Yes, but only if you are standing on as puddle of water. What's the matter with you?

Jeanne, you might not like my answer but I do not think it is a good idea. 3 bedroom sharing one bath is a NO NO. It will be hard to sell with this layout. Most buyers want a separate master bath room and not share it. ... more

Hello. I have used them in long large bedrooms to divide space. They have served there purpose and did work. But keep in mind, they are not fixed and can move and may be safety issues depending on the age of people living in the house. Before we sold the house and relocated, we changed it back to the original state. However I have never used them for common living areas. In those areas I have made defined areas with furniture, carpets or a combination.
I hope this helps and if you need to ask more questions, please feel free to contact me at 813-545-5711.

It's good, but it costs more. With new homes you have access to walls with no dry wall, are you removing drywall? If so you can use it easily.

Hello Allison,
If you purchase in the right area and most importantly at the right price and renovate the home, you are adding more value to the home, therefore you should be able to sell it at a profit. Their are foreclosures, shortsales, etc. abound, and there are many opportunities abound to make money in this market. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to me.

Thank you,

Hi Ms. K,

First of all, a plumber will likely be able to best address your plumbing-specific questions, but from what I have been told, CPVC (different than PVC) is currently the best type of piping. I would also recommend contacting a few new insurance companies to obtain estimates with your current polybutulene set-up.

I wish you the best!

Take care,

Lynn Brock answered:
Susan 14504, your query does not provide whether this mobile home is stationary (tied down to a pad) or you'll be pulling it behind a truck.

Typically to re build a stationary mobile home is nearly the same cost as purchasing a used one and replace the old one.

Either way, try connecting with an Recreational Vehicle dealer in your area.

Good luck,

Ron Thomas answered:
How much would a new car cost?

How long is a piece of wood?

Do you actually think that we could give you a number based on the information you've provided, and without even seeing the house?

We are not even Contractors!
We are Realtors.

Why don't you try the Yellow Pages under Contractors and invide a few estimates?

Good luck and may God bless

Bill Eckler answered:

Before considering the cost of doing this type of improvement it would be recommended to investigate whether or not your project is something that can be done from a code perspective and structurally.

Some areas have restriction on the type of acceptable costruction and regulate it closely. If you have the land area available, perhaps it would be good to investigate a ground level addition as well as a second story one.

Good luck,

Bill Eckler answered:

Too many people are continuing to view home ownership as an truly should but there comes a point when you need to evaluate things from a more practical position. Would this improvement improve your family's quality of life? Is this something that could be accomplished without creating a financial hardship?

The reality is that by doing these additions you will likely not be able to recover all of the money invested but there is something much grander involved that you should never lose sight's tough to place dollar signs on happiness.

Good luck,

Antonio Vega-Pacheco answered:
Yes, there are several. Your best 2 sources of information are:

1. Contact your electric power supplier and talk to customer service, they will give you all up to date info.
2. Talk to your accountant, he/she should know which programs have expired and which are active.
