We received the first “information request” in july and immediately replied with a quotation and tub drawings. Then, the client contacted us again in november and we had a tight back and forth mail exchange about the floor slope and how the tub bottom and spout should cope with it.
Then the order was confirmed in december and we completed and shipped the ofuro in january.
The ofuro was punctually received, they opened it for the roughing of the plumbing and repacked it (for 2 months if I understand) until the bathroom construction is complete.
Needless to say that the client is an architect. Very precise, very professional and the plan well structured.
I always recommend to use an architect to streamline your design and the construction process!

Mr. Ikeda is here making the natural oil penetrate in the porous cross section of the bottom plank. The color looks considerably darker and yellow tone in the photo but it is not so evident in reality.
