発寒の家Ⅳ 本日の様子



This is the site of ``Hassamu no ie IV,'' where heavy snow continued for two days and suddenly returned to the depths of winter.


Inside the building, a beautiful staircase with a lightning bolt design was completed by the master carpenter.


The photo shows the stair treads and wall paneling. The thickness of each wall paneling is not uniform. But why does it fit perfectly with the tiered board without any gaps? He casually puts on a cool face as the master carpenter, but...


The contrast between the lively red Japanese pine and the cool wood-wool cement version worked well, but I connected the air supply and exhaust pipes from the ceiling-suspended range hood on the left side of the photo to the opening in the wall on the right side. Of course, the height has been carefully calculated so that it goes under the central beam and does not touch the top of the hanging cabinet on the right.


Additionally, thin-walled steel pipes (spiral ducts) are used for both the supply and exhaust pipes, so if you don't wrap the pipes tightly with insulating material, you will end up with severe condensation after you move in.


Of course, we will discuss this with the electrician to ensure that they do not know where the wires that supply the range hood came from.


That's why...the face-to-face kitchen in the center of the LDK looks nice at first glance, but 90% of what makes it so nice is preparation.

Today is IVE's new album...

北7条の家 本日の様子


This is Kita 7-jo House, where yesterday's heavy snow has cleared up as if it were a lie. Including the tower, it is as tall as a four-story wooden building.


The exterior material is larch wood. These materials are from Tokachi, the hometown of Konno Construction Co., Ltd., which is in charge of the site. Most buildings these days have exteriors made of materials other than wood. I myself have used various materials such as sheet metal, plastering, siding, etc., but before I knew it, wooden exterior walls became the most popular choice.


It's not that I don't like other materials; it's mainly thanks to the deepening awareness of homeowners and local efforts that have made it easier to use wood, but materials that are appropriate for the environmental era have gained civil rights. As an author, I am very happy about this.


Unfortunately... there is still a strong negative image that wood burns and rots, but that is not necessarily the case. Nowadays, additional insulation improves fire resistance, and as a result, the wood exterior has even been certified by the minister as a fire-retardant structure. The research is conducted by Hokusouken (Northern Building Research Institute) in Asahikawa.


For that reason, although it looks like a wooden exterior at first glance, it is actually fireproof. The exterior design allows for safe use even in built-in urban areas.

Due to yesterday's heavy snowfall, more than 1 meter of snow has piled up on the roof.


From the snowy eaves, you can see that the prevailing winter wind blows gently from the back of the screen to the front. By installing a passive ventilation exhaust port on this side (downwind side), you can easily obtain exhaust power from natural energy.


This is a sample of the floor louver. This time, the flooring material is oak wood, so I'm going to use the frame material as a common material to fit it neatly.

In this way, the floor and frame will naturally blend together.

Inside the room, more and more boards are being put up.

Today's cover is high quality!

発寒の家Ⅳ 内外装工事


The construction of ``Hassamu no ie IV'' is progressing energetically with the aim of completing the inspection in February. The exterior is almost complete and the interior flooring is in progress.


The external planks and push edges have also been finished neatly. Today, the sheet metal shop fitted a piece of sheet metal between the windows in the same color as the sash. This creates continuity in the sash and gives it the appearance of a large curtain wall.

It fits perfectly like this. At first glance, does it seem like there are connecting parts like this? You may be tempted to think that, but it is the skill of a craftsman.


Attach a snow stopper to the long eaves in front to prevent snow from falling. The snow stopper shown in the photo is made of resin and will not cause electrical corrosion even when installed on a steel roof. It looks small and smart, so I use it often.


At any given site, as the interior is completed and the partitions are revealed, changes and tweaks will increase. The carpenters and other craftsmen at the site are working with full concentration in preparation for the construction period, so we show them clear and organized change drawings so as not to disturb their concentration, and to ensure that the level of completion after changes is not compromised. Simply put, even if it appears that the original design of the product has simply been changed, the base to which it is installed, the position of lighting fixtures and switches, the position of drain pipes and water supply pipes, and the position of holes to be drilled have all changed relative to each other. If you don't pay close attention to all of these things... after completion, the switch may be in an incomprehensible position, or it may be difficult to use even though it is well made.


This is clarified not only on a flat surface but also on a developed diagram like this. Here, the horizontal dimensions and height of the lighting equipment have changed, so we will simply tell the electrician what has changed in an easy-to-understand manner. Is there anything else I forgot? Check every corner of your head several times.

Today is NMIXX's Lily...it's amazing!
