Good morning everyone

We Japan Homes always clean and tidy up our sites because this is a part of the Japanese carpentry tradition.



We do because this make it safe.

The untidy site with lots of rubbish and materials scattering over a site is sometimes very dangerous.

You may cut your hand by a nail coming out of a timber piece left on the floor, or stumble on a concrete block, or anything can happen.

The tidy site is easier for all workers to work and can save time for site work (save their cost as well!!).

Also importantly it looks good to our clients and neigbours.

We have professional cleaning guys who regularly come to clean up our sites to make sure all sites are clean and tidy all time.

One day a flooring material delivery guy came to one of our site and said “this is the best site I have ever been”

“Why is it?” I said.

“Because this site is the cleanest and most tidy”.


Thanks for reading.

Qualification: Degree of Architecture Studies and Graduate Diploma of Psychology (University Of Auckland) ; 2nd Grade Cad Technician (Japan)
Family: Extremely lovely wife, wonderfully kind mother in low, awesomely hardworking chickens, surprisingly lazy cat and unbelievably naughty dog.

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.
