It's not absurd to use dry wall.

I was unaware of this, actually. Bump it up on the awesome scale.

It's not absurdly deplorable to frame a room in drywall inner facing, but a rational thought process would not lead to its use as a finish to be painted. Museum finishing is far superior and durable.

Especially with a level 5 finish. That said, I prefer plaster.

Me too but I would say building your house is just like most things in life, namely you'll have to make some trade offs. I have no idea the costs but I'm sure plaster is multiples of drywall with a coat of plaster over top? I'd rather use the extra cash for some other upgrade, say real paver stones vs. that coated monstrosity plastic looking, faux stone decking I see around so many pools.

If you have to use materials made from polyvinyl chloride, rubber, and soy bio-plastics, you can't afford to build a home.

My humble cabin in the woods. No McMansion but plenty of natural materials and character. I'm afraid it's not terribly modern though. Natural light is the only kind we get as there is no power.

you can get many more suits if you use polyester instead of wool. not everyone wants to be limited to 5-10 suits at a time. by simply making a small trade off and using polyester instead you can afford several times that number.
