That's a terrible analogy. Once the foundation is poured you have greatly limited what kind of house you can have. One the frame is up and the roof on you have severely limited what changes are possible.
Is it really that different? How often do people suggest to simply rewrite the code because they don't trust the old foundation? Smile | :)

ZurdoDev wrote:
Software development should be nothing like building a house. In Software development you also have foundation and framing (standard UI controls, database access code) that is quick and easy to use AND easy to change out properties.
The fact that it is easy doesn't mean that there's no cost attached; there's the danger.

And a good developer will know how to modularize their code so that changes can be handled with the least amount of disruption.
Ofcourse, anyone who finds themselves with a brownfield has only themselves to blame Shucks | :-\

Plus you can start using software before it is even done. I don't want to move into a house before it is finished.
Funny, I wouldn't mind doing just that, but dislike the idea of incomplete software.
