A sequel to this series taken in my neighbourhood... http://digitalguff.aminus3.com/image/2008-07-30.html

This is what happened after the old apartments were destroyed.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

It looks like some of that lumber that has precut mortise and tenon joints. I saw a building being constructed with similar materials. Cool shot.

That framing looks much more substantial than what I'm used to seeing.

@Twelvebit: That's Japanese style, Twelvebit.

kiji from Valenciennes City of Lights, France

Day after day they are building the house. Most impressive is when they work on the fundament observing the anti seismic norms. Nice shot

So far this the one that I prefer in that serie. Graphism and men at work.
