Gates to Nowhere
Some time ago I blogged about the social obligation to build a big wall with flashy gates if you manage to build a modern house that's a cut above the rest. It's a statement of status and wealth as much as Prado and Gucci.
The usual order for construction is first of all thousands of tons of soil, then the wall, follwed by the gates. In this case they've done the soil but seem to have forgotten the wall. If they do the wall, I'll bet they run out of money and never build the house. And if they do the house, they'll probably start by doing the roof first.
Where's the postman going to put the letters? They've forgotten to put up a box.
