They're building new condos across from my parents house right now (adjacent neighborhood). I see this site everyday and it's growing. Right now, they've got a lot of the framework up for the condos and it's all wood (as far as I can tell). It's also raining a lot here. Question - why don't these things get soaked in the rain water and get damaged ...and fall over? Is the wood really that sturdy? We've had three straight days of super humid weather and pretty big rain showers with one of those days giving us minor flooding.
