Hi, everyone. We are currently considering purchasing a '96 DW on a full poured concrete basement on 8.5 acres. We really didn't want a MH but finances and circumstances currently may dictate otherwise. An older woman lives there (her DH died several years ago) and she has not done a thing (including possibly cleaning!) since he died so things like the deck and covered porch he began are at a point that they need replacing. Other things it would need are new floor coverings where carpeting currently is, new sinks, faucets, etc. Other than these things though, it's a decent home on a nice 8.5 acres. My questions are: Can a DW be remodeled like a regular stick-built home? Can you use regular kitchen cabinets or would these be too heavy for the MH walls to support? Can you take out/remove walls to change floor pattern? Can you make window and door openings larger if you correctly header them so that you can put in more or larger windows/doors? Any other advice on MH's would be appreciated as we don't have much experience with them. I know most ppl don't really like them, but as I said above, current circumstances (and extremely overpriced local real estate market) may dictate that we go this way. Thanks!
