Thanks Giving and the Black Eyed Peas

...some quick lyrics from the Black Eyed Peas -

"Like that boom boom pow
Them chickens jackin' my style
They try copy my swagger
I'm on that next shit now
I'm so 3008
You so 2000 and late
I got that boom, boom, boom
That future boom, boom, boom."

Now I know someone will want to point out (incorrectly) that this may be directed at that sorry excuse for a cottage over at Bethel Farms, but that is just one example of the copycats who copied everything but the essence of our homes. It was nice to see the Bethel Farms gang step up their game after my less than flattering description at their attempt to build something attractive - they redid the web photos so you can't (from the photos) see the lack of windows, unflattering front elevation, weird layout, ass-colored siding, etc... Thankfully, they also took the garbage out of the fireplace before they took their marketing shots. What's not so nice is now their customers have to take 3 hours out of their weekend and drive the whole way over there to see the design errors.

I've often said we are the only website whose photos understate the case of our tasteful approach to home design and construction - mostly the real estate pictures tell big lies and a lot of wasted time entails (on the customers' part) finding that out the hard way.

I've often also said our best customers are those most educated in their search - our homes stand out, and I think what amazes the copycats, are fundamentally unique, with personality. Trying to give a home personality by conference call and committee just isn't possible. What we do is hard work - reinventing our homes each and every time - and in the end, I think people, couples and families who choose us understand the uniqueness of our focus and efforts.
