We're pushing 70 and interested if anyone has any feedback on the Oaks of Rockford retirement community. Not sure of the quality of manufactured homes, but they are affordable and the operator, Zeman Homes, sounds reputable. Thanks for any input.

I'm a floor-plan addict, so I visited the Oaks website.
Something I wish Michigan builders would realize:
This is a cold climate. Put a foyer or airlock in between the living room and the front door! Otherwise, everytime someone comes in or out, a blast of arctic air hits you while you're on the sofa watching "Monk." Also, in none of the floor-plans was there a coat closet near the front door. That's a must.

Here's something they did get right:
A full-length front porch on all the models. That's the way you meet your neighbors and build community.

I realize my opinions don't provide you with your request for info about the builder, but I just couldn't hold back. Carry on!

I've got good money that says at the Oaks they're watching "Matlock".
