NZ House & Garden - - HOMES -

The com­mu­nity. We know our neigh­bours. We live in beau­ti­ful, idyl­lic coun­try­side that’s ever-chang­ing with the sea­sons. (Kevin)

Dad was the first dairy farmer in the coun­try to milk a large herd. He had 700 cows here when the av­er­age herd was only 80. He even built a 50-a-side her­ring­bone milk­ing shed, which was un­heard of at the time. (Kevin)

If you don’t think you will love some­thing when you’re 100, don’t buy it. (Kim)

We in­su­lated un­der the floors be­fore lift­ing the car­pets and we have enough heat­ing to stand the Wairarapa win­ters. The to­tara floor­boards, which had been cov­ered for 50 years, are my favourite part of the house. (Kevin)

We love go­ing kayak­ing down the Ruama­hanga River and tak­ing the boys fish­ing out at Tora. (Kim)
