I hope you all have started the new year with good health. I am so happy and grateful that my blog was read by so many people from all over the world. I’ve had quite a few inquiries and questions from outside of Japan which can mean that my aim to spread the Japanese carpentry to the world has been realising little by little.
I’ll keep my best effort to write about the greatness of Japanese architecture and culture as well as to keep learning others.
A house made with natural materials in Yokohama / 横浜市泉区【自然素材の家】 Part 1
Hello there! We have started a new project; A newly built 2-storey timber frame house. As it is mentioned earlier, we won’t use any “new building materials” *1 such as glued laminated timer, plywood, veneer covering, exterior siding or glass wool.
The work we have been working on since last October has finally come to the end. It is a conversion from a bedroom to a tea ceremony room. (four and a half Tatami size) As the children grew up and left the house, our client decided to have a room for their hobby; Tea ceremony. (Here is the Part 1)
This project is a partial renovation on a 20-year-old wooden house. The client is a middle age couple who have all their children grown up and now have a spare room to use for their hobby, which we are going to convert into a tea ceremony room.
