next year i will be moving to 10 acres. That 10 acres has a 1985 mobile home thats bigger than the house i currently live in. I am not fond to the mobile only because the ceilings are only 7ft in height. I had thought about redoing the mobile home that is there with about 8,000. I have a guy who is very good on prices and who has built a mobile home from the ground up due to a fire. Meaning pitching the roof to about 10ft in the middle, new walls, new floors, new cabinets and such. and the 1985 there will be just the way i like it and the walls will not be paper thin. Then maybe bricking it in and add new siding for about another 7,000. Or I can search out a used/newer/repoed one for about 30,000 and will prolly only need very minor cosmetic work but may not be designed the way i would like. Then the cost to move it which cost about another 8,000 and then the cost to brick it in. Plus it will have thinner walls than the 1985 after demo. its more a matter of of looks and comfortability than money but of course money places a part just a small part. The 1985 is setup the way i would eventually buy one with the master bedroom on the other end of the house as the kids. pls let me have your opinions about what you would personally do.
