    Is it wrong to have a hard-on watching this ?

    1st 2:30 seconds was so cool since you could actually up close SEE what was being worked on, after that its just a blur of people moving around. Nothing to see.

    A few notes for the highly opinionated and equally ignorant ( I mean this in the nicest way possible :).  
    Timber framing is alive and well all over North America. Our joinery is typically less complicated than that of our asian and european counterparts, but that doesn’t make it less of an art, just different paths to a common objective. A lot of companies all over the world, use complex CNC joinery machines to cut the frames off site. That being said, there are plenty of folks still cutting frames by hand with no power tools and even more with just powered hand tools and mallet and chisels. Most of our power tools come from Japan or Germany, and our chisels are from Japan, England and from an american guy that apprenticed in Japan (I think his products are great for our style of cutting).

    I have personally worked on wood frames from the early 1700’s and there are still frames in MA that date from the 1600’s. Wooden houses, paradoxically, are destroyed by either fire or water, stone and masonry by quakes. The temples in Japan mentioned by some commenters, have stood on the same site for over a thousand years, but are not necessarily the same wood, ie they are constantly replacing timbers as necessary, and in fact, plant trees so as to have a ready source to replace them. Wooden houses are like wooden boats, they last longest in the cold dry climates with a lack of major pests like carpenter bees/ants, termites etc.

    We typically erect a major frame in a week or less, usually with a crane and crew of 4-6 craftsmen. A lot of our frames are fastened with pegs and joinery, not nails or bolts. But a lot of companies do use engineered metal fastener systems, it’s all good, different strokes for different folks and adapt to what works best for the situation.

    For those concerned with the sill plates that have checks in them: the wood is being supported by the concrete stem walls for the majority of it’s surface, the timber is being compressed, which even junk wood is good at. So you all can relax its all good. Structural engineers require that timbers be sized to three times the fail rate and most people exceed that by a far margin. The stresses on residential framing are quite minimal, they aren’t boats and seldom encounter dynamic forces other than occasional quake or cyclone. Static forces like snow loads, passive and live loads are easy to calculate and aren’t ever extreme. A lot of timber framers use structural insulated panels (SIPs) on top of the stand alone frames, so the houses are overbuilt for sure.

    The Japanese government does have ( to our sensibilities) a strange system of requiring residential structures to have a short life relatively speaking, just like their auto industry ( they require the replacement of major system components like running gear etc after just a few years so most people just get rid of the cars, and most end up in AUS or south east Asia ). As far as I understand it, it is to foster the financial success of those industries, planned obsolescence if you will.

    Cranes and labor must be free in Japan . It’s a prefab house, Sears sold them 80 years ago .

    This is an Inexpensive, kind of like a store bought house. Not cookie cutter or pre fab but You pick a design and workers follow the drawing using already manufactured/fabricated materials. Not fully a custom home nor 宮大工 level of job. None of the materials would be done using CNC if the temple is what they are building. All hand job(did I just said…? Lol) is completely different from what we are familiar with in the US. since we buy almost 100 yrs old homes all the time and that’s our norm. Japanese don’t move from old house to old house. They like brand new so they build house from scratch using cheaper materials. Not bad material but really cheap. This house probably last 20 -30 yrs. pretty much every time they move they build from scratch so inexpensive to flip/build is very important plus the real estate is insane in jpn so they wanna save building cost.
    It’s far from the Gamble house in Pasadena CA. The Gamble house is a woodwork. Not this one. Unless it’s done by temple builders using 1000 yrs old technique, (then it’ll lasts 100s of years) not much value in it which fits their life style (they really like brand new everything !) Many newly developed houses in Jp looks like IKEA model rooms especially apartments and condo. It’s still impressive speed and precision though..

    The traditional modern pre-frab! Not much soul but it works.

  21. Shannon Smith on January 16, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    Hmmm, didn’t see any "Amazing Woodworking ". Saw some non-pressure treated wood going into place, that was drilled with a super old drill, then a small house was framed quickly by a lot if workers. It sucked



  22. Rob M on January 16, 2019 at 8:43 pm

    Nice skills.



  23. Gheorghe Obada on January 16, 2019 at 8:43 pm

    So no hi-vis needed in Japan?



  24. John McKinley on January 16, 2019 at 8:43 pm

    shame you could not have moved in to show how the joints are



  25. joe jitsu on January 16, 2019 at 8:43 pm

    What’s with all the cranes and people in hard hats? Don’t they have Mexicans in Japan? Mexicans don’t need all that stuff to build a house.

    Parece não ser muito resestente



  27. Tim on January 16, 2019 at 8:44 pm

    Traditional? We call them prefabs.



  28. Alfonso Soriano on January 16, 2019 at 8:44 pm

    it’s a 6 hour job since the video speed is 0.1.



  29. jay sidhu on January 16, 2019 at 8:46 pm

    why dint they stagger the roof sheathing? wouldn’t it be much stronger if they had staggered it?



  30. samnelso on January 16, 2019 at 8:48 pm

    I think folks in the comments have a different interpretation of what "traditional" means. In this context it may just mean "normal" or "standard".



  31. 木下健二 on January 16, 2019 at 8:50 pm

    It’s so humid inJapan.
    Iron easily rusts.

    There are pre-fabricated welded iron frames but it is very expensive.

    Signs and symbols. This film duration. 12:12 equals 3:3. Than the white rabbit and psychedelic intro, it is magic boys, don’t fall for this crap.



  38. Myron Smith on January 16, 2019 at 8:56 pm

    Can’t tell if its amazing if its a 100 feet away



  39. ԋαɳʂ ωolʇ on January 16, 2019 at 8:59 pm

    i gave it a disslike but just because you dont showed the finished traditional wood house 🙂 i love me



  40. diGritz1 on January 16, 2019 at 9:00 pm

    Japanese carpentry woodworking skills? Hardly.

    This not "traditional carpentry". This is an assembly of a house manufactured in a factory. In fact you would have a hard time finding new homes built in a traditional manner. Part of the reason is the average life span of of a residential home, up until a decade ago, has a 30 life expectancy. One of the main reasons for this is the constant revising of building codes. This reflects the fact that every few decades a major disaster occurs and codes are strengthen. Also after around 22 years homes loose all value for tax purposes.

    Bon boulot les gars👍👍👍



  42. Kent Söderström on January 16, 2019 at 9:01 pm

    Why do you comment as it’s a fast built home. I wouldn’ t sleep there. No walls, no windows, no nothing. Just the skeleton. Using wooden springnails, is that the amazing technique? Oh my, you guys haven’t seen much then… 🥺🙄😖



  43. homes24 on January 16, 2019 at 9:03 pm

    Must take ages vs american building. But then again that house will be 100 times more sturdy and sound than any american house and last alot longer



  44. William Chapman on January 16, 2019 at 9:05 pm

    What is the music to this
    video, please?



  45. Ben Rumson on January 16, 2019 at 9:07 pm

  46. stefos nai re on January 16, 2019 at 9:08 pm

    can someone tell me what is the cost of this house i am very curious . from start to finish thank you



  47. Cifra Teh on January 16, 2019 at 9:11 pm

    Деревянные дома говно редкое .во первых дорого во вторых как ни конопать а доме ветер гуляет энерго затратен в третьих тараканов вывести практически невозможно!



  48. Leonardo Engineer on January 16, 2019 at 9:12 pm

    Nobody people use the w.c.



  49. Kirill Grishin on January 16, 2019 at 9:15 pm

    Japanese houses like this are a piece of shit. in winter they are cold, in summer they are hot, sound isolation is absent, no underground floor, and on top of that they are only meant to stand for 35 years. guess what? the loan period is also usually 35 years. your children won’t be able to inherit it and live in it – they will have to get a loan of their own. Japan is the last country you want to learn house building from.

    Nothing amazing here ! Prefab pieces ! Like a puzzle !
