It is interesting to see what choices other people make, especially about their home. I think often it is related to the type of person you are: do you deal with form or function? When a house needs serious attention, do you address the foundation and structural issues, or simply paint and plaster the inside? It seems many homeowners choose the latter, leaving the former issues for the next occupants to deal with, allowing those things to deteriorate from small projects into major renovations. It probably isnít surprising, as most people focus on form over function, but it is disappointing.
