We look forward to the progress pictures too. You have plenty to keep you out of trouble for now.

Wow. Have you considered building a new structure? By the looks of it, the old one may need more work than it's worth.

But you're right, the land is gorgeous, and you will find lots of good help here! Good luck!

Good luck Carl
We will be around for sure ...plenty to do here.
The electrical panel cannot be in a closet for starters....just adding to your list.:D

InspectorD, I think the closet was a common place to put the panel box in a prefab house at one time. I used to live in a 1968 double wide and the electrical panel was in the back closet of the house.
