Does anyone know anything about these houses?

Heike has the idea of living in one not me, but her and Jürgen sometime in the future. I think they are crazy.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

They are just like Park Homes in UK really. A Friend of our lives in one near Grantham, Lincolnshire, they have had it for many years and are still happy with it.

Thats what I thought, not a stick of wood to be seen and I hate the stuff they´ve made the furniture from, just like a caravan or motorhome . All so clinical looking.

Where do you get the "easy to heat" bit from?

We bought a mobile home some years ago for our boys to live in the garden: despite insulation, double glazing and radiator-central-heating it was hot in summer (heating off, obviously) and cool in winter, with large Calor-gas bills.

We are now looking to replace it with a granny annexe for us: I think a "temporary" structure would suffice [will we outlast its 30y lifetime?] and be quicker to erect, cheaper and not require planning consent. My good lady believes in bricks and mortar.

Thats what I told her Gordon and especially as there seems to be so much glass.

She says its for sometime in the future so hopefully they will have come to their senses before then.

Trouble is with park homes I think you are beholden to the will of the landowner and their rules regs and of course whatever they decide to charge you year on year and not always cheap to run.

We used to stay in a lovely pine lodge on Arran over Christmas and new year which had proper central heating and it was absloutely fantastic. Dead warm and cosy. I think it went on the market for £200k which I thought was a lot but you pay for the location. I would rather own the land though and have it plumbed in to the mains for gas and electric.

I would live in one. I would live in the van. Well I have.

Do a search for modular homes in New Zealand just for fun, some really great designs.
