    Quick Employee Housing Ideas

    The farmhouse had a fire in the diesel furnace and has fire damage beyond repair. I'm thinking a nice used double wide manufactured home might be a good idea. unfortunately do not have the time right now to build a log home.
    If there are any other ideas I'm all ears.
    PS- This isn't my house, it'll be for an employee and his family.
    Thanks!

    As much as I hate trailer houses, that's the cheap, quick, fix. While I never wanted to spend 20 years in ours, the ugly trailer has been very serviceable. For an employee, I'd think you would want something prettier than ours but for family, a little junky trailer is just fine.
    Every time I have strayed from the teachings of Skip Ellsworth it has cost me money.

    That's exactly what I would do.

    Make it four votes. I can't think of anything faster than that option.

    For cost efficiency in both purchase and moving it to the property, I'd go with a long single wide. They are also easier to sell and move off the property...
