Curled shingles that are very hard to press back down!

Hello yet again my fellow MH dwellers, We live in Michigan, so we get snowy winters and lots of rain in the spring. We thought we fixed our leaky window, caulked it outside only but that didn't help. Hubby nailed down some 'curled or lifting' shingles above the window, and for a few days the rain di...

Looks awesome!

I have a porch I'm going to screen in this summer, your 'foam for stuffing the rafter holes' was a real inspiration to me for ideas. I've been wondering how to plug those darn holes in my own porch. I thought I would have to cut wood to fit into the gaps. The foam looks very nice, did you put a dab ...

My husband went 3 months once without a smoke, but he kicked these huge steel toed work boot dents all over into the side of our car while trying cold turkey. Then he lit up again - said it wasn't worth the rage he felt, he's one of the sweetest calmest men on earth, and to see him transform into so...

Thank you two very much for the advice and input. My husband went up on the roof, in the rain no less to look at the roof, shingles, look for holes, cracks, etc. like you guys said. He said the shingles in some areas are slightly curled up, making the water 'pool up' in the shingle itself. He hammer...

Leaky Window Advice ?

Hi Everyone, The water comes from the top of the window, and the water seems to be running along the 2x4 or 4x4 stud and the white metal window frame on the inside of the window. The white metal seems to be gaped slightly away from the wood. The water follows the metal on a down slope into the cente...

RE: Planting Tobacco

Hi Dean, While planting your own smoke sounds good and easy, it isn't. Pests are highly attracted to the leaves, so you would need to fight off the pests with some kind of natural remedy - no chemicals because you would then smoke the chemicals you treated the leaves with. Natural remedies for garde...

RE: Electric Fireplaces 50% off

We went to Lowe's today and bought a $1,200.00 electric fireplace for $329.00 because it was the 'display' model and ALL of them were marked way down there. We just finally finished settling it into the living room, and it's beautiful (doesn't heat worth a poo but looks great). I'll put up a photo a...

RE: It's almost tax time! Whoohoo!

Wow Julie, That does seem like a huge mess to deal with :( I noticed this winter that I had ice and mold starting in my window sills - and my MH is only a 1995 or around there. Have to love how MH manufacturers skimp to save a buck, and we end up paying for it. >.< I myself am looking into gutters f...

RE: Looking for advise on re leveling a mobile home.

I take it you don't live in a MH community like I do, perhaps you could knock on some doors of mobile home owners who live near you - and ask them if they know the names of any MH movers or people who relevel mobile homes. I know, sorta sucky advice lol I'd be to shy to knock on a strangers door and...
