    Hi Aucklanders!!   Nice to see you again!! Today will be Lucky and Happy sunday with a beautiful weather!!!   This time I continue to talk about setting up the timber pavers in  the Japanese garden at our showhome in Papatoetoe, Auckland.   First we put down weather-resistant heavy timbers (150x30mm) on the ground as the base for the pavers. We poured some concrete on the ground at the bottom of these timbers so that these are firmly supported by the concrete and do not shift. We also carefully leveled these timbers.     Then we begun to place the pavers. Each paver is a rectangle timer that was made by cutting the 150×30 heavy timbers and has a different length from one another. This […]

    Hi all!! How is the beginning of your new year? Hope you have had a wonderful, lucky and happy holiday!!   Previously I talked about setting up around the exterior of the Japan Homes showhome in Papatoetoe.  Now we are making a Japanese garden ourselves and I would like to show how we have been creating it!! We begun with setting up timber pavement on the ground.   First, we cleaned up the ground and placed weedmats to prevent weeds to grow. On these mats we will place pebbles later.   Now we have several old fences at this site and decided to use these as the pavers which will be painted later. As you may see the strong sunlight in this photo the day […]

    Hi All!!! Yesterday the Xmas holidays begun for most of New Zealanders. How is your holiday going? I hope you are enjoying a fantastic happy holiday!!    Today I talk about setting up new fences around our showhome at 31 Atkinson Avenue, Papatoetoe, Auckland. We Japan Homes are builders who do renovations and new homes so often let our partner traders do new fences at our clients property when necessary. However, this showhome is our property and we just had decided to set up the new timber fences ourselves as this is the fastest way. Because of our builders skills with 20 years experience in the home building field in both Japan and New Zealand with the NZ Master Builder qualification the set up was very quick; […]

    Hi Everyone!! Thanks for visiting my blog this time!!! I really hope you guys have a wonderful day!!   As we are Japanese builders we are thinking to design a Modern Japanese Style Home for those who know how comfortable and beautiful these homes are. It is very interesting that both Japanese and New Zealanders love timber houses so I think you may like the Japanese home as well. However, it is also interesting that the concept of the design in Japanese homes is very different from  NZ.   The Design Feature 1: Post & Beam Structure For example, in Japan the structure of the house is mainly supported by posts and beams while in NZ the structure is supported by the wall which consists […]
