[Verhaal over het bouwen van een huis]Part 5. The Story of Pouring Rain and Sudden Change of Plan, Even With No Roof

good morning♪

Continuing the story of building a house.
Our house is an imported house, so it’s a two-by-four construction method.
It is a bottom-up method that differs from the traditional Japanese method.
After all, I thought that the traditional Japanese building method was suitable for the climate of Japan (^^;)

thanks forever.

Our house is an imported house, so it is a 2×4 construction method house.
First I made it from the bottom up.
I was working on a wood frame on a betta foundation.

and covered with insulation.
It’s like thick Styrofoam.
The place where there is a hole in the middle is the inspection opening under the floor.

Then the pillars and walls rise. Stand steadily
get up more and more 

The wall of the first floor is ready.

But in this state, heavy rain…! downpour~!

no ceiling
But it kept raining on the wood… I worry and worry.

I went to the site right away on my way home from work.
The rain had stopped, but the floor was soaking wet.
When I asked the foreman, “Will the wood rot?”

When I looked it up, it said structural plywood is fine as long as it dries, even if it gets wet!
are you really okay? ?
… At least I used the broom I had on site to scrape the water with all my might and came back.

The disadvantage of 2×4 houses built from the bottom up is that they are exposed to the rain.
This method is used in North America, so in countries where it doesn’t rain much there should be no problem with this way of building, but in Japan…💦

Well, I’m sure it will be dry by the time I move (probably).
With the conventional Japanese construction method, the roof is built in no time, so you won’t get so wet.
I think the conventional construction method is suitable for a country with a lot of rain.

I haven’t had any problems since living here, of course, but when I saw it in person, it was quite a shock.

Pick yourself up and talk about something else. . .
It was about the time the foundation work was completed.
The LDK looked like this when I applied for construction in May. (South is down)
Change for 
The center of the LDK on the 1st floor is an atrium, with the kitchen on the northwest and the dining table on the southwest.
The living room is very spacious.

It must have been August as I took my kids to a local summer festival.
Suddenly my husband said, “If the dining table is under the atrium, it would be nice to eat.”

I also thought, “Sure, it might be better to have an atrium above the dining room rather than part of the living room.”

But you’re leaving the kitchen, right?
Ah, shouldn’t we move the kitchen east? ?
I’ve already ordered the windows, but if I move, maybe there’s something I can do about it…? ?

While they were talking about something, they both became more and more enthusiastic.

But the foundation work is already done, but I wonder if I can do it…
Do you want to say it in a bad way? ?
So the next day.
I fearfully (because I know I say it’s impossible) told the builders this plan.

The president seems reluctant to say, “I can, but if you move the kitchen to the east side, the dining table and kitchen are fully visible when you enter the LDK, so I don’t recommend it.”
However, we found this “under the atrium dining” to be so great we insisted.

In the end they listened to our wishes and changed our plans (thank you very much).

After change 

Move the kitchen to the east. gradient of water? And the location of the water heater, extending the gas pipeline, correcting the construction application, etc.

Even now I’m glad I chose this position ヾ(´ω`=´ω`)ノ

For a change, the living room becomes the focal point of the home.
The living room is about 12 tatami mats wide, but the kitchen and dining room are narrower.

But in reality, dining is often where families spend time.
Breakfast is the only time my husband spends during the week with his family.
It feels good to have breakfast with the whole family under the bright atrium.

Dining is very active in addition to meals.
The children’s homework and drawings are done on the dining table, and I also use the sewing machine and crafts.

When my friends come to visit, we chat more in the dining room than in the living room.

The dining room is the centerpiece of our home.

The kitchen has become more open than before, but I think that’s a good thing.
Instead of feeling lonely while cooking in the back of the kitchen, you can face your family in the dining room or living room and enjoy cooking while you chat.

I’m really glad I’ve changed.
It was only because we were a small manufacturer that we were able to make such a big change after we created the base.
… I really appreciate it.

Until next time♪
