About Bleck


Larry Bleck was a commercial builder in the USA when, in 1994, he was contracted to teach Japanese carpenters to build Western Style 2x4 houses. He fell in love with the country and its people and has since gone on to build homes in Akita, Okayama, Sendai, Maebashi, Toyohashi, Hamamatsu and Osaka, as well as Korea and remodeling projects in Australia.

"Building renovation has always been a passion," says Larry. "I love the challenge of bringing the old, worn and often unloved back to life. I work closely with my clients, to create a result a new generation can love all over again."
