Can I build a Japanese tea house?

Building a Japanese Tea House

Your dream is finally about to be realized. You're going to have your own Japanese tea house. You're so excited that you can't wait to get started, but you want to make sure you get everything right. There's no sense in building a tea house if it isn't authentic. What do you need to do to create a tea house that is correctly designed and built?

Actually, to make an authentic tea house, you'll have to have terrific carpentry skills and the ability to create the graceful curves of the house roof. Finding accurate plans can be quite a challenge, too. However, if you are willing to persevere, you'll have a project you can be proud of.

If you decide that the real thing is too hard to create, why not just make your own version of a tea house? The most important thing to keep in mind is that a tea house is very simple and is made with natural materials. You should also think about details that are necessary for the ceremony, such as the low entrance door that requires guests to duck their heads to enter and the hearth so that you can heat the water in the kettle.
