About Portable Cabins
A portable cabin, is generally a one room building designed and built to be movable, rather than permanently located. A common modern design is sometimes called a modular building, but portable cabins can be different in that they are more often used temporarily and taken away later. Portable buildings (e.g. yurts) have been used since prehistoric times. The most familiar modern type of portable cabins are designed to be carried to or from site on a trailer, and can be manoeuvred into position.
Christchurch lies in Canterbury on the banks of the Avon River and a parklands area that embrace the city centre. Cathedral Square is the central hub of the city and surrounds the now earthquake damaged landmark Anglican cathedral, Christ Church. Agricultural industry has always been the economic core of Christchurch, with much industry based on the surrounding farming country. Other agribusinesses in Christchurch have included malting, seed development and dressing, wool and meat processing, and small biotechnology operations using by-products from meat works. Dairying has grown strongly in the surrounding areas with high world prices for milk products and the use of irrigation to lift grass growth on dry land. Cropping has always been important in the surrounding countryside, and has created processing industries in Christchurch. In recent years a thriving wine industry has sprung up at Waipara, and new horticulture industries such as olive production and processing. Deer farming has led to new processing using antlers for Asian medicine and aphrodisiacs. The high quality local wine in particular has increased the appeal of Canterbury and Christchurch to tourists.
Christchurch region was recently struck by an earthquake with magnitude 7.1,at 4:35 am local time, 4 September 2010. The earthquake occurred at a depth of 10 kilometres (6.2 mi), and despite widespread damage, including liquefaction, there were no fatalities. A large aftershock of magnitude 6.3 occurred on 22 February 2011 at 12:51 pm. It was centred just to the north of Lyttelton, 10 kilometres south east of Christchurch, at a depth of 5 km. Although lower on the magnitude scale than the previous earthquake, the intensity and violence of the ground shaking was measured to be VIII on the MMI, among the strongest ever recorded globally in an urban area. The quake struck on a busy weekday afternoon and resulted in the deaths of 181 people. New Zealand declared it's first National State of Emergency. Many buildings and landmarks were severely damaged, including the iconic 'Shag Rock' and Christchurch Cathedral. In June 2011 Christchurch was again rocked by two more large aftershocks. These resulted in more liquefaction and building damage, but no more lives were lost.
