Hi All,

Thanks for visiting Japan Homes Blog!!

Central Auckland New Home Project At Finishing Stage

We have a new home project in Central Auckland area that begun last year and going to complete soon next month.

This is a double storey house with a double garage, 5 bedrooms (2 ensuite), 3 bathrooms(2 ensuite), 2 lounges and the total floor area of 240m2.

At the moment the interior painting has been done,

and waterproofing of the bathrooms has also been finished.

Below is our construction schedule (gantt chart).

We are going to start tiling in the bathrooms next week.

Bathroom Tiling Plans

A few weeks before the tiler work begins we prepared the bathroom tiling plans for the tile work for our client to check the tile work details (tile patterns and tile detail) as well as the bathroom fixture positions.

Here are our plans.

Actually, tile patterns are very important for bathrooms.

If tiles are placed neatly your bathroom will look far more beautiful than just putting tiles without any thoughts.

So we normally provide these types of bathroom plans for our clients to discuss how tile patterns should be for their bathrooms.

Once our client confirmed then we pass these to our tiler so that they can know what exactly they have to do.

Below is the example of our tile work for another project.

Thanks a lot for reading!!






















Amazon OkuchiArchitectural Designer
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.
