Before I self destruct from anger (styrofoam moldings, christ),
I'll just add that people should/could pay attention to the nature of their own houses.
If they are tract houses, which many of us have, don't faux them up.
Some tract houses by good builders are worth mucho in California.
I know, I know, people played with all this, back when I was first interested in architecture. And after that, all sorts of houses were ruined and featured in magazines.
Listen to your house, even if it is a tract place.
