BUILDING INDUSTRY REMAINS HEALTHY
Figures released in February by the Housing Industry Association show that the fall in total housing finance in December was relatively modest, down only 0.8 percent.
Harley Dale, Senior Economist for the Housing Industry Association, says “The HIA is forecasting only a modest pull-back in housing starts in 2003/4 and 2004/5, in other words a soft landing for the new housing sector.”

“What a lovely surprise” was Mark Mitchell’s response to receiving the Hytile Christmas Hamper. Mark, of Mitchell Roofing in Narre Warren was the lucky winner of the Christmas Hamper filled with goodies and, in true Christmas spirit, says he shared it around.
What a handy TRIMMING TRAY
Graeme Jones, a Hytile customer for the past 28 years has a novel use for the Trimming Tray.
He swears that the best way to relax at the end of a hard week is to fill the Trimming Tray with hot water, add some metho (to the water, that is!) and stick his feet in whilst sitting back with a stubby. Aahhhhh!
