About Banzuke
Many pillars and beams are used in the house. They all look the same to me, but are carpenters making mistakes when assembling the materials?
In fact, the symbol “Banzuke” is written on the building materials. Where rows (I/Ro/Ha …) and columns (1/2/3 …) are combined, they are numbered one by one, such as “い一” and “は四”.
Carpenter Takami writes “I/Ro/Ha/Ni/Ho/He/To…” horizontally and “One, two, three …” vertically from the pillar on the left side of the building. Write the number on the front of the material (do not write it on the side or back).
Certainly, with this mark, it seems unlikely that the pillars will be assembled in the wrong place.

We, Suikoushya, plan to establish a school building in Ile de France in 2022. 

This is a project that we want to build with Suikoushya graduates and professional woodworkers. Through this real construction project, Takami would like to pass not only Japanese woodworking techniqs and craftsmanship but also the spirit of the Japanese people involved in making things.
