Brenda: Yes, the installation will be for later in the spring. I thought about completely removing the old stuff and going with all new material. Any suggestions regarding a complete re-do of insulation and belly wrap is appreciated. JD: The removal of the sill plate (bottom plate) expedited the rem...

Should I Insulate My PEX Piping?

I'll be running new PEX under the joists, yet above the belly wrap and insulation. I'm considering The 6' pieces of tubular insulation over my PEX. Mark's book says to NOT insulate the piping.

Re: New MH Kitchen Photos

That is beautiful! That's exactly what I want to do with my rentals, but I can't. People just tear things up. If I ever retire to where I live in a MH, I'll do one from the ground up. Very nice job DCDiva!

Re: Hello! First Post; Removal of Particle Board Flooring

Why do you think I'd need to re-level? Is this something you had to do on your MH? Just curious.

Re: How Do I Install New Vent in Bathroom Ceiling?

Thanks JD. Do you use Tremco Vulkem 116 behind the flanges when installing windows, too?
