  • Shadow Analysis For New Home Development

      2018/01/28    Council Consent 役所の許認可, New Home 新築, The Way We Work 仕事のこだわり

    Hello everyone, We often do a shadow analysis for our new home development to make sure next door buildings have enough access to sunlight. (日本語訳下にあります) (下面有中文的翻译) Shadow Analysis Normally we study the area of shadows cast by our new building for four key dates through a year, namely Summer Solstice, Winter Solstice, Vernal Equinox (Spring) and Autumnal Equinox (Autumn). Here the analysis example for our new home for Summer Solstice when the sun reaches the highest point in the sky. The shadow covers only a small part of the neighbor building and it can access to a plenty of sunlight so it is all fine and also complied with the Council standard. Below is for Winter Solstice when the sun angle is the lowest in the […]

  • Pursuit Of Fast Services In 2018

  • Summery Of 2017

      2017/12/26    What I feel 自分が感じたこと

    (日本語訳下にあります) (下面有中文的翻译) There have been already 12 years since when I started carpenter’s vocational school, aiming for a carpenter that I have never done in Japan in 2005. At that time I was doing farming and surrounded by 20 cattle while making a lot of vegetables in the middle of a big pasture. The school and the apprenticeship were going smoothly, however, In the Lehman shock of 2008, there were no companies hiring a foreigner with little knowledge and experience like me. In that case, the situation became “There is no choice so I need to make it myself”. Therefore, I founded Japan Homes in 2008. We now are in the end of 2017, the 10th year of business as a milestone. It was a suitable […]

  • Reason Why More And More Small Houses Going To Be Built

      2017/12/03    What I feel 自分が感じたこと

    Hi All, (日本語訳下にあります) What I felt when I came to New Zealand 15 years ago was that Unlike Japan, roads, houses and lands are so large that it seemed to be lots of waste. However, it has been a change in urban living environment in Auckland since then. The Reason More And More Small Houses Being Built There are more and more houses being developed that have these design characters: Narrow in Width but long in Length Narrow yards Focusing more on functionality than looks Narrow space between neighbor houses These are similar to those design characters found in Japanese homes. This change may be due to a lot of immigrants and international funds flowing into New Zealand. As a result, building cost and property prices […]

  • Kotatsu: The Way The Japanese Stay Warm in Winter

      2017/11/26    Interior Design インテリアデザイン, Others その他

    Hi All, Today I am going to describe one of the most loved furniture in Japan in the winter season – KOTATSU. We love Kotastu because it is so warm and comfortable that once we put our legs inside it we cannot leave again!! (日本語訳下にあります) (下面有中文的翻译) Kotatsu The kotatsu consists of a blanket placed between a low table-frame and table-top, with a heat source placed underneath the blanket. With your legs placed under the blanket, someone wearing traditional Japanese clothing would have warm air come through the bottom of their robes and exit around the neck, heating the whole body. (Traditional Hori Gotatsu) By the 17th century, irori (a Japanese traditional fire place) dug into the ground under the floor, called hori-gotatsu, resembled a fixed […]
