You're right. The only

You're right. The only things I see that has improved in quality with houses is efficiency in terms of insulating and heating/cooling. Walls are thinner and ceilings are not as tall. Seems kind of backwards. People have gotten taller over 100 years yet our ceilings have dropped. Houses are built like crap these days, and it's absurd that their prices rose along with inflation. Doors are basically balsa wood and drywall is usually ⅜". People were able to buy houses 50 years ago. Now they must take out a 30+ year mortgage and still struggle to pay that. I don't buy it. Why would I want to pay twice the cost of something just to not own it anyway?

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.
