I actually thought about manufactured homes again today and was looking at floor plans on their website but I ended up back at my usual decision. I would rather have a site built home. Concrete on the floor and a quality building. It is possible to get a quality manufactured home but by the time you pay for all the upgrades it is on par with the cost of a site built (at least in this economy). The only plus side would be that they can deliver in 30 days and the biggest plus, they provide their own financing.
I suppose, if I have to, I can pay someone to come out and build me a 2 foot block wall with concrete footings to protect against snakes. Then I only have to worry about snakes coming in the gates. Oh I hate snakes...poisonous snakes that is. Maybe I should go buy some King snakes and let them loose under the mobile home. They could gang up on the rattler.
