Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #138

Welcome back to your favorite little meme!
I was actually out of the country for the past couple of weeks, at my brother's wedding festivities in the US. Yay! We had a wonderful trip, although it was very strange to be away from Israel during these crazy times.

Anyway, I'm back, and it's still pretty crazy! Please, wherever you are, send some good karma over here for a quick and peaceful solution to this disastrous situation, and for our dear soldiers - our husbands, brothers, sons, cousins and friends - to come home safe and sound.

All that said, here's your weekly dose of Israeli architecture, and I must say, I think this one is pretty cool. It's an apartment building that's going up right near my house, and you can easily see a bunch of the stages of building in action. First there's the bare concrete. It's sprayed with a tar-like substance, to seal out moisture. Then it's got a layer of yellow insulation stuff, and the Jerusalem stone goes on top of that. Kind of wacky looking, don't you think? I'll be sure to post a photo when it's finished and prettier :)
Maybe it's just me, but I've always enjoyed looking at the insides of things :)

Now it's your turn - please play along with us here at Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! by posting your window, door, or anything architectural, linking here, and signing up in the widget, below. Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful week!

Hi Toby, hope you enjoyed your brother's wedding and trip to he US - and hope things gan calm down for you in Israel...I like the 'under construction' look of the building as I get to imagine what the will look like after it is complete. I like to imagine and make guesses - never too old for that :)

Welcome home, welcome to the Red Alert sirens.
You're right, it is fun to watch buildings being built.

Welcome back to your country! Hope you all stay safe. It's interesting to watch construction going up.

I added my link again--the first one did not seem to be working. So sorry!

Even though you are less safe, you are probably happiest in Israel. Glad you could be at your brother's wedding:)
