Some homes located away from areas near water have basements. Due to our high ground water table newer homes are generally not built with basements. Single-wide mobile homes are placed on lots and the piers under the trailer are secured to the ground and shirting is installed around the bottom of the trailer. Double-wide trailers can also be placed in the same fashion or will sometimes be placed on a block foundation.

There is a large development of new single family homes in Millsboro that all have basements. It is Plantation Lakes.

Typically, no. Due to our high water table, most homes are built on a concrete block foundation. Double-wide mobile homes are usually on a concrete block foundation, although some can be found on concrete block piers. Most interestingly, homes near tidal waters can often be found perched high on top of huge wood pilings, including stick-built, double-wides and single-wides.
