Hi All,

Lot 2: Laminated Timber Floor is installed

Lot 3: Painting


2 New Homes in Northshore

Solid rocks underground ware found and we could not put foundation concrete piles through the rocks so foundation design needed to be slightly changed.

Then we could continue to do foundation work.

Our foundation builders work very hard, even under rain they dont stop working on site.

Thanks to their hardwork and our engineers’ quick work for foundation design change, site work is going on schedule although we needed to stop the foundation work for some time due to the rocks.

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.
