Further Information


  1. Hi,

    How about a real challenge for your designer staff/ Do over my manufactured home.

    I have not seen any designers do this and it would be a great article as many parks are for seniors only and many of us can not longer do all of the DIY projects outselves. It would be a creative project for any staff member. Also cost and small size would have to be an unusual project than others.
