Buy the best you can afford its mostly cheaper
From clothes, to cars spending more often costs you less in the long run. In addition you enjoy the pleasures of the extra finery at the same time . When it comes to construction the benefits are exponential. Skip the granite counter tops and go straight to passive windows and a heat exchanger.
The Champlain bridge is a case in point. Saving $ 2 million in 1962 is now going to cost the taxpayer up to $5 billion in 2013. Road salting to combat ice played a large role in this debacle. So why don't we build new bridges and overpasses with heat pumped heating and not use any salt at all?
