Hello!

I did DIY (Do it yourself) again @ Firsthouse Gumyouji!!

This time is the third one!!

 

 

The first one was to fix walls in the living room and water sink.

The second one was to replace the wall paper in a room.

 

And this time…

the floor in a room(^^)/

Firsthouse Gumyouji has 2 types of rooms, a normal private room with 6 tatami mats (about 10㎡) and 1DK.

This time, I am going to change the floor of 6 tatami mats room!

The floor was flooring, but it was a bit like a scrub due to aged deterioration over many years, so there were scratches, so I will finish it cleanly to welcome new residents(^o^)

Because it may be slightly plain, I will not appear this time…

(It is quite difficult to take a photo with Selphy while working・・・)

 

This time, I’ll paste the flooring material called CF (cushion floor) on the flooring.

Since you can purchase CF easily at the home center, it is reasonable and popular for people who like DIY as well as wallpaper.

As most CF’s are about 180 cm wide and about 90 cm in size, if the room width is over 180 cm, you need to purchase both 180 cm and 90 cm.

And here is the picture after completion.

Originally, since the floor was black flooring, it may have given a dark impression.

I think it turned out considerably bright by making it beige type CF(^_^)v

As the color got lighter, the room might look a bit wider.

Then I put some furniture.

Desk, chair, bed, curtain are brand-new ones.

(It took much time to set up(^_^;)

Compared to the first photo, it changed considerably!

Also, because the screen door was also torn, I applied this again neatly.

Since you can purchase webs and utensils at home centers.

And now there is YouTube, so if you do not know how to do it, you can check the work process with animation

(How convenient the world has become!!)

 

The newly emptied room is being repaired as needed from time to time.

I am trying to provide everyone with a nice room.

 

In Firsthouse Gumyouji, the common spaces and the interior are  being repaired which we can do when in need, I think  it is kept relatively clean.

There are some residents who moved in a few months ago, and the others have lived in for a few years.

 

Originally, First House Gumyouji tends to have many foreign residents and we have many inquiries from abroad since it is very convenient to commute to Shinagawa in Tokyo and Yokohama in Kanagawa Prefecture.

 

As there is also the possibility of losing your room, early inquiries and tours are recommended

I’m looking forward to have your inquiry from my heart♪

 

PS ①

DAISo (100 yen shop)  was opened with a few seconds on foot from the property!

There is no scary thing anymore for me。(Scared of what!?)

The equipment necessary for the house is now enough for even 100 yen shop to be enough, so I’m very happy!!

There is nothing to worry with life at shopping districts where vibrant downtown atmosphere drifts, near the station, supermarket convenience store, drug store, etc.

 

PS ②

I put a dining set in the room of 1 DK.

Of course we also accept couple and friends!

Let’s have fun together with Halloween and Christmas events!!

Hello, I am Nagata.

It might be too late, but curry has been my fad lately. Here in Japan, there are many curry restaurants serving big nan bread and you can take it as much as you want, but today’s curry is Japanese curry with rice.

 

And today’s my curry diary is about a curry Restaurant “Yokohama Hammar“, just 24 seconds by walking from Hakuraku Station.

Chicken-steak curry with large portion of rice, cheese topping (1,050 yen)

Curry served here are free of gluten, flour and chemical seasoning.

One onion is included in this meal and the taste was fruity.

 

This time was chicken steak this time, but since I can also enjoy various other toppings, I will be looking forward to what to do next.

There are not only two types of pickles on the table but also Nampura with blue peppers specialized in Hammar!

 

Hey hey, Nampura match with curry? Oh wait, The tears came out irresistibly because it was too delicious…

I want to live by eating only this curry. It was my decided day.

Goodmorning!

The blog of last week “It is DIY boom in Interwhao“、I reported the changes of wallpaper in the living room and water sink space at Firsthouse Gumyouji.

Then this time, I changed the wallpaper in a room!!

For the room, if the time goes on, it gets dirty and it is not fresh to live in.

So I changed the old paper to a new one which is called “accent wallpaper”

The wallpaper is based on a color of white with patterns.

This room No. is 5.

I wrote in the previous article but I paste glue by hand.

If I paste too much, it will be uneven which is not beautiful.

So I pushes out air and extra glue on the surface with brush.

The picture above is when I push out air and and wipe glue.

By the way, I say I’m an Interwhao craftworkman but I do property guidance as the daily work.

I’m not pro so there must be wrong procedure. Please take a look gently…

Then I paste glue, cut, push out air, and repeat this procedure.

Cutting.

Replace the blade of cutter regularly because it will deteriorate and you cannot cut the wallpaper clearly・・・

Finish!

Several joints are highlighted in some places, but we will paste the caulking to hide the joint.

After caulking.

Basically, the wallpaper is white so this might be ok…

But I noticed that the handle was slightly off the line.

This was a secret after I finished pasting

This picture is another wall after pasting.

Looks uneven but it got much better than before…

 

We don’t usually ask the pro to do this. We do what we can do. By this effort, we can provide a room with reasonable rent which is one of the Interwhao’s characteristic.

 

I’m planning to change a wallpaper, furniture, and so on.

So I will update the information as soon as I can!

Hello!

Today’s Kanagawa seems to be rising in temperature to around 28 to 29 degrees, and I would be sweaty every year this season…

From the end of last year at the Interwhao, we are doing renovations that we can do by ourselves, so-called DIY with various share houses.

Interior decoration is the main thing to say refurbishment. Each staff is working hard to change the wallpaper, change the CF (cushion floor), floor tile, carpet and provide better rooms to customers.

 

This time, we fixed some common spaces of the share house “First house Gumyouji” in the Minami-ku, Yokohama-shi, so I will report the results(^^)/

 

Firsthouse Gumyouji・・・

This property is located 3 minutes on foot from Keikyu Main Line Gumyouji Station, and 7 minutes on foot from Gumyouji Station on Yokohama Municipal Subway Blue Line.

 

On the way from the Blue Line to the station, hanging out at the Gumyouji shopping street

It is the best place to spend with friendly people who are full of humanity and humanity with the atmosphere of downtown packed in Gumyouji shopping area.

In addition, there are many bakery shops, standing drinking Izakaya,  and prepared meal shops near Gumyouji Station.

 

Also, you get supermarket, convenience store, drug store, restaurant, and fitness gym as well.

It’s about ten minutes to Yokohama Station, so this property is what we recommended for those who work in the vicinity of Yokohama

 

The contents of this refurbishment are simple things like just changing the wallpaper

 

But the walls are wide, are not they?

I wanna say to those who are thinking “nothing changes even if you change just the wallpaper”,

changing the wall changes the atmosphere a lot!!

Of course, the impression depends on the color and pattern of the wallpaper

 

 

The first one is water sink.

Although it was not particularly dirty, I thought that I want to change the wallpaper around the washstand to a one with a bright pattern.

Because the ratio of the women residents now is higher, I put the wallpaper of flower pattern this time.

Can you see it??

This photo with the first piece attached.

If you look closely, it is not a floral design …

But the new wallpaper is with light blue and light pink, it will you give a sense of cleanliness?

 

Well well… quite hard to see…lol

In this case, you should come and see this!!

 

When I met a resident by chance,

Me “How’s this wallpaper?”

She “It’s cute!”

 

It may be a flattering, but it is worthwhile to change it if you can say that.

 

Next is living room.

Although there are lots of plants, I will change the overall ornaments around here, the base of this space is white color so I thought from a while ago that I want to add something here as well.

I’ll move TV anyway.

You can see dark marks where there is a clock.

How’s this!?!?

I put a woodgrain tone wallpaper, I think that the atmosphere has changed considerably.

Because I’m not a craft workman,it took me about 2 hours to finish here…

In order to wipe around the paddy around, I use a cloth that I squeezed with water, but wipe the rust and go to wash the rag, wipe the rag and go to the wash again….

 

By the way, if you go to the home center, you also find wallpapers with paste, but I always buy wallpapers without paste.

BECAUSE…it is very heavy if I buy them with paste(-_-;)

Previously, when using wallpaper with paste, I have a kind of a trauma that the wallpaper has broken since the wallpaper becomes heavy with paste, so I’m doing it without it for a while.

It takes much time to just paste starch..

There is a machine for that but it cost about 3,000 US dollars.

If I’m engaged only in this task, it might be reasonable to purchase it but I’m not.

I’ll just do it by hands. lol

 

Finally, put the TV back in place and finish it。

The whole picture of the living room is like this. (I am thinking about exchanging tables.)

Originally, because it was white, a red sofa makes a nice contrast.

Next time, I will change the wallpaper of the vacancy, so I will try to upload it to our blog again as soon as it is completed.

First House Gumyoji evolves from time to time, please look forward to it.

 

Because there is a shared veranda that can afford space in this property, I think that we all want BBQ in the summer!

It’s been 1 year since I moved in Firsthouse Yokohama Aoba

Only what I can say is “Fun” if I express my life in the sharehouse.

Of course, I sometimes have a hard time as I live in here as the staff.

Such that when a resident lost his key at midnight (let me sleep), a drunk stranger was sleeping in front of the house which was scary to residents (he run away when 3 guys of us tried to wake him up), exchanging the garbage bags of common kitchen space on my holiday, residents telling me to replace the toilet paper on my holiday….

 

But that is all that I am doing for the irreplaceable friends who have chosen the first house Yokohama Aoba and are living inhabitants who continue to live, so it is hard but I have never thought that it is hard.

 

Currently, I feel that share house is often chosen by the reason of low cost in my daily work.

The rent is cheaper than the average in this area, and the utility bill (including the internet ) is fixed 12,000 yen no matter how much people use.

 

“I want to interact with many people!”

“I want to talk with foreigners!”

“I want to lead my life as a drama!”

 

Actually, a person who thinks this way is minority. (That’s why, please feel free to come and view this sharehouse)

 

But if a resident who thought “it is cheap to live” starts feeling ” Sharehouse is fun! I love staying in the lounge and spending time with people! This is sharehouse!”, this is really thankful for me.

 

Not just to provide a place to live but my goal is to create a sharehouse where people can experience merits to live in a sharehouse since I started to work here.

 

Don’t you think this wonderful if people talk about the sharehouse after some years have past??

(アンケート)

1.Yes 2. A little yes 3. A little no  4. Not at all 5.Don’t know

※:No meaning

 

My private story, I changed glasses…

When putting a plate to glasses, it becomes sunglasses.

The lens of plate is yellow.

Then I noticed that yellow lens is like “Pikotaro”!!!

PPAP~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~!!!!!!!!!

I say again.

PPAP~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~!!!!!!!!!

 

The writer was me who is going back home with listening to the sound of rain in the rainy season.

Do you know this news?

The big project that a certain train in Kanagawa prefecture is constructed to connect to JR Line and Tokyu Line will be finished in 2022!

 

Literally, Soutetsu line (this is a convenient line but a local train) will be connected to JR Line and Tokyu Line (both runs Kanagawa and Tokyo)

If this comes true, you can go through Shibuya from this train! (This really becomes very convenient for Soutetsu Line user because when you go to Tokyo area from this area, you have to go to Yokohama and then transfer a train to get to Tokyo areas where it becomes very crowded everyday at Yokohama station)

 

OMG…you can go to Shibuya where many young people gather  from this edge of Yokohama area…

 

That is , you can go to Shibuya within 30 min from Tsurugamine station without transferring a train!!

Also, the plan of city development is also proceeding according to this project at each station in Soutetsu Line.

 

At Tsurugamine station, the shopping road is prosperous and convenient to live and also there is the zoo park called “Zoorasia Park” so you can enjoy your boy/girlfriend.

 

We expect for more development along this train!

 

Studio type apartment “Tsurugamine”

Rent :51,000 yen Maintenance fee: 4,500 yen

Handling fee : 30,000 yen

13 min walk from Tsurugamine station of Soutetsu Line

11 min for Yokohama station!

Workout is trendy among men and women.

Some of the residents in my sharehouse go for a jogging in the morning, take exercise in a gym,  do yoga at the terrace of the sharehouse, or take protein…

Awesome, everyone…

Hearing these stories, I always think I will do it, too, but all I can come up with is an excuse, like “If there were a gym nearby”, or “If I could go home early from work”. HOWEVER, there has been a thing lately that refuses these excuses!! That is 24-hour Fitness club!!

A gym like that has opened, located just 2 minutes’ walk from Nishi-Magame Station on the way to Ma. Maison Nishi-Magome.
The house, Ma. Maison Nishi-Magome, is 4 minutes away from the station; that is, the gym is just 2 minutes away from the property! On the way from the station to the house, you will see the gym even if you are not interested. The best location for workout regularly.

Under the gym, on the ground floor, a convenience store will be opened. The area gets better and better…

Women, who want to keep yourself healthy, just come to Ma. Maison Nishi-Magome!!!

Nishi-Magome Station, the first and last station on Toei-Asakusa Line.

This station might be unfamiliar to you, but it is actually a convenient station, just 8 minutes to Gotanda Station.

From Gotanda, you can take JR Yamanote-Line, easy to get to Shibuya & Shinjuku. Even to Shimbashi Station, it takes only 19 minutes; therefore, it’s convenient for people who work at the metropolitan area in Tokyo.

Located just 4 minutes’ walk from Nishi-Magome Station, there is a women-only, furnished apartment including a bathroom, kitchen in your room. That is Ma・Maison Nishi-Magome!! Little-known, but highly recommended!!

Because there are supermarkets, a drug store, and convenience stores around the station, you will be  able to make a comfortable living and just 4 minutes walk is a big advantage!!

Even if you go home late, the street in front is not a dark, quiet one. That will give you a feeling of security.

 

Here, I will tell you about a new-opened, stylish cafe close to Ma・maison Nishi-Magome I found!!!

“Cheval Cafe”

 

The day I took these photos was so windy that the seats at the terrace were closed. But out of curiosity, I peeped into the inside of the cafe, welcomed by a waitress with a big smile. She was so kind as to tell me about the cafe. How kind!!

The motif is a “stable” as you can imagine from the name “Cheval (meaning horse in French).

It is a cafe which just opened last December and run by a married couple.

Interior and exterior are very nice, and so is the terrace. If interested, please check the URL below!!

https://www.chevalcafe.com/

Meals look delicious! I regret that I just ate Soba an hour before finding this spot.

I like to have lunch at the terrace seats on a nice weather day.

Also, I personally wish to have a stylish cafe like this near my house!!

If you are interested, please visit this cafe and come to our property, too!!!!!

Hi, everyone!!

We went to view wonderful cherry blossoms along the river close to Firsthouse Mizonokuchi +a, +b.

“Sakae-Hashi”

Now is the time for cherry trees in full bloom. (^^)

Beautiful are weeping cherry trees on either side!!

We feel relaxed, looking at a flower leaf fluttering down and floating down the stream.

The riverside goes a few kilometers, and at some points of the road, you can go down to the waterfront.

It will be fun looking up the flowers from there.

The trees had small flower leaves but with much volume like popcorn!!

Why don’t you take a walk around this area☆

 

 

March 26, 2018

Hello, everyone☆

The life is really comfortable these days, nice weather with good sunshine. The cherry trees are in 80 percent full bloom, so the best time for viewing them will be this week or next week(^^)

In front of the entrance of Firsthouse Ichigao, there is a small flower garden. This time, we made it changed spring-like!!!

Before-pictures are these.

 

 

The process is like this …

Today it was a pretty warm weather, wasn’t it!?(^^;

 

 

Ta-da!!

Ready for planting!!

Turning the soil, spreading fertilizers, and then we went to get some flowers!!!

From here, I am required to display them as beautifully as possible!!

 

After-picture

Buying some items that surround the flowers, the garden became closer to spring!!( ・▽・)

 

I look forward to these flowers growing!!

 

In our properties, some “gimmicks” like this can be found.

We put our energy not only into events or parties, but also into interior or exterior decoration!!!
