This is a Scholarly Argumentative Essay.
The essay is about how typical in the field of architecture in the UNITED STATES meant Durable, Reliable and long standing, but today the large scale housing developments in the USA value cheap cost and quick time, rather then provide the best and longest lasting home that they can produce.
I am arguing that we must return to the practice of building well built homes that last a long time.
You must only use Examples of design and architecture from the UNITED STATES, NOT FROM ANYWHERE ELSE.
please make seprate sections of durable, reliable and long standings and in each section use a precedent study to prove the point that the older US building were better built, ALSO YOU MUST USE the DRAYTON HALL IN south Carolina as a precedent study, AS WELL AS the Jonathan fairbanks house, and other AMERICAN precedent studies.
ALL OF THE SOURCES MUST BE SCHOLARLY SOURCES.
HERE IS THE THESIS STATEMENT, please use this as a guide for the paper

Remember the "typical single family home construction i am referencing is the Large track home developments built by companies like DR Horton.

When compared to the ancient buildings, there is a huge contrast in terms of durability and sustenance of natural disasters such as earthquakes. In the recent decades, the housing construction has claimed to move towards industrialization so as to reduce costs in construction. While that is a positive move, on the contrary side quality of housing is impaired with the reduction in cost. Industrialization and the so called technology have focused on cheaper building materials which are in essence of low quality and of a short life span. The architectures of today do not take time in designing the houses as compared to the ancient architectures who could take their time to come up with good houses. Architectures today are motivated by the payment. The architectures were guided by the typical architectural principles. The Definition of Typical in the Architectural Field meant, among other things, Durable, reliable and Long Standing. These attributes have been abandoned in today`s typical single family home construction. These virtues must be restored into the current construction vernacular for the long term s...
