This looks like a great place. I can’t believe it’s a manufactured home, is that correct? Great job on showcasing this home online. Sure looks like a lot of home for the price. I may need to consider this area for retirement myself.

Lynda; yes this is a manufactured home. It is pretty nice and the lot is one of the prettiest I have seen. The trees are what we call second growth.

My parents bought a double wide manufactured home when I was just out of high school. My dad was meticulous with taking care of it and it always looked (almost) like it did when it was new. Manufactured homes are an excellent choice for affordable housing!
