hmm doesn't look like its on piers and skirted at all does it??

if that truly is a mobile its sure does not look like it to me. This is what was said....


I or anyone in the home building industry can tell the difference between modular and mobile from the street without ever having to get out of their car. A modular will be dropped directly on slab or foundation. A mobile will sit on piers and will be skirted. This is the case 100% of the time. Bar none.

Thanks for posting that pic. It took me less then one second to identify it as an Oak Creek Mobile Home where you can find that exact model down in Sayerville or Freehold. Didn't the 14' deep home tip you off? It looks like it's 14' deep. 28' deep is what they call a double wide.

But your right. No skirting. How did they do that? You cant remove the I-beams structure or it will collapse. Did they cut a groove in the cement slab? That is the damndest thing.


You are also right that mobile homes are not allowed in most places in NJ. There are very few areas zoned for mobile homes. And they are usually dumpy with low income people. That house dont fit the bill as far as well kept and all but it spells mobile home all over it.

Did you say where this house was? Whats the rest of the street look like? That is really strange though. They must have dropped that mobile home before there was zoning ordinances because that just would not fly in todays strict building standards.

This is what I have been trying to tell you desert... They can do a real find job at hiding a mobile around here in jersey. This was similar to the one we were going to buy but it has larger and had an add on sun room and garages... And in Delran, NO mobiles are zoned.. yet sure as hell its there..

LOL..easy one! But the other one I posted was in Jacksonville. And in NJ..Mobile homes are very common in Warren County. They have a few developments for 55 and over that are mobile homes.

hmm. this one is tricky.
officially, a mobile home has a metal frame and a trailer hitch and wheels.. and no engine.. lol
and a modular is permanently affixed to the ground.

so....

Neither! its a trick question.

TO get back to the original question, my folks built a modular near Tuckerton. The total cost was $260k, $35k of which was in the land, so ~$225k for the home/septic/permits, etc. Its a very nice house, ~2,000 sq. ft.

Default I bought from Supreme Modular Homes

I built my home last year and bought from Supreme Modular Homes in Turnersville, NJ. I have to say that they made the whole experience a pleasure and we are really happy in our new home. Their website is www.suprememodular.com. I paid ~$90 per sq/ft complete with central heating and AC.

Good luck.

$90 is on the high side... alot depends on the style of home, and what options you'd want.

I read your post and seen your parents built near Tuckerton - we recently just bought ground in that area and want to build a modular - who did they use if you know and what was the name of their contractor - did they have any problems with the township and did they have to have a well put in?
Thanks for any info you can give LBI kid
