Digging a footer for an existing mobile home
I'm thinking of putting in an offer for a mobile home that is on the channel of a lake. The realtor who is my cousin said they will not loan on the place because there is no footer. So Im thinking of cashing in my stock, buying it and doing some repairs. My question is when I go to pour a footer how deep would I need to be in Northern Indiana for a footer? Could I dig a 12" hole and make concrete pillars? This would be the easiest because I dont think I would have to pull the place off the lot to dig an actual footer. The moble Home will have to stay because if I put up another one the new codes come into effect which would prevent several options.
