Why no smaller homes?
We have a housing crisis the authorities tell us. Why then are they building four and five bedroom homes in the subdivision off Racecourse Road, Waiuku? High roofs—mainly black. No grass left for play. 
What happened to building with the lay of the land? Smaller homes, lower roofs, lovely colours. 
Our world is growing in depression; put some colour into homes. 
When working to pay a mortgage, small homes are all that is needed.
Us oldies have made it without all this size increase—children learnt to share and adults were more friendly then.
Let's jazz up the colours around us.
