I just signed the papers on a foreclosed double wide that i won at an auction.

i signed the paper work Thursday night, and had it pretty much gutted by Friday afternoon.

tax value on the property is about $57,000. I payed $24,000 for it.
It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath sitting on a little more that a half acre with a 20x28 building.
I have some pictures of how it looked before i started the demo on it..

all new flooring all new drywall appliances cabinets, bathrooms. will be done hopefully first week of December. I will add new pictures after we get different stages done.

That's pretty nice looking from the start, most of the forecloseures I have looked at are dumps and former crack dens.

Good Luck with the re-do and enjoy the new home.

Looks like that place will spiff right up. How much property did you get and where do you plan on putting the shooting range?

Wood shop looks pretty cool, kinda weird that it is up on blocks, frikken cool that it is powered though. Just need an old couch, beer fridge....wait a minute, is that A/c hanging off the front of it?....coooool...you got yourself a supreme "doghouse"...

the front by the steps is washed out, that was from a few years with out gutters. i will be filling it in more next spring.

there is a little over a 1/2 acre. There is already a shooting range right next to the property that a friend of mine owns. It is about 133 yard and it is down in a small valley.

the building is on blocks due to the yard slopes down.
A/C already installed, but not really sure if it works. Has I think 100 amp serviced ran into it.

That my ARFCOM friend is what I call a "steal."
In my professional opinion, it looks like something happens... and then something different happens... and then shit fucks up and he fucking crashes.

Well, maybe back to back. But I gotta tell you, I'm not 100% on this.

I figgered the blocks were because of the slope, just not something I am used to seeing, but things are different up here with the freezing and stuff like that. Cool deal on the nearby range. Are you doing the remodel yourself? The house looks like it is begging for a huge deck.

I am jealous of the shop....I have one, but unfortunately it is also the garage and the wife has this incredible urge to park her rig in there and I can seem to make her see that my tinkering is of greater importance than her car being toasty warm.

Looks like you got a great deal. I can't wait to see the progress pics.

Heck, the former owners even left some of the appliances. Hopefully they did not dump a dead body in the septic system.

It looks like a moduler/pre-fab, not a double wide.

But you still got it for a steal!

Keep up with the pics!

What are your plans for the foundation?

I live in a manufactured house, and plan on jacking it up, splitting it, and building a basement below it.

Wow, that's awesome... I wish I could get something like that around here for less than 400k

I think the place will look great by the time you're done.

Had Sears come by today and give me a quote for new windows, They wanted almost $8500 dollars for 9 windows installed. I about fell over think i can do all of them for about $1500.

found someone who will put them in for $60 a window.

may have to put off most of them except the fout front window, three of them a broken.
