Default Looking for older homes built by Jim Walter Homes

I am trying to find older models of homes built by Jim Walter homes in the greenville area. I just want to see how they look after 10 years or so of living. Please let me know if you have any ideas about how to find these custom homes that they built. The company themselves only shows brochures.

Thanks very much!

Default Older Jim Walter homes

I have Jim Walters home that was built in the sixes and is still in good shape. It's a small one bedroom built on piling 8 feet above groung level. The lower level has been enclosed and a bedroom and bath have been added. This house was built to look like a log cabin with rounded horizonal boards on the outside.
I have tried to find replacemet wood for the outside with no luck. If anyone knows where to locate this type of wood please let me know.

I live in a Jim Walter Home that was built in 1985. I purchased it as a foreclosure and have done some renovations. The home is on a crawl space and is structurally sound. I love the floor plan (approx. 1803 sq.ft).

Dear "Cute",
I never had a copy of the floor plan. I'm sure there are similar floor plans in Jim Walter brochures, however, they have gotten out of the home building business and are now concentrating on their energy divisions. The floor plan would not help you with an addition anyway. What you need is a contractor that has some design experience and a copy of the floor plan that you are planning the addition on, so that you can integrate the traffic flow and maintain the integrity of the existing structure. You want the addition to appear to have always been there and not to stick out like a sore thumb. I now live in Florida but I still have a Home Builders license in AL where I use to design/build custom homes for my customers. I also have a real estate license in Alabama and Florida.

I live in a Jim Walter house and would like some info about it. It's about 800 sq ft and had a carport (which is enclosed now). Three small bedrooms, one bath, retangular build. I saw an old ad and it looks like what was called "The Country Squire". Does anyone know about this plan? Thanks!
