Taka has building for about three months now, but a few weeks ago he decided to build something just for me and he wanted it to be a palace. Since we share an interest in Japanese style and architecture, it wasn’t long before we narrowed our focus. And since we’ve been especially interested in Japan’s Edo period, the focus narrowed even more.
The house is huge and inside it is large with a small garden in the center and the second floor opens onto the garden also. Inside there will be a great room on the first floor with a library, kitchen and perhaps a guest room or two. Then the second floor will have a large bedroom, bathroom, perhaps a study, perhaps a guest room or two as well. The second floor’s ceiling is open and there his a vast space up to the roof. I’m pretty sure this house is a bigger project than either of us imagined.
