Hi All,


We have a whole house renovation involving re-cladding work in Devonport.

All the new windows have been replaced and weatherboard is just being installed.

Test Paint For Weatherboard Paint

For the owner to decide the paint color for the exterior wall, we have provided test paint for the owner to check.

The owner likes white color but you see in the photo there are several different colors in white.

For all exterior paint work it is always nice to check the real color on the real material as this case to see how the paint color actually looks.

For the interior work we are now putting up plasterboard.

The project would be finished within 2 months.



現在の段階は窓が全て交換され、Weatherboard (外装に使う木板材)の施工をしているところです。

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.
