I live in a single wide 1987 mobile home. It needs some work on it. Insulation, caulking around the windows, the transom needs replaced as does the from door. An exit door needs to be put on the side of the trailer off the back bedroom, a door needs to be set so that bedroom is private. As I am disabled, and on SS. I need ramps off the porch and the porch finished all along the length of one side. The bathroom needs a special tub/shower and handicapped commode, a new floor and new door. Some of this work can be done as we go along, but my problem is not having anyone who can do some of the work...I have had contractor electricians, plumbers, and other remodeling peoples in to give me quotes and the lowest complete quote was $25, 000. OUCH!! Not in my budget. I have been told that there are programs here in Ky that will assist the handicapped in remodeling the bathroom but no one knows how to find these programs...It seems to be a big deep dark secret...."na, na, na na I know something you don' know and I won't tell you!" is the game they play....So gang what does one do?

I sure hope so. It is almost criminal that you practically have to be related to someone that has access to these things to find out about them. I ♥ Google! and I also love that many of these agencies have online sites to fill out some of the forms. uhg, forms! There may be 100 of them to fill out and get stamped at various places Blinking You are going to have to be very patient and thorough.and more patient...
Patience and perseverance will get you through this. I will put you on my prayer list.
