    the *EPIC* doublewide thread

    The size of this doublewide someone is moving is listed as "12,048 square feet". Well damn, I want one!

    It's a ten-story doublewide?

    I don't pretend to understand Brannigan's Law. I merely enforce it.

    Personally I've always wanted a vertical singlewide, 70 feet straight into the air.

    I deduced that the home is probably 25' x 50'.

    Could you imagine how many dogs could live under a trailer that size....

    Not to mention the sheer volume of cars on blocks and broken washers you'd have to wrangle to go around it.

    One could store nearly a month's worth of empty beer bottles under a dwelling of those impressive dimensions. I would be interested in seeing if an enormous pyramid of 12,048 sq ft double wides could be stacked/constructed......and then try to race monster trucks up to the top!
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Cousin Jim must have hit good with the scratchoffs this year.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Dealing with “manufactured homes” is definitely new to me. Up in Chicagoland, it seemed that most suburbs didn’t allow them (and haven’t allowed them for many years), so they were generally located in unincorporated areas in the counties. The Texas city I work for, there are several manufactured homes and manufactured home neighborhoods, many of which were formerly located in unincorporated areas but brought into the city as part of mass annexations over the years. They are generally only allowed as part of larger manufactured home developments that must meet a series of requirements, but there are several other older manufactured homes scattered throughout the city that are legal nonconforming.
