My Favourite Building
HOME’s youngest subscriber Hunter Harkness – aged nine and a quarter – doesn’t look far for inspiration when building his forts.
“I think Grandma and Grandpa’s house (Ken Crosson’s Titirangi ‘Red House’, which featured in our April/ May 2015 Home of the Year issue) is the perfect house. I wouldn’t change anything about it. It stands out, but lets you see all the trees around it. I like how it’s small but it feels big. It’s a really fun house to play in. I really like the roof deck, because I can make forts up there. It also has lots of little quiet spaces where you can work. The most important thing to Grandma is family. And not wasting things. Auntie Mardie built a house beside Grandma’s. Auntie Mardie is disabled, so she can’t go up the stairs. But she has a lift in her bit and can just wheel across the cool bridge into Grandma’s.”
