shoe molding that protrudes past door casing

3 months ago

We requested these flat modern 7 inch baseboards but had no idea they would put shoe molding on. We do not want shoe molding. It looks like a cheap afterthought to the beautiful baseboards and flooring. And, even if we wanted it, shouldn’t it die into the casing? I thought casing was the trim that stood out farthest and baseboards and trim end flush into it. These pieces of wood look ridiculous. Thoughts from any carpenters? Shoe molding sticking out like this can’t be standard on a 3 million dollar house.
