The Real Construction Project, which will start in 2022, will source materials from local forests. Go into the mountains once a month and choose interesting trees that can be used for pillars and beams. I want to cut down trees soon.
Winter is the best season to cut down trees. The air begins to dry and the trees slow down. Logging is done so that the trees do not absorb water.
Leave the leaves intact to allow the moisture contained in the log to evaporate from the leaves. Leave for at least 2-3 months.
・ Weight reduction of logs
・ Facilitates the collection and transportation of timber
・ Reduce transportation costs from mountains to sawmills
・ Keep the color and luster of wood beautiful
・ Prevent the outbreak of pests



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.
