@ibrad And you can still get mobile homes - especially the little park model ones - fully kitted out from the factory with appliances, furniture, bedsheets, plates, towels, silverware, etc. Drop it on your lot, connect utilities, done.
A bit of hammering and prybar and the gutter is gutter-shaped enough to work and put the somehow-survived-but-fell-off leafguard back on. At some point I need to get about 1.3 shingles (as in all of 4 tabs) to mend the very edge where it tore off, but it should be fine to get rained on the next few days; no exposed wood or paper, just the layer of shingles underneath (thanks, whoever did this roof last...) and a little exposed top-of-drip edge. It'll get mended before winter, when it would present a nice spot for ice to creep back up.
@pip-bip proof that the Atlantic is not a sufficient barrier to protect Britain from the worst American trends indefinitely. Sooner or later, they'll have brodozers with obnoxious light bars cluttering up the Sainsbury parking lots
@roadkilled Ok, the floors are weird as shit. I kinda get what they were going for though... despite being a massive fuck job to keep clean, I actually really like most of the spaces... and though I hate the floors from a management and comfort standpoint, I appreciate the balls it took to actually build this and live in it.
I feel you 110%. We live in a single wide trailer with a big fenced in yard with a lot of shrubs that I couldn't care less about. Our grass is spotty and trashed thanks water run off issues and dogs deciding they like to pee in one 3x4 spot that kills anything we try to grow.
We need to remulch the yard, put in new windows, finish up painting and latticing my deck, along with a bunch of little projects that kill me to do because I know we aren't keeping this place for a long time. I know it'll help sell the place in the end, but for now it feels like throwing money out the window (pun intended).
