The TC3 home solution

Over the weekend I made a point of checking out ‘The Cantabrian’ – a concept home with foundations specifically engineered to perform during seismic activity. Definitely appealing and well worth checking out! It’s on display at 81 Cranford Street, 12 noon – 2.00pm Monday through to Saturday.

In the same vein, last week I had the honour of selling my first post-quake rebuild in North New Brighton – may it be the first of many more!
