Most houses I think of as poorly designed tend to be flawed in their detailing: inconsistencies that make or break a design. I'm thinking of things that bulge or dent, materials that are not aligned, weather stains under windows, etc.

Sometimes this is due to the incapacity of the designer/draftsperson, but more often it is the construction worker that causes the flaw. This is either because his uncaring nature or his inability to turn paper plans into reality (which is where the inability of the designer to draft makeable details comes in...)

so I'd say proper details and good communication is most important.
