Thread: Manufactured Homes - Can you remodel them?

    You don't like the gas fireplace? I think they are really the way to go, rather than wood. A friend has one in Her house and I was surprised how well they work. Wood is a PIA to deal with, especially if you're in a wheelchair.

    Wood pellet is a good option but lugging bags of pellets around can be a hassle. And the pricing on them has increased significantly, at least around here they have.

    I can agree that wood is rough, but I like the work. Most times I can use my power chair to wheel the wood in and stack it on a rack. Cutting up logs is a challenge that is doable as long as they're aren't too big in diameter. If I had to use just my wheelchair, yeah buddy, that would be a dealbreaker. I imagine as I get a lot older, gas would be the go to heat choice. Just not enamored with it right now.

    V- I don't care much for the pellet stove. One reason I like the wood stove is because its not electricity - dependent. Power in the country goes out quite a bit in winter. I'll eventually get a whole house generator, but that's not in the budget right now. Where you are though, yeah, I can see how a pellet stove makes sense.
