To build


The first walls of the first structure of what will be the Promenade at Downey are going up. This particular structure is going to be a gym, according to one of the workmen. It will include a basketball court and a swimming pool.

These wall sections were made on the spot by first laying the cement floor. Then they built a wooden frame the shape of each wall section, poured the cement and waited for each to cure. Now they hoist each one up and attach them to the floor.


I thought it would be cool to be a part of the team that put this building together. I love building things. When I worked for Boeing, I was a small part of the team that built the C17 airlifter. Whenever I see one in flight, I think, "I helped build that."

Do you love to build?
