Good points; good advice. WTPS: However, the kind of quality craftsmanship that built, say "Craftsman" houses remain pretty much dead. Here and there there are struggling exceptions, but most of what passes for skill is little more than movie-set trickery. So while I get the point that there are exceptions, the skills that were once fairly common have pretty much vanished; it simply can't compete with the cheap imitations and tawdry taste of the "Modern American Economy."

There are lamentable cases of poor craftsmanship, as Wayne noted, but to say that craftsmanship and professionalism is "dead" is quite an overstatement. I and a large number of other builders and contractors have and do fine work, reliably, and on budget. Buyer beware, of course. Due diligence is needed to find workers with a good reputation, who are interested in keeping it. In fact, I know several who will go above and beyond what their customers will ever see or know. Be clear on your expectations, and insist on them.
