HI all,

Thanks for your time.

We have a new construction project going on in East of Auckland.


5 Lot New Home Project

This is a 5-New Home construction on subdivision as the below image shows.


The land is subdivided and there will be 5 small but well designed homes on it.

  (Lot 1 Floor Plans)

The civil work has been complete and we Japan Homes have just started to build these new homes at the moment.

The civil contractor and our clients are so nice that the site is perfectly set up for the new home build which makes our work so much easier than otherwise.

Foundation work is going on these days.

Since last year we have had 4 subdivision projects including this, another project is about to start also in East of Auckland and a few more new projects are waiting for us.

From each project we gain experience to improve our system for faster and smoother construction (Kaizen).


I will update the progress of this project later.


Thank you for reading

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.
