Re: How tall is the inside of our mobile home.

Our home is kind of a mix; we have 7' ceilings in half the home (a hallway, bathroom, laundry area and in the two bedrooms) and a tall, peaked ceiling in the living and kitchen areas. Our home is from the 1980's, an Astro.

Re: Amazingly cheap particle board floor

Also, many mobile homes are built with the floor joist running lengthways to the home instead of side to side, These are the homes i see with the worst problems of the floor edge bending down. I've never seen a MH with floor joists running lengthways, learn something new everyday. What holds them u...

Thanks for all your work Greg! It's not just this group, either; I belong to many Yahoo groups and everyone seems to be under attack. Sign of the bad economic times everywhere, I guess!

Re: Finished insulated skirting just in time!

Great job, thanks for the photos and description! You have snow already?!? What's up with that? We're in VT and none yet (not that I'm complaining, mind you!)

Re: Earthquake in VT

It could be delivering in Mud Season :shock: We found out it was in lower Maine, over 150 miles away. It was a bit scary, but no damage done.

Earthquake in VT

Hey! I was just sitting here reading the repair forum when the table shook, the windows rattled and I called out to hubbs in the living room (I was at my computer in the bedroom) "Did you feel that?" He did, and we called my sister and her hubby next door - they felt it, too. Just submitted a report...

Re: Biggest window size that's "safe"?

Good points! When we actually get some windows, I will ask at the Town Clerk's office if they can point me in the right direction. I think I misunderstood what you meant by building inspector. I was thinking of the so-called professional home inspector who works for the banks, making sure the place ...

Re: Biggest window size that's "safe"?

Greg S., no proposed renovation yet in the works - just "kickin the tires." Would you believe I didn't know you had to have a building inspector ok window replacement? Yes, you probably would :) But seriously, if I see a deal on a nice window too good to pass up, I may ask hubby if we can get it, st...

Re: Biggest window size that's "safe"?

:D Awesome, thanks folks! Since we have the lengthwise joists, and not much to support the outer walls, I am thinking the larger windows would be limited to maybe two, but was expecting to have to rebuild the wall anyway. These walls are mush under each current (metal) window, and are most likely ma...
