New Zealand is home to many great natural wonders. Beautiful open plains, pristine mountain peaks, diverse and unique flora and fauna and some of the most beautiful lakes in the world are right at our doorstep -- just to name a few. But not all of New Zealand’s natural powers are so great. Earthquakes are a part of our life, and a part of our life we need to be prepared for!
Your home is your castle, your fortress, your safe haven. So what happens when the walls start falling down around you? The ceiling caves in? It shifts off its foundations? What happens when your home is no longer keeping you and your family safe?
In this post we explore the concept of creating an earthquake-resistant house and the birth of the vision for a home that protects not only the environment, your health and your finances, but your life when threatened by crisis.
