This house is proposed to meet the needs from the local community. A housemaker in Wakayama distinguishes itself from a competitor that manufactures the same houses nationwide regardless of locality, emphasizing the plan, space and materials. By reconstructing components such as dirt floor or hall that have long been used in private or farm houses in Japan, their houses have a simple yet functional design and correspond to various buyers. Inside and outside, or main building and detached building are connected with spacious dirt floor on the plane, and with open ceiling in space, which unifies each room and garden. Natural materials such as trees, soils and burned Cedar boards produced locally in Kishu are used as much as possible, community-based housing is what it is all about.
