Hi All,
How are you doing?
(日本語の文章は下段にあります↓)

Japan Homes’ concept is to provide Comfortble and Affordable homes.
However, our concept is not only limited to our clients but we also want to make everyone feel comfortable in any way; This includes our sub contractors (Subs).

Provide Comfortable Work Space For Subs

To let our subs work comfortably we set up a table, storage box, chairs on each site with which they can work, have a break and meeting with other people.

What makes our way unique is that we often make these furniture using existing old furniture and building materials that is to replace with new ones on renovation site because we have a Japanese spirit of “Mottainai“.

For example, the above table and chairs are made of an old kitchen cabinet which was to be removed.

Below are also made of old materials.

We also provide a hotwater jug, tea, coffee, snacks, cups&plates for our subs.

Most importantly, for those subs who mistakenly forget to bring their own safety gears such as groves, helmets, eye protectors, etc.,  we make sure that each site has these stocks.

This is Japan Homes’ way for our subs to work comfortably and safely on site.

 

Thanks for reading!!

 


皆さん、今日もジャパンホームズのBlogにお越し頂きありがとうございます!

私たちのコンセントはComfortable(快適で)&Affordable(お求めやすく)なお家を提供するという事です。
ただ、私たちはお客さん以外にも、私たちに関わってくれた全ての人に快適さを感じて貰いたいと思っています。
今回は業者さんが、Japan Homesの現場で快適に作業をして頂く為に、私たちが行っている事を紹介致します。

快適な作業空間を提供する

業者さんに快適に作業して頂く為に、通常私たちはテーブル、保管箱、椅子などの家具を各現場に用意しています。

彼らはこのような家具があると、そこで作業をしたり、休憩や打ち合わせをする事が出来ます。
ところで、私たちのユニークなところは、これらの家具を現場で破棄される家具や材料を使って作るところだと思います。
私たちはやっぱり日本人ですので、とにかく「もったいない」という気持ちが働いてしまいます。

例えば下記の写真は、改装をするので破棄しなくてはいけないキッチンのキャビネットを使って作りました。

また、お湯を沸かせるジャグ、お茶、コーヒー、スナック、食器なども現場に用意しています。
そして、一番重要な事ですが、万が一安全装備を忘れてきた業者さんの為に、軍手、アイマスク、ヘルメットなどの装備を各現場に、いつでも誰でも使えるように常備しています。
以上の事がJapan Homesが業者さんに快適に安全に作業して貰う為に行っている事です。

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.
