Good day everyone!!

We have a renovation project in Northshore and our client wants to install a modern fireplace in the lounge so we have prepared a fireplace plan.

(日本語訳下にあります)

Type Of Fireplace To Install

Here is the type of fireplace we are thinking to install.

That has a stylish modern look and is operated by GAS.

What is good is you can see actual fire that looks like burning wood logs.

The owner wants to install it in a new box wall and also put a TV above the fireplace on the wall like this:

And build a bench seat on one side of the wall.

That looks lovely, isnt it?

Fireplace Plan

These types of fireplace are safe to install and use but there are certain regulations to follow when install.

So we carefully checked these regulations with the manufacturer and made a detailed plan for the box wall to make sure everything is fine to install the fireplace .

(Detailed Box Wall Framing Plan)

We are finalising the plan at the moment.

These detailed plans are useful to check if it follows all the regulations as well as to make builder’s work easy.

If all the detail is clear builder can quickly and easy build.

A fireplace is good to have in your home because in winter or cold days it can make your home warm and people tend to gather around a fireplace that facilitates communication in your family.  The fireplace will be the centre of your home.

So if you thinking to renovate your home it may be nice to think about it.

Thanks for reading.


こんにちは!

Northshoreで住宅の改装工事が進行中ですが、リビングルームに新しいモダンな暖炉を設置したいと考えています。

設置予定の暖炉

以下のような暖炉を設置しようと考えています。

ガスで燃焼するタイプです。

安全で、とてもスタイリッシュなデザインですし、実際に木が燃えているような炎がでます。

下の写真のように、施主さんは、1.5m幅の張り出し壁をつくり、下部に暖炉を設置して、その上に大型TVを設置したいと考えています。

そして、壁の片側にベンチを設置します。

とても素敵な案ですね!

暖炉プラン

これらのタイプの暖炉はとても安全に使用できますが、安全を確保するため設置には一定の規則があります。

私たちは製造業者とこの規則を慎重にチェックし、暖炉を設置するためにすべてが適切であることを確認するために、張り出し壁の詳細な計画を立てました。

現在図面を製造業者と最終確認中です。

これらの詳細な図面は、すべての細部が規則に則っているかを確認したり、大工さんの作業を容易にするのに役立ちます。

すべての詳細が明確であれば、大工さんはすばやく簡単に作業できます。

暖炉があると、冬や寒い日には家を暖かくすることができますし、人は暖炉の周りに集まる傾向があるので、家族のコミュニケーションを促進するという効果があります。

偉大な建築家フランク・ロイド・ライトがいう通り、暖炉は家の中心になります。

もしご自宅の改装や新築を考えているなら、暖炉の設置について検討してみる事をお勧めします。

 

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.
