What a beautiful home! I hope the one you choose brings you happiness. This is such a wonderful place. We have several friends who live near where you are looking. Their homes are just beautiful too.

Mine had shelving all around and I stored the lawn mower, seasonal ornaments, and other large tools there. There's no reason you couldn't insulate and drywall the interior without needing ARC permission. It would be nice. As far as the venting goes, the wall in my shed with the washer and dryer abutted the wall of the hall bath inside. If an A/C contractor could somehow extend the ductwork from inside, you also wouldn't need permission.

Check to see if the gray pipes have been replaced in any manufactured homes you're considering. I needed to get mine re-plumbed (around $600 but that was 7 years ago and it was only a 1000 sf house).

SOOO glad you mentioned that, you just saved us a potential huge mistake. We put an offer down a couple of hours ago and it was accepted. But I'd totally forgotten to ask about that, and already arranged a flight down for a physical inspection and to give the deposit if it passes the inspection. Booked a hotel room too - but if the agent says the grey pipes haven't been replaced, I can cancel the flight and the room and save a thousand bucks and 3 days of time.

Shouldn't be a deal breaker, maybe just a negotiating tool?

I don't think you will have a problem. I do not know the owner at all but I can tell you the house is a Diamond. We went during the first Open House. Good Job. Good house. Nice neighbors. Not to much traffic. Your gonna be fine.

The only problem will be keeping it up to the shape it's in now, just about perfect. Happy for you.

Yeah we would hope, but they came down in price as low as they were willing to go (we had a little back and forth and came up significantly from our initial offer). It's such a sweet looking home too. But they're looking for a quick closing (in less than 3 weeks!) so if it needs the plumbing repiped, it could result in a setback.

On the other hand, we could remind them that if it does in fact need repiping, it's not likely they'll find a buyer willing to pay what we offered, and NOT have them repipe it. So they should just accept our offer and the contingency and save themselves some trouble. Right???

Hm, I didn't post any pictures. ColdNoMore posted a picture of the portable air conditioner he used (we have a similar one, and I do remember now we don't have to put a whole board up, we have that sliding plastic piece with the hole for the vent tube. We originally had the unit in a room that had push-out windows, and couldn't use that plastic piece, and had to remove the glass completely and replace it with a board with a hole in it).
