I'm guessing these where started because of small lots and tight setbacks? Or are they otherwise much cheaper to build?
The troubling thing is that builders continue to offer them and build them as specs homes on 1+ acre lots. I feel ecspeically bad a younger family that is building right down the road and they have one of these 3 car snout garages. The kicker is that they did the minimum front setback and have side entry to the garage as you drive up. So they literally can't see the front of their house when the drive up. That is just crazy to me if you're spending $1/2 million on a new home with that much land.
Who should be held responsible?
I feel like this is an epidemic in my area as there are 4 of these in my subdivision of now 18 homes that are all different custom home builders.
