Kenichi Ishida Hanshi 8 Dan Seminar

Although we are in the middle of our construction, we had the opportunity to host Kenichi Ishida Hanshi 8 Dan Kendo Seminar at our Dojo. It was a great experience for all of us!

These are the back side stairs

These stairs was added to the plan, because for fire safety purposes, we have to have an additional stair going to the second floor.

Home made Mexican food

This morning, I had breakfast with the construction crew. Their wives made it. Delicious!

Second floor framing has started

The first floor framing is almost done. Now they are moving into the second floor.

More framing of the first floor

Framing Started

The framing started, and this seems to go fast.

Material arriving

Now that the foundation is done, the next step is to do the rough construction. A lot of lumber material has arrived today.

Air conditioning installation

I personally do not think that we need an A/C system in a Kendo Dojo, specially here in Southern California. However, the California building code requires us to have a heater. Since, the price of a heater only system and a heat/cold air system is not much different, we decided to go with the dual one. We are very spoiled. We have 4 huge A/C system for this Dojo.

It took them two whole days to drill 4 holes on this concrete wall.

Drain in the bathrooms and kitchen

Connecting to the sewer

On the parking lot side, the digging continues. This is to connect the drain to the sewer.
