Caring Small Detail Is Important For Good Concrete Work!!
JAPAN HOMES’ BUILD WORK POLICY

Example: Color Options for Timber Floor Polishing

We Japan Homes always want to make sure that our client can confirm finishing quality of our work.
Recently, we have a big renovation project for a classical house in East of Auckland.
Because this house has great natural timber flooring that is a typical characteristic of an old house,
the owner wants to keep the flooring and ask us to polish to revive its authentic quality.

(these stains can be removed later)

Now we have just polished and put on some color stain finishing on the small area of the timber floor on site to make sure that the owner can see the exact finishing quality and colors.
Now the owner can confirm and choose from several color options.
If we wanted to save time We could just show the color samples with ordinary timer pieces which is different from the actual timber flooring, but instead we would like them to see what exactly will happen.

This is a tiny little thing but we believe that is very important for our clients’ satisfaction with our build work.

Thanks for reading!!

JAPAN HOMES’ BUILD WORK POLICY

無垢材フローリングの色を選択する

私たちJapan Homesはいつも、お客さんが施工の仕上りがどのようなものになるか、事前にはっきりと知って頂きたいと思っています。
オークランド東部の進行中の案件で、古いお宅を改装するという工事を行っています。
このお宅には、古い住宅に特有な素晴らしい無垢のフローリングがあり、施主さんはこのフローリングを磨いて綺麗に復活させたいと思っています。

そこで私たちは、既存の床の一部を実際に磨いて、様々な色や仕上のサンプルとしてみました。
こうすれば、施主さんも実際の仕上りが分かるし、このサンプルから好きな色、仕上がりを選んで頂けます。
もし時間や手間を節約しようと思えば、市販の木材に色を塗っただけのものを見せる事もできますが、これだと実際の床とはやはり仕上り具合が若干違いますので、
やはり既存の素材をサンプルにした方が、完全に仕上りが分かります。

こういうことはとても小さなこだわりですが、お客さんの私たちの仕事に対する満足感にとっては、とても重要な事だと思います。
お読み頂きありがとうございました!!

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.
