    I don't get how these sort of things end up translating to a finished product. You'd think at some stage of the plans or build someone sees the placement of the window and asks themselves what the fuck
    Framers are simply shaved apes. And with spec builds, other trades dgaf about the person before or after them. So framer measures the opening wrong, window installer just puts a window in the hole regardless of where it is, and you’re off to the races.

    Isn't a general contactor responsible for making sure things go according to plans? Boggles my mind how people can be so dumb and careless

    Well. He could check to make sure things are done right.

    Or he could go golfing.

    Pay is the same either way.

    General Contractor and the Purchaser both share some responsibility. But then again, sometimes the homeowner wants something stupid and the contractor will build it for them. I know one house in woodside in Airdrie with a ridiculous small window in hallway that looks terrible. I also know the moron homeowner that requested and insisted on it. It happens. Either way, people are shitty.

    and I did not have the only say in the matter (most people just want it done ASAP and don't care about quality).

    If anything we made a better decision because we had a consensus and were all on the same page.

    A couple notable new listings from my morning perusal -

    https://www.realtor.ca/real-estate/2...ary-elbow-park
    First, ha. Haha.
    Second, big brain marketing move to list it on the 10th anniversary of the floods. I don't think you could pay me $10mm to live on the river.
    Third, if you're going to clearly try and appeal to an out of town buyer ('cause no one in Calgary would pay that, to live there), you probably don't want to say that Calgary "is Canada’s third-largest after Toronto and Vancouver"

    And then this one -

    Fuck all the way right off. That is all.

    1. Elbow River, no thanks. They are definitely trying to get out of towner without flooding history. But it doesn't stop houses around there fetching top dollars.

    2. https://www.honestdoor.com/listing/1...-nw-calgary-ab

    Next door new build is claimed to be worth $2M+ I'm sure you are buying it for the lot, except 1416 is too nice to knock down.

    Is there still any flooding risk there though? I thought the Springbank reservoir basically eliminated the risk going forward once it's online?

    Oh, I really like the house... But that's not a $10mm house or property.

    $1,400 psf and 1/4 acre? Ha. Haha.

    getting insurance there is probably questionable..

    Until the next 1 in 100 or 1000 year flood.

    Streetview only goes back to 2014. Look like the last house was a total loss and they build a new one (currently listed) in 2016?

    Will I be alive in 100 or 1000 years? Probably not. The odds of a flood that scale happening again anytime in our lives is rather small. But even with that, the new reservoir and mitigation efforts means that a flood equal to 2014 can be controlled (next year when the reservoir partially opens, and then fully in 2025). So to really be a concern you'd have to beat the last flood by a significant amount as well.

    Home insurance would definitely be a problem though, kinda dumb if you can't get a policy at all.
