Do I need new piers?

Post by Theflyinggiraffe » Tue Jun 25, 2019 11:02 am

HI, thank you so much for any insight! I have a 1994 single wide. One side of the home is about 12 inches off the ground and the other side is about 4 feet (sloped lot). The part that is several feet off the ground has old piers on top of 2 sets of two cement blocks (about 1 inch x 12 inch) and then there is about an 8-10 inch piece of wood on top of pier and the home is sitting upon it. Around the perimeter, I can fit my fist in between the perimeter piers and the home-they are just under the insulation and not touching anything other than bellywrap. There are no tie downs. Is this safe? Is it worth $2700 to get the home on the FHA approved piers and anchoring system? Thank you!
