I purchased 4 acres of rural land in Nassau County. Florida for 30 grand. I paid cash. There was a free 1973 mobile home on this property that looked like it came from a third world country. A young contractor volunteered to fix it for 20 grand. It was high, but we went for it. He made it liveable and comfortable as a weekend escape from the stress of Jacksonville. It is not fancy, but it is relaxed and fun. Your mag has taught me a great deal about our place, and I really appreciate you. Thank you so much. Keep up the good work!
Thank you so much for commenting. It really is amazing what can be done with an older mobile home.
