Buying Double Wide
Hopefully Monday will reveal to us that HUD has accepted our bid on a foreclosed double wide mobile home. The house is on a permanent brick foundation on 1 acre of land in SC.
Anyway, this would be the first time I have ever owned a mobile home. While the house is essentially in move in condition, there are some changes we want to make.
First of all, it has a small double sided fireplace between the living room and den. We want to remove it and replace it with a more efficient fireplace we can use to heat the house during the winter (and place the new fireplace in the corner, not the middle of the room). Is this advisable? Removing the fireplace would make for a very nice open "great room".
Secondly, I have been reading some in the forum about tiling. Since the house is on a permanent foundation, can we tile the bathrooms and the back entry/laundry room?
Finally, what about hardwoods? We want to remove all of the carpet and replace with hardwoods. Can we do "real" hardwoods, or do we need to stay with laminates?
Thanks for any advice,
