The first blogspoty posts is about veterans. Did you link it correctly?

I don't know enough about IZ houses to really understand that other one. But it seems like they're saing veridian can;t be making much money on the houses so something must be fishy?. I dunno.

I know two couples that recently bought veridian and they're thrilled with the houses and location. The locations are Ok, a little further out than i would like in some cases but close to work, or close enough that i can get to a bus line. So it's a minor issue.

Yeah, I failed to find anything terrible about them. All I found were piles of awards and articles lauding their cost-cutting methods and efficiencies that make these houses so cheap. it seems fake that I can't find even one bad thing about them.

Yeah, only 5 years old and already account for 30% of Wisconsin's homes built. Insane.

I agree that I'm not thrilled with the neighborhoods they build, they tend to look similar and haven't enough trees for my liking. However, trees come with time and landscaping. Not much to do about the look of the houses but I can eventually get over that. The allure of having all the amenities that I want in a house out of the gate overwhelms my desire to live in an established, interesting neighborhood currently.

I mean.. granite couter tops, bamboo flooring, built-in shelving, fireplace, loft... I can potentially have all these in my first home for a price I can afford! INSANITY!

Sounds like the same guy, wrong post. The correct link (with a comment by Veridian!) is here. If that's not it, just use the search function at the top (keyword: Veridian) to find the post. I couldn't find the permalink for it.

I'm partial to Craftsman-era houses, myself. :)

Aha, ok.

Sure, variable interest rate loans are dumb and I'm not surprised veridian would be uneasty at the moment.

I'm pretty sure I would take a loan like that unless I had enough cash to cover the house in full!
