From the 1st april 2007 Grondwork Fukuoka expanded its activities in the Joyo area based on the motto "Living in Joyo means letting Joyo live". For more "Life" in this village a native house, out of the old Joyo-times and more than 150 years old, has been donated to Groundwork Fukuoka.
Now nearly ten years after the house became vacant, several repairs have become necessary. Especially the walls have been damaged a lot. Water and other natural influences increased the amount of places where repairs have to be done. This was visible even before any deeper examination. From now on Groundwork Fukuoka members especially authorized and qualified architects and construction workers are required, as new application methods. Until now we already measured up the house, so at least we know some characteristics of this building. After these preparations the reconstruction can start.
