"Curb appeal"---------The home as a commodity worth only as much as
the dollars that it can be traded for. The endless fortress like houses and
speculation on same has led to entire developments in forclosure and a
disconnect with our own selves. I couldn't disagree more with the premise that
we need stronger intervention of building codes and sameness. Does it really
lead to more security or just feed the "cul-de-sac" mentality. These
so called design errors reflect who we are as a people.
