Considering buying a very custom mobile home, thoughts?
My wife and I have found a property in upstate New York. It's a mobile home that was built in 1989, had an addition put on in 1998 and a major renovation over the past 3 years.
No soft spots but please advise on crawl space photos. The owner does not believe in venting the crawl space and the result was a wet mess. Luckily, he has 2x 2" rigid insulation and then the original looked intact, so the wood looks to be OK.
Here are the property spec list:
- 15 Acres of land, bordering several thousand acres of state park
- 4 Bedroom, 2 Bath, approx. 1,800 sqft
- New 50 year steel roof
- Fully insulated, heated 2 car detached garage
- 12x12 Cabin with electric and wood burning stove in woods
Crawl space findings:
The crawl space has 2 screened, vented doors that have been covered by the insulation. The owner had the insulation installed a few years ago but does not believe in venting it out, which shocked me.
Anyways, what do you think? I would appreciate overall thoughts on the property and price, as well as thoughts and advice on the crawl space. Thank you for any help!
