Hi everyone,

Thanks for visiting our blog.

(日本語訳下にあります)

We have another on-going new Granny flat (minor dwelling) project near Glenfield, Northshore.

New 60m2 Granny Flat Plan

The new building will be located at the backyard of the property and be a rental property.

Actually, having a minor unit is great way to get rental income these day as the average property rental price is going up rapidly in Auckland.

 

Similar to the other new minor unit project, our planning concept is “Comfortable Living for Small Family” so we included following ideas in the plans:

  1. Relatively large and functional open plan kitchen, dinning and lounge for this size of residential building
  2. Large and functional kitchen
  3. Enough Storage (Storage and Wardrobes)
  4. North-facing Lounge and Dinning for plenty of daylight.
  5. Multi-purpose outside deck for hanging up washings, a play spot for kids, outside cooking (BBQ), etc.

Here is the 3D model of the building.

We use the weatherboard cladding which is an authentic material, easy to maintain and quick to build.

The roof is asphalt shingle which is also low-maintenance and quick-to- install material.

Below are interior views

Timber flooring in the LDK and carpet floor in the bedrooms makes a nice contrast between the public and private area in the small home.

Construction

We need Council’s final approval to start construction.

However, we have already demolished the existing structure such as a timber deck, garage, etc. to clear the building site to make sure we can start construction right after the approval is given.

Demolishing the old garage

Demolishing the old deck

These works were done quickly as we have an expert for demolition work in our team.

This guy is our expert.

If you are interested in building a new minor unit like this please feel free to contact us.

Also we can provide:

  1.  free skype consultation services
  2.  free booklets about successful new home build
  3.  fee seminar about new home build

Thanks for reading!


皆さん, こんにちは。

現在NorthshoreのGlenfieldの近くにもう一軒グラニーフラット(Granny Flat / Minor unit)の新築案件が進行しています。

60m2の新築グラニーフラットプラン

この建物は既存の家屋の裏側に賃貸物件として新築されます。

現在のオークランドでは、住宅の家賃価格が上昇しているため、賃貸用グラニーフラット建設はとても良い投資先と言えます。

他のジャパンホームズが手掛けたグラニーフラットと似ていますが、今回のプランも以下にありますように、小規模の家族が快適に暮らせるように設計をしました:

  1. このサイズの住宅のわりに大きくて機能的なオープンプランのLDK
  2. 広く機能的なキッチン
  3. 収納棚(Storage)やワードローブなど十分な収納
  4. 自然光があふれる北向きのLDK
  5. 多用途に使えるデッキ(洗濯ものを干す、子ども達の遊び場、屋外でBBQなどの調理をするなど)

以下は3Dイメージです。

外壁は本物の質感をもつ素材であり、メンテナンスが容易で、迅速な施工が可能なウェザーボード(外装に使う板材)を使用しています。

屋根は同じくメンテナンスが容易で、迅速な施工が可能なアスファルト・シングルです。

以下インテリアイメージです。

LDKのフローリングと寝室のカーペットが、小さな建物の中に公共空間と私的空間のコントラストを作ります。

施工準備

現在のところ、City Councilから工事開始前の最後の認可を待っているところです。

しかし、木材デッキやガレージなどの既存の構造物を解体して、建設現場を承認後すぐ建設を開始できるように準備しています。

このおじさんが、解体工事のエキスパートで、ジャパンホームズ解体チームのリーダーです。

どんどん解体していきます。

デッキも解体していきます。

新築工事やアフターサービス等についてご質問などありましたら、メールまたはフリーダイヤルからお気軽にお問い合わせください。
または、以下の無料サービスもご利用いただけます。
  1. a free skype consulation both in Japanese and English
  2. a free booklet about building a new home
  3. a free New Home Seminar on Saturday April 29

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.
