A building process
July, 2000
I went to Umaji-mura of Kochi that was a production center of Yanasesugi, and I chose the use wood.
September, 2000
We performed temporary assembling in Japan and exposed it again and progressed to France.
November, 2000
I ask a French supplier for only foundation work.
On the basics, the craftmen put up the main body which became panels.
An assembly operation was pushed forward by a hand of the craftsmen whom I made a voyage to by Japan. They assemble the unit that they used Yanase cedar and the Tosa plaster of Kochi for.
I ordered the part of the ditch reed from Germany, but most materials progressed from Japan. With the reed of Lake Biwa-ko, the roof of the house with a reed-thatched roof is made.
