Taking to Reddit, a number of social media users expressed their frustration at the "fakeness" of Instant Dream Homes. One person summed it up: "Can we talk about how fake Instant Dream House is?

"The changes that are being made to these houses and yards require planning permission, permits to be pulled, HOA approvals, etc. There's no way these things can happen without the homeowner being aware of it."

Another agreed, writing: "They break something almost every episode on purpose. They literally put a random plywood box on that forklift and dropped/destroyed it on purpose then brought in the actual nice finished project by crane. Literally any half-brained person in construction would have just put ramps down for that."

A third said: "All I know is I would be so [expletive] if I signed up for a show and then discovered that they did my house in 12 hours without any actual input from me. I do appreciate the 'planning' and 'trial' sessions the team does but I still think it's all [expletive]."
