Futuro Information cont.

Partial renovations have been undertaken, short of employing a new Gel-coat to allow the new owner to choose their own tint as part of finishing the outside shell. Keep it kiwi and remain white, move to the original prototype blue or adopt any of a number of fantastic hues to give your UFO a stylish finish for the next 50 years!

The hatch door has cables and a garage opener that lowers and raises door. Note: the opener has not been used for a number of years and cannot be guaranteed operational. The door opens and closes however, with relative ease by way of counter-weight attached to cabling.

The internals have been cleared from when it was relocated from New Brighton in 2006. This provides a clean slate from which to work (as shown in the photo gallery) displaying marimekko couches and 'historical' plaques installed around internal surfaces. These will all remain in-situ for new owner to determine aesthetic.

 

Items included in sale: Original Fibreglass Kitchen Bench. There are 2 x 2 seater couch units installed, but there is an additional 2 seater in storage. There are also fibreglass 2 'shelving' wall units as seen in the photo gallery, with an additional 2 in storage. The original custom shaped mattress is stored that the owner may wish to employ or take a pattern from. For future window replacement, there are 2 types of MDF mould/formes to use with a plastics service to re-blow the unique curved windows.

Provenance for this Futuro is comprehensive. Valuable documents are included covering a range of history and topics that invariably inform and educate the new owner, potentially minimising unseen expense that could occur during the process of removal and re-installation.

Documents include: Resource consents for disconnection, building and removal, numerous other quotes & invoices, external & internal maps, historical documents and newspaper clippings and associated media.

A full list will be supplied to interested parties who advance an offer. The vendor will also be available for a period post-sale to provide recommendation and offer any other relevant advice the new owner may require.

Relocation

This 'relocatable home' requires NO disconnection or additional resource consent costs to move to your new home. It has no additional expense that would usually be required to remove this building from a property. The storage company is also the transport company... this UFO is ready-to-fly as soon as the deal is done!

We can prepare relocation estimates to nearly any part of the planet, for serious bidders/offers to consider as part of their due diligence. 

The base/cradle that the Futuro rests on is only in suitable condition for relocation. The destination will need to have a new cradle prepared in advance, but this also allows a creative opportunity for the new owner, to design something spectacular for the new resting place. We have estimates also for replacement of the basic cradle design.
