Old house visit

I visit two house that I build in Japan. Both house were kept in good shape and my customer are still in love with house. It remind me the purpose of doing this job, keeping people happy. The timber frame house need some maintenance on stain, originaly put Sitkenz and I will never use this product. It takes so much work to take old stain off from timber, any product I use, must able to put coat of stain right on top with just gentle soak wash.

This log house was my last work with log building. I spend three years to complete this house that basic settling maintenace were done before I hand the house to customer. 7 feet overhang protect house as I wished without putting any stain. The house looks like a bid temple because of this roof shape. I think these temple roof meant to protect the house from humid and wet climate in Japan.
