Found this website by searching for "red tile backsplash" or something of that nature. I haven't been to much of the website but so far, I love everything I have seen.

We are thinking about buying a doublewide and "gutting" it! The roof is salvagable (did I spell that right? LOL) and the wall studs and floor studs (or is it joists? please forgive me for not knowing the correct terms) are good. If we were to buy the wood (studs) for the walls and floors and the roof, we would be paying more than what we could buy this doublewide for!! I am excited!!

We are waiting to hear from this guy who might move it for us. If he can, then it will be a done deal!! I am getting excited!!

Any advice? Just want to say Hi? Well, hi and I welcome any advice!

Just have a knowledgeable and licensed electrician install or at least supervise the wiring of the structure. If your walls & roof are sound, there are few mistakes that could be made that are as life-threatening as electrical mistakes could be.

Well, we did it!! I was so scared!! I just knew it was going to tip over going around the corner!! But our friends got it there safe and sound.

My husband is capable of doing most of the work. We will have someone dig a well and septic tank and get a certified electrician.
