Hope you have a great day.
We normally decide all finishing details of interior and exterior of the house before construction work begins.
This is because we love quick and smooth construction that makes our client as well as our subs happy!!
EXAMPLE OF FINISHING DETAILS
Here are some of the finishing details of a small extension project that Japan Homes has recently engaged in.
Basically we determine all aspects of the details related to the build work with our client and subbies BEFORE the work begins.
No matter how big or small is the project we always try our best to determine all finishing details because this is the critical point that determines how smoothly the entire project goes.
By doting so we can save the amount of time, cost and labour so that everyone including our client, subbies and ourselves can enjoy the process of the project.
In Japanese carpentry culture there is a saying that “the quality of the entire project is determined 80% by preparation”.
This is our policy for how we work.

I love architecture and design so much that I have been to so many buildings and places around the world such as Sydney Opera House in Sydney, CCTV building in Beijing, Empire State Building in New York, Royal Palace in Bangkok, Houryu-Ji in Nara, etc. However, the residential building attracts me the most. For nearly 10 years I have visited heaps of local and historical homes around New Zealand which I feel the builders’ great workmanship as well as occupants’ life.
From this experience my aim is to design and provide the comfortable and affordable houses with the spirit of Japanese workmanship that people enjoy and improve their quality of life.
In this blog I write my everyday experience of work to show what is a designer’s work and how it goes at Japan Homes.
Any comments or questions are very welcome.
