I always think that people know what I’m writing about because I know what I’m writing about. I forget that your frame of reference is a little different than mine.
Anyhow – our house “was” (love saying that) a mobile home on a permanent pier post foundation. We owned the land it was on and had the permanent foundation installed in order to quality for an FHA loan.
When we bought the house back in 2003, it was new and we had it moved to our lot and had the driveway put in. At that time tie down cables were not required. One of the changes since then, is that these cables are now required because of all the wind storms that Montana gets every Spring and early Summer. I don’t really understand how they are going to be installed but I know that there is drilling into concrete involved. If this had been done when the house was put on the lot, it would have been a much easier process.
Hope this makes sense.
