Schult Homes....

3 posts in this topic

I have the opportunity to purchase a 1999 Schult Mfgr./Double Wide home. What do you guys have to say about the quality of these houses? It is a nice house but it also is on 1+ acre and has a fantastic insulated/heated shop. The price is also nice! Any help would be great. It also doesn't have a basement, but I've been told it is on a firm foundation and is mortgageable on the 2nd market. Any thoughts??

Id say if you like it, go for it!

Mfgr homes are so much better then they used to be.

I have one and have no problems with it. don't expect the quality parts such as windows/furnace/etc of a stick built, but there is nothing wrong with them. they are built indoors, so you don't have to worry about rain/etc getting in at the wrong time and creating mold. they are made to go down the road at 55 mph, not many stick built homes would withstand that!!! Mine isn't on a foundation, it's on footings. Not sure how big the one you are looking at it, but mine is 28 X 80. if you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me. rverdeck@earthlink.net there are many options for these and lots of things to look for. Mine happens to be for sale as well!!! I have a garage (2 stall), 30 X 54 shop/storage, a big hay shed I use for campers and 3 smaller animal buildings on 26 acres, so I've checked the market (in my area) so I know what things are going for. as far as financing, you shouldn't have a problem. I had no problem financing mine 8 years ago when I bought it, and was told that when they are on land like that, it's treated more like a regular house.

    • Yards lookin' good, boober! 
    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
