The terrace pillars are worth a mention. They were routed out of a left-over reserve log when we discovered that those supplied in the kit were too short. Ushikoshi-san cut the log in two, then took the two halves away with him to finish them in his home workshop one evening. The end result is beautiful and they suit the building much better than the round columns shipped in the kit.
