I always enjoy open houses. Whenever I can I like to tour the newest homes, seeing what is being used and how it is done. One house was being built close by, I accidently toured it too soon. I know I never want people to see some of my work before I am finished, I never like to criticize another persons work either. BUT….......... this one was a joke. The finish work (or so called) had more putty, caulking and WHATever. Mitered corners (maybe hard to tell with all that plaster overtop) With todays pneumatic guns why space your holes, just pull the trigger WHENEVER you feel like it, regardless of what was behind it, most plater at times I guess. Everything was being painted anyway. Primer, sanded then spray painted. The end result did look okay, I guess. I am just wondering , how can someone justify charging that enormous cost for MDF and plastic !
These are MY thoughts: OLD SCHOOL. I really don’t think it should be called a high end home when substandard materials are being used.
Hollow core doors vs solid doors.
MDF, vs solid wood
Click wood floor vs hardwood flooring.
Don’t even want to comment on:
Interior paint being used
Roof coverings ?
Outside wall materials?
What do others think ?
Do you want a home that will be here for another 100 years or do you want a home that has the latest, greatest FAD materials that really haven’t been tested very well, looks good for short period of time, then re-do everything.
