Joy Drury and Hagen Kerr had a grand plan to maximise part of a large section they owned in Vogeltown, Wellington.

They would swap a bit of their abundant native bush for some council reserve to enhance their building platform, then subdivide. Then they would relocate a 37 square-metre tiny house that came from a farm in South Wairarapa, do it up and sell it at a profit.
