If I bought a house in just the right neighborhood with just the right lot, and razed the house to built a new custom home on the spot, this would bug me every day when I got home.
Returning home every day you could not avoid seeing both of these things.
The photo on the left is the house number. The grouping is not centered on the front facade of the front porch roof. Only one number is level. The numbers are not spaced attractively.
The light fixture on the right is beside the garage door. I noticed it as soon as I pulled into the driveway. The fixture is 20" from top to bottom and not close to plumb. Worse, the base is literally glued to the wall with a very thick bead of silicone caulking. Straightening it will take some work!
My recommendation: when one spends over a million dollars for a custom home, the little things should be as attractive as the big things! This is a gorgeous house. It's not without its issues, but gorgeous nonetheless. It might seem picky to identify such things as these, but for me, this would bug me every day when I got home!
