The Kiwi (New Zealand) equivalent of the fibro shack is a batch. The batch became popular in the middle of last century and symbolised the beach holiday lifestyle that was more accessible to the Kiwi middle class. Sometimes called cribs, the batch house was a small shack, often fibro, located out of town and used for weekend getaways. This gorgeous little batch among the overgrown bush and flowers looks like an ideal place to escape the modern world and retreat into a creative space. Take me there ♥
