    Cheaper? But ehhhh
    I'm conflicted on this article.

    High quality at low cost. These are free homes right? You got use out of it for a few years move out or something, to sue Pitt now over this is kind of a slap in the face. Ungrateful really.

    Bad Karma.

    edit: They are paying for the houses?

    k nvrm lol.

    isnt necessary to be true.

    Idk in US. In here wooden house is 33% cheaper than brick house (at same size) but excluding floor. Maybe it is about 25% complete with floor.

    But wooden house need constant maintenace such termite control.
    Also weaker.

    I think it's because you can build them faster than the brick houses.
    Especially the interior walls.
    So the U.S construction companies churn them out quicker to earn more money.

    I always felt funny how easily they punch through walls in movies every time they want to show an anger scene.
    If I tried that at my home, my arm would be broken just to make a small dent in the wall.

    There is nothing to that. I happen to think @Bruce Wayne is a very upstanding fellow and probably wants to help these unfortunate people.

    Yep this is exactly what an above board, totally well intentioned charity organisation without anything to hide does.

    I mean all they demanded was for her to never be critical of them in any perceivable way, in return for them most graciously returning the money she had paid them for their improperly and unsafely constructed house.

    Problem is, even if it had been free, you can't just let people live in houses where mold spores cause serious and often life destroying side effects, be they memory loss or tremors, and then just say "Lol it was free so we can just ignore safety protocols and use improper material to save on costs even if it puts entire families' health at serious risk."

    If it is free the owner should have enough money to repair it themselves.

    You can't give someone a house that is so defective it is hazardous to their health, and then expect them to pay to repair the problems their own trained builders and architects couldn't, didn't know about or did inform them about.

    Also you don't get to legally endanger other people's health as a result of your negligence just because they didn't pay you anything.

    Mind you the people here did in fact pay.

    Yeah they paid. MoP already told me. Are you blind or something?

    If the house is free and given as gift to new owner and year later they found mold and steps are getting decomposed.
    1.owner can fix it themselves
    2. They can leave.

    Unless someone died becUse structural failure. Roofs collaps etc. I dont see why someone is suing for free stuff. That degraded overtime not at normal rate but still not have flawed/dangerous defect that kill someone

    So did you not notice the parts where people suffered serious health consequences as a result ? People have been suffering from memory loss, infections, and at least one man had to quit his job because he's been unable to stop his hands from trembling

    And again people mention that the houses were constructed improperly and from improper materials, how is this an argument ?

    Because the article doesn't quote several cases with at least one physician linking the condition with mold spores.

    They have codes etc
    Concrete is harder to fall apart but wood without maintenance is very easy to deteriorate.
