 Think It's To Expensive To Live At

The Beach? Check our progress.

 

PART TWO

 

 

In Part One we previewed a circa 1978 singlewide

mobilehome located in the quaint little beach

community of Leucadia, Cali. Truth be known we

purchased it with the intention of rebuilding it from

the frame up right from the start.

 

Remodeling it was not an option as it was far too old, full of dry rot, termites, mold, mildew and myriad structural issues which so many older trailers, mobilehomes and Manufactured homes are nowadays; especially 300 feet from the ocean.

 

Additionally, removing the entire home would have required that we  replace it with a much smaller Park Model RV (under 400sf) as a new HUD Manufactured Home would have had to meet all the setback requirements because the legal nonconforming structure had encroached on the existing ones.

 

In this phase we had to build a 12 inch wide by 12 inch deep footing and build a wood framed stem wall on top of the footing and all around the perimeter of the entire steel mainframe in order to support the new 2x6 replacement framing starting from the load bearing skirting wall and rim and floor joist system.

 

STRIPPED DOWN TO THE FRAME

 

Once the footing and the one course of block, mortar

and conctrete filled cells with anchor bolts was

monolithic-ally poured, set and dry my son, Scott

Arendsen, President of ON THE LEVEL

General & Manufactured Home contractors Inc.,

proceeded with the construction of the

2x6 floor joist system.

 

 

Then the rim joist were attached to the

lateral floor joist completing the floor system. 

 

 

 

It is now ready for the plastic vapor 

barrier (belly bladder) underlayment, 

 

 

 

floor insulation and 11/8" thick x 4x8

foot (screwed not nailed) plywood floor decking.

 

 

 From this point on it's pretty much just another site

built construction project. the sill plate is attached to

the anchor bolts and then the 2x6 engineered load

bearing skirting stem wall is installed.

 

 

 

That's enough to absorb for this exciting adventure. In

PART THREE we will be slinging sticks (constructing the

wall and truss roof system) which will take a week or two as the roof trusses will have to be built on the ground and fork lifted atop the wall framing system.
