1-800- FAKE MUNTINS

I live in a neighborhood in the suburbs that is known for McMansions, large imposing houses that lack architectural integrity. I have a small peeve about the majority of these houses that I formerly blamed the uneducated Joe Blow builder for; however, I have come to realize that that blame lies in that of the buyer because they are obviously willing to plop down several hundred thousand to a couple of million for FAKE ALUMINUM TRIMMED WINDOWS. Why aren't consumers savvy enough to know that the builder just put trailer house windows in a million dollar home? Oh my GOD!! Not only are their windows fake and super cheap looking, but the are inoperable and during Hurricane IKE the owners of many of these ugly window bearing McMansions roasted inside their houses during the day and night. Rather than shelling out twenty thousand dollars on plantation shutters after the fact, put the money in the windows to begin with.
When aluminum windows are in a juxtaposition with wood French Doors... WOW!
This builder not only used fake windows, but didn't even trim out the interior. This would be acceptable for a lower budget home I suppose, but his one is almost a million.

Notice the windows specified for the turrett, the main architectural focus of this home.




I am at a loss for words.

OMG don't even get me started. As a painter, I get to see their shitty workmanship up close and personal!

First, it's the buyer's fault for being materialistic and pretentious, living in a big box they think looks fabulous from the street, when in fact they can barely afford the house, much less good landscaping. And so what if the fixtures are eerily similar to ones you'll find in a trailer house? Who cares? the windows are the same as the trailer house and they're probably feeding their kids macaroni and cheese anyway.

Ok and then it's the builders' fault, too. But if people will buy it, why not?

I would rather live in 1700 square feet of sound construction and decent trim work than 3800 square feet of crap.

I comment each time I like a post on a site or if I have something to valuable to contribute
to the conversation. It is triggered by the sincerness
communicated in the post I read. And after this article "1-800- FAKE MUNTINS".

I was actually moved enough to drop a commenta response ;)
I do have a couple of questions for you if it's okay. Is it simply me or do a few of the remarks look as if they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at other online sites, I'd like to follow you.
Would you list all of all your public pages like your linkedin profile,
Facebook page or twitter feed?

Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to
manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
