An elegantly placed indoor statue adds style and brings art into lifelike dimension for your interiors whether it is a gallery wall, formal hallway or table.

Tony Murrell talks with Abbie Jury from the Jury Garden about classical statuary and is there a place for it in New Zealand gardens?

What is considered a reasonable call out fee?

Changes to The Wiring Rules (AS/NZS 3000) will be released in March and are expected to become part of the code in early 2019.

Master Electricians says the onus is on individual electricians, not employers, to get up-to-date with changes to avoid fines, or having to rectify work done after March that doesn't comply with the new rules.

"A member of the public is going to die through non-compliant work, and that's what really scares me," CEO Bernie McLaughlin told Newshub.

Furniture restorations

Furniture is often a long term investment. While repairing and maintaining can be a headache, there is a family owned business that specialises in furniture restoration.

Tony Murrell finds out more from Philip King, owner of Philip King Restorations in Auckland.
