It does look odd. The placement of the inside posts is weird. There must be some kind of cantilever/box thing going under all that soffit. It looks like they had enough room for some steel or massive beamage and minimal posting. That would have looked killer. Well, killerish anyway.
Agreed. You beat me to it. I'm quicker to point the finger at the plans before the builder.
I've built some awkward looking things before because, 'that's what the homeowner wants'. Those are the ones where you don't stick your sign in the front lawn.
A hurricane swept the town, (Goderich) a couple of years ago and obliterated thousands of trees and hundreds of century old buildings. My guess is that a renegade builder decided to capitalize and build a few spec homes. Or maybe not. Perhaps someone actually thought this looked good and would last.
It was/is a beautiful town, I just hate to see it blighted like this.
Here's a great one, what moron builds like this? Oh FYI there are HUNDREDS of this model of home that they've been building for over 10 years and they still build them like this... Talk about a stupid builder.
