles to achieve maximum floor insulation. WINDOWS Fit well-lined curtains; windows can account for 25 to 30 per cent of heat loss.

Close curtains and windows in the evening. HOT WATER Cylinder heat loss from an older hot water cylinder is a common problem in New Zealand homes. Check the label – anything less than an

“A” grade cylinder needs insulation. If the outside feels warm to the touch, you need to fit a wrap. Insulate the first two metres of pipe from the hot water cylinder. Check the thermostat; your water doesn’t need to be any hotter than 60 degrees Celsius.

Only put a wash through when you have a full load. Hang clothes to dry rather than using a drier – string up a line in the garage or carport, or use a freestanding rack.

It’s through this experience that Onyx Homes wants to bring to their customers a better standard of home that is often less than the standard-plan-built homes of their competitors. Onyx believe that everyone is unique, so why settle for a standardplan-home when you can have a purpose-designed plan to suit exactly your lifestyle and for less than a standard plan? A perfect fit! This is testament to our customers who have been amazed at the savings with Onyx, but also hadn’t realised their budget would allow for a such quality spec and design.

Just a few examples of custom designed homes for Onyx Homes clients
