Lyell Saddle sleepouts | Lyell Range/Radiant Range Conservation Area

Not insulated, not acceptably insect screened, the wind can whistle through between the timber cladding. All rough sawn timber that doesn’t allow proper cleaning.

Yeah, sub-standard accommodation that doesn’t come close to meeting DOCs standards. Or New Zealand’s Building Code.
