I used to work at a carpet store but my MH just has bare wood floors. We have dogs and a teenager who rides 4-wheelers and works on cars for fun. You might consider putting a layer of Floor Paint down. I prefer enamel. You can wash it easy and it will help keep the splinters down. For the marriage l...

The cheapest I would demo a mobile home for is $500 The cheapest I could get one moved across town is about $450 I agree with the newspaper idea.... You can have it, you got to move it. Habitat for Humanity are snobs and have lots of rules to go by, so they won't take it. Run an ad saying... you can...

The biggest contributors are electrical problems due to overloading circuits.
2nd - Space heaters being too close to material.
3rd - Cooking fires

You might run an ad in the paper looking for MH windows. I tear down houses and mobile homes. I have a couple of windows in my yard.

Check with some local demolition contractors in your area. Also measure the sizes of the windows and make sure the glass aint broke and the windows slide good.

The Water is different is every place. It could be minerals built up on the internal components, or just the thing is worn out, causing leakage.

Frost Heave? The only frost we have is on
the car windows. It usually thaws by 9 AM

In the Arkansas Delta, the soil is very soft.
The trick is to balance the weight in the mobile home,
so the whole house sinks evenly.

Our neighbor did not vent the dryer to outdoors because they were afraid rats would come in the hole. This same neighbor always had breathing problems, probably cause the dryer lint flying around the house. Having as few bends as possible is also good for maintenance. That is to say, once or twice a...

In Arkansas the Mobile Home Commission has a booklet they will mail, that has the basic requirements for setting up a mobile home. Every house is a little bit different so check your local codes. One thing people overlook is setting blocks under the entry doors. Then the door dont shut right and it ...

My Black Lab was good at getting rid of moles. An older dog is too lazy to dig at random. Let the dog hang out and relax, then let her dig up the rodent.

I agree. One sheet of OSB aint heavy, but several sheets are very heavy. If you go to a store that sells lumber, you can find a variety of paneling now days. Some looks like tile, some looks like that Mossy Oak Pattern, or you can go for the old fashioned woodgrain look. It is usually $10 to $15 per...
