Hi all - In reference to this snippet of Katie Henry's post about unit pricing: "A lot of our members got totally married to their price per square foot. Unfortunately, measurements taken during and after construction revealed that most units turned out bigger or smaller than stated in the contract, ranging from a few sq. ft. to about 80 sq. ft., as I recall. (Not counting Jessie's unit, heh heh.)" Katie's laughter is because my unit during construction was the "unit-from-hell" that, because of a major mismeasuring error, had to be redesigned from scratch AFTER we had signed our sales contract with the developer. Not to mention flooding, additional measuring errors resulting in large per square foot figures just before closing, problems with the concrete floor patches heaving out three times, and mice. Despite all that, the unit is good-enough and ridiculously comfortable to live in. Guess the karma is balancing itself out... Another reason not to focus on per square foot figures early on is because unit prices may have to change abruptly when reality intrudes in the form of actual construction bids.
