Re: Bathroom Floor

Thank you, that's a good idea, I may give that a try!

Bathroom Floor

I've been reading a bit about the paper bag flooring and was pondering giving it a try in the master bath. Has anyone had experience with this in a mobile? My daughter's partner was afraid it would be a nightmare to remove if I ever wanted to do so. One of the maintenance people here suggested I rip...

Re: Skirting Vents?

Thank you, ponch, I'll get some belly repair material just in case, it's probably good to have some on hand, I would think.

I can empathize about the videos, they would be great to have, but the learning curve is steep. I'm just thankful to have people here to answer questions.

Re: Skirting Vents?

Thanks ponch, I'm going to have someone get under there and look. Neither the shower or sink in that bathroom froze, but the shower is on an inside wall, so I found it a bit interesting, and given all I've learned on this forum, I may be under there taking a peek too. The wind was fierce against tha...

Re: Skirting Vents?

If this was the coldest on record, and it was still warmer by 10-15 degrees than where I lived before, I can deal with it!

Re: Skirting Vents?

An update to this post now that I survived the winter. One thing I noticed only after the vented skirting was installed had to do with my floors. In the first weeks I had noticed my kitchen floor felt *sticky* and I mopped, and mopped again, nothing helped. After the vented skirting was installed, t...

Re: Carport?

I'll be getting my roof rake soon, I don't want to be caught without one, but there is no way I am getting on the roof, so I need to find someone in the event they are snowed in and I need the roof cleared. As long as there isn't a snowstorm when I get the call my daughter is in labor..the rest of t...

Re: Carport?

I watched the weather here most of last winter. I'm definitely used to snow. After the Valentine's day blizzard in 2007, when they finally managed to get the streets clear, snowbanks were piled to the roof of my front porch. The town had to put snow in dump trucks and haul it out of town because the...

Re: Carport?

200 inches of snow? I guess that means I need to keep the roof rake close at hand. I knew it would be worse here, but that's almost more than I bargained for! Thank you, Greg!

Carport?

I'm thinking about adding a carport to my home. My question is, given I am in central NY and winter will be cold and snowy, will I be giving up any heat by shading 22 feet of the side where the sun beats all day. There are no windows where the carport would be located, and after some thinking about ...

Re: Skirting Vents?

Great points, ponch! The thing I noticed, is none of the homes in the community have vented skirting, when we replaced mine, there was one vented panel in the front, not even the minimum for adequate venting, thankfully everything looks good underneath.

Re: Skirting Vents?

From what we saw looking under the home several times, that shouldn't be an issue where I am, the park has done an excellent job with drainage. Yes, it does get humid here in the summer to some extent, and having lived in the northeast all my life, rare is the summer where it lasts for weeks at a ti...
