Thanks for the ideas. Rentals are not allowed in this park. This used to be a beautiful park but has really gone down hill in the last 10 years. And all over town parks in all price ranges are sitting on empty trailers and empty lots, some of them have hundreds of empty's. It's mostly due to the economy. Either people move in with relatives when things get tough or others like us buy places that end up being as cheap or cheaper than buying a trailer and paying lot rent. I doubt that we can pull this place out and keep it in tact. The best we might be able to do is sell it to someone who strips them down and ships them up north where some folks buy them to turn into hunting cabins. Hopefully all this is just worry for nothing. I don't even care if we have to give the thing away as long as we aren't on the hook for lot rent. If it is meant to be...

I just love your new house!!!! It is an American Four Square type and I have always wanted one.

And your kitchen is gonna be great, it is just the vintage type I love. Congrats on getting such a wonderful place and for having the wisdom to work with it rather than "modernize" it.

When we moved into the house the kitchen was the original 1950 complete with 9" nails holding the wood and formica units to the wall, with the help of my younger brother and a friend who can plumb we ripped it back to the plaster.The shape was difficult because of the doors and it is smaller than we were used to but we are proud of our work,I did the tileing

You did a very nice job, indeed! You designed you layout very well considering the limited space you have, especially fitting in the washer and dryer! The only major drawback I see is having very limited cabinet space. I also like the stainless steel oven/range unit.

Congratulations!
