The results have come back, but I haven’t seen much comment yet – so why don’t we start it off? The Department of Building and Housing, when under Shane Jones as a Minister, kicked off a competition to design a small scale affordable home. The competition requirements were quite stringent – not much room for imagination or flair, especially when faced with a very tight budget. Certainly no room for show ponies here. According to the DBH there were 140 entries, and this was whittled down to a few key finalists.
