My wife put me on to this temporary housing effort for displaced Fukushima residents in Japan.
70 carpenters worked on the project, building 3 structures a day. Everything was made from natural local materials. The goal was to have a whole building to recycle when temporary housing isn’t needed anymore.
The PDF has the best photos, but the YouTube video shows a house in progress. If your Japanese is rusty, the last part of the video is contrasting the wood structures with other less inviting ‘conventional’ options for relief housing.
Japanese stick-framing is sort of a hybrid timber frame approach. Try to spot the skarf-joints in the headers and dado settings in the floor trusses. Gotta love these guys…
