This is another story about High-rise apartments, but after this one, I'll give the subject a rest...Rox was walking on the beach last week and remarked that she had seen guys sending up buckets of mortar or plaster from the ground of a 12 story building, all the way up to the tippy-top, and they were just using a pulley and a rope!!!
Here is the building---notice how folks are living in the lower floors and they continue to finish the upper ones...naturally, that pic shows only the top few floors...now take a look at this guy doing the plastering...you couldn't pay me enough to do that!!!
These guys are plastering by hand!!! They certainly have my respect...as do those hard working guys building the first building I talked about...Frankly, I've never seen any group work so hard, be so cheerful, and work with so little direction or dissent.
