I saw the new apartment outside mine get built from bottom to top. I watched the workers lay the stone foundation, embed a massive parking lot on floors one through 6 (see photo), and paint the finishing touches around the pool. It was like watching a kid grow up.
When you see something built in front of you, the parts, the guts, it’s even harder to believe in living in it. But that’s how everything works.
At some point, that laptop or mobile phone you’re using was just a bunch of different parts. Through the help of machines and delicate hand touches, those pieces came together to make products. And then someone sold it to you.
The weirdest part about the new apartment is watching salespeople market the rooms. They talk about the expanded facilities and the view. 7 months ago the gym was just a speck of sand and the bachelor pad was just air.
This what it feels like to have kids?
