In 2005, Mr. Tim Mitchell (former Food and Beverage Director at Dragon Hill Lodge) and his family decided to have their home renovated. As soon as the ceiling was demolished to update the services they were amazed finding these large logs still in perfect conditions supporting the roof of their house.
All Japanese buildings are brick walls and timber roof structure. The bricks were made inside the base.
