Hi there,

We had a very good study meeting for our newcomer builders and site manager last month

They had only little experience in these types of field but are very motivated to learn anything related to their work.

Our company provides study meeting for them to understand our company policy and to increase their levels of skill and knowledge.

Study Meeting

Company director Mickey provided lecture for these freshmen at our showhome in Papatoetoe.

The lecture included

  • Outline of Company’s Aim, Policy and Business
  • Basics of Builder Work
  • Basics of Site Mangement
  • Site Safety
  • Etc.

The most important thing we shared during the lecture was the company’s aim and policy.

Our aim is to contribute to NZ society by providing comfortable and affordable homes.

Our policy is to pursue our aim by “Doing Fast”, “Organising (always tidying up around you & keeping your thoughts & mind clear”) and “Providing Good Proposals” in happy and smart manners.

These are much more important to learn than just learning skills and knowledge.


We also studied about builder work and site management.

Thanks to Youtube, there are many cool video clips that help us understand their basics like these below.

Watch this video on YouTube.

And studied site safety as well.

These are very good video clips that are interesting and easy to understand.

I would recommend you watch these if you are interested in building homes.


Below are a copy of some of the notes that we had at the meetings.


We provide regular study meetings for our staff to keep improve their skills, knowledge and work attitudes.

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.
