The one we passed up......


Just for a giggle..here is one we DIDN'T choose!! :cÞ

I'd be afraid it would blow over in the wind!!!

****NOTE**** I have received email by people offended at the fact this pic says "redneck highrise". The pic CAME to me in email with the title. I didn't put it there. Just because you live in a trailer doesn't mean you ARE a redneck, DH and my two sons and I lived for TEN YEARS in a single wide trailer and they are some of the happiest years of my life. Please don't be offended. Learn to laugh at life! It's good for the soul :c)

Freda said...

Wow, that is high. Not a chance that I would live in that.

Ila said...

Whoo, that first step's a doozy! Glad you made it through your journey safely

Tracey in CT said...

Wow. I've never seen THAT before. Just a wee bit too scary for me!!

Quilt Memories said...

YEP!!! You would definately know you were a redneck if you lived there!!!!! I thought I had been most everywhere around here, obviously not, I WOULD HAVE REMEMBERED THAT!!!!

Mrs. Goodneedle said...

Hey, there's a lot of storage space underneath...

anne bebbington said...

mmmm It looks like an oversized coal chute! You would be certain of plenty of under-floor ventilation

Dawn said...

I just don't understand why you didn't take this one! Your very own highrise!

Ebony said...

This one's just begging for a tornado!

hehe

schnoobie said...

certainly affordable!!!quite the up(!)grade from the single wide you probably had "back in the day"...however... one unfortunate encounter with a silver bullet liquified redneck on a four wheeler could compromise the architectural engineering of your foundation.............maybe...

Good choice there, Bonnie! Somebody had a vision lol.

Quilt Pixie said...

lots of air conditioning! :-)

Quilt Memories said...

Me again, is that clothes hanging on a line (or something ) underneath? I guess one good thing would be you could dry your clothes in the rain ( Iknow, I know it would be awfully damp.

Greenmare said...

well, if you closed in the bottom there it WOULD be a big quilting area............

Belvie said...

LOL!!!All you need to go with it is a rusty pickup truck with a railroad tie bumper and a snow blade on the front!

darlynn said...

That looks like Clinton's new Library...wonder if it was the inspiration????

Patchwork Penguin said...

OMG!!!! WHY would anyone live in a trailer on stilts like that!!! The energy bills to heat must be horrendous..... not to mention the fear of making one wrong move and tumbling down the side of the hill. What a hoot!!!

My DH and I raised our family in a single wide trailer. We were AF and housing was hard to find at our location. They were special times, and the friends I made while living in that trailer have been the very best in every way. Why must we label people and not see them as individuals? Now, I would much rather be called a "redneck" than "trailer trash" but if that is the way someone thinks, it is THEIR loss!

I am glad that you explained the caption of this not-so-mobile home picture. When I was newly married in 1966, living in a small town, we lived in a single-wide home for almost 7 years. We landscaped the yard and did all the other things possible to improve the appearance of a mobile home. I know that you agree that where one lives should not reflect on one's worth or character,etc. Some of the finest people we'll ever meet have lived or currently live in mobile homes while some of the most unpleasant people live in mansions.
