the grand conspiracy

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013 by

OK, so it’s been awhile since I posted.

The astute reader will know that I am not dead, as I show up in a random house picture now and then, but I will admit that my contributions to the blog have diminished appreciably as my time has become occupied with building, as opposed to journal-ing.

Nevertheless, I thought it important to expose the seamy underbelly of the architect-builder conspiracy. Namely, they get you all excited with beautiful renderings and images of what your house can look like, and only very late in the process do you see the actual reality of their work.

For example, here is the rendering that we have shared previously:

Lovely rendering of a house named Fred

 

And what did we end up with?!?

This!

Fred-Rendering-actual-photo

See? It’s complet…, well, I mean there’s a huge differ…, uh, well, hmmm.

I got it! They left out a tree!

I tell you, you can’t trust anyone nowadays.

Let’s be careful out there.

Be Sociable, Share!

  1. Hi Kevin
    I started reading your blog with interest – lots of resonance.
    On the power tools front, and on the building your own place front, I just wondered how well you know John Weinshel who lives on one of the islands west of Seattle, a long time FM Dev but also a man with an amazingly large and well equipped workshop and a house that he and his wife designed and built in sections – in his workshop – and then assembled on site – all of wood. I visited him in 2012 with Bruce Robertson – I think you would have something in common.
    Best wishes Nick
