That was sarcasm, FYI.
Sure, we could spend Friday looking at photos of Forest Hill mansions, with all their high-end finishes, and quality workmanship. But that’s dreaming. A reality check is much more educational.
There are a LOT of people in the city who feel they can “buy a house, fix it up, and sell it for more,” but the end result is often laughable, rather than saleable.
Have a look…
None of the following videos can hold a candle to an upside-down house!
But whereas this house was actually intended to be upside-down, the results in these videos weren’t planned, and came out after absolutely awful workmanship, and poor planning.
You’d be surprised at what I see on a daily basis in this city.
Here are just a couple quick examples.
This door made me laugh, for two reasons, as you’ll see. But I honestly don’t know which workmanship error was worse:
This video shows how lazy some people can be when they don’t have the time or wherewithal to put up three pieces of 2×4, and one sheet of drywall:
If you ever walk into a crappy flip, and you wonder why the floors aren’t even, perhaps it’s because there’s more than one floor…
There’s no excuse for this. A five year old child can “colour inside the lines” in a Dora The Explorer colouring book, and yet a “renovator” can’t keep paint from splashing around?
Here we have laziness at its finest. There’s just no accounting for standards anymore…
Honestly, I should just install a helmet-cam on my forehead, and carry it with me on every single showing…
