美语情形对话 第144期:修建作图 Construction


Todd: Rob, when you first came to Japan you said you did construction.


Rob: Yes, I was hired as a framer for 2x4 types of homes, so the same style of homes that are built in Canada or America.


Todd: OK, so what do you mean by frames?


Rob: Framing, the actually frame of the house so, we start from the foundation, we lay down the sub-floor, we build the walls, a second floor, more walls, square everything up, and then add in the windows, the exterior wrap, and on some occasions we will finish the roof.


Todd: How long does it take you to make a house?


Rob: Our job would take around two to three weeks, with three guys, a team of three, we able to frame a house, shingle the roof, install the windows and the doors in less than three weeks.


Todd: Oh, wow. Now when you work, do you work with a Canadian crew or Japanese?


Rob: Actually, it was quite mixed. Our boss was from Seattle, Washington, and we had people from Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and some Japanese workers.


Todd: Wow, that's cool. What it a good experience?


Rob: Yeah, it was a very good experience. I hope one day maybe to be able to build my own house with some friends. It's possible to save money and it's the enjoyment of building something for yourself.


Todd: OK, where would you build this house?


Rob: That's a good question. I'm thinking, maybe back in Canada, but maybe not in the East Coast. It'd be possibly in B.C. or maybe in another country. Who knows?
