Well, there is if it's considered industry standard.

When you do interior trim for a living, you learn what is expected, what is the norm and what is industry standard.

If any trim guy did that in any of the homes I work on, they would be eating the trim and losing the money due them for the install. No one has ever requested that in my 30 years in new construction.

It is just NOT done that way, unless the HO thinks it looks better than the traditional way.


It's not that it took him an hour to make 100 bucks, it's that it didn't take you 10 hours to save 100 bucks.
