Log House #2 (Pan Abode) Build Progress / Floor-Plan
||Image 2 of 95
The floorplan and elevations were created by Ushikoshi-san
, an independent log house builder here in Komagane-Shi, based on our back-of-the-envelope drawings. These plans were, in turn, the basis for the detailed blueprints produced by Pan Abode from which the house kit was manufactured. Ushikoshi-san has been our partner and mentor through the whole of the build process.The ground floor is on the left-hand side, with the upper floor to the right. The strangely shaped object to the left of the staircase on the ground floor plan (which looks a bit like a door in the floor with a rounded side to the left) is actually a representation of the planned wood-stove and hearth (and the opening for the chimney can be seen to the left of the staircase on the upper floor drawing).Enclosed areas marked with "ST" are storage (cupboards).
