The 5 new homes which we have started building late last year are about to be complete soon.
Project 1: A Two Storey 160m2 New Home
This house is designed and built by Japan Homes.
There is a bit difficult time to go through the Building Consent stage due to building over public stormwater and wastewater lines but finally we are reaching Council Final Inspection to finish the whole build work.
Project 2: Subdivision + 2 Storey New Homes
These houses are also designed and built by Japan Homes.
This is a 2 lot subdivision project and our design started for Resource Consent through EPA to Building Consent.
The driveway is nicely complete after these photos are taken.
Owner is waiting to move in their new homes very soon.
Project 3: Subdivision + 2 Storey New Homes
This is also a subdivision and two new home project designed by another architect.
We have taken the construction part.
The owner is preparing to move in the house very soon.

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.
Please let me know!
