With temperatures in the 100s here in Texas we are taking every chance we can get to be indoors enjoying the AC here in hill country. When I'm in space, whether outside or in, I find myself first scanning to capture the essence of my surroundings, and then the details, a million things run through my head. After dinner a few days ago I sat at the table slouching with the base of my skull sitting on the top of the chair looking up at the ceiling (Sidetone: this is a great way to work the knots out of your neck if you hold tension there like I do). Some of the things that crossed through my mind while doing this:
I wonder what shiplap would look like on the ceiling, or perhaps reclaimed wood
I'd really like to refinish the drywall and change the texture
I should get out my paint sprayer and touch up that section
Why do I share this? Because it is a good example of how you never know what you are going to see, and when, while living in your home. The "the clients aren't going to see it" mentality is not how we operate. We look for everything. Part of our quality process is to "live" in our homes during the build and analyze every possible angle. Yes, we even lay on the floor and look up at the ceiling to make sure that when you're laying in bed you don't see something we haven't already reviewed and make sure passed our inspection.
Quality is as much about what you can see on the cosmetic finish out, as it is the guts of a home. Both are equally important. As you spend time inside during the heat and quarantine we find ourselves in, take a look around. You'll be surprised at what you will see.
