Site Prep For Mobile Home

Site preparation is a key part of site building. There are a wide range of tools available that can help you create a foundation for your site that stays flat, clean, and safe. These include flooring patches, wood glue traps, and power washing products.

Glue traps are typically used to create spaces between two surfaces. In this case, they’re used to create a space around your mobile home or RV park.

Power washing products work well for creating the illusion of being on a very wet and crime-ridden street. These may be useful in avoiding too many complaints from neighbors!

Mortar and patch systems are commonly used to create foundations for sites. Depending on what type of site you are wanting to build, these can vary in size and complexity.


Remove bushes

If there are any large bushes or tall trees, remove them before site prep. This will make it easier for your site hands to prepare the site for your mobile home.

Any large tree or bush that can be removed with a ladder is sufficient to start site prep. Remove all of the upper branches, but leave a few good ones for future growth.

Using sharp gardening gloves and a long-handled knife, cut out the tree or bush at the lowest point on each branch. If doing multiple trees or bushes, do them in order of size.

Then, use an axe or maul to break down every piece of wood used to create the tree or bush. This will allow you to get at any minerals and water that might be inside, which can help save you from a dry house after year one of use.

Mow lawn

If you have a lot of leaves or other vegetation that grows in your yard, now is the time to cut it back.

Many mobile home parks offer guidelines on how to keep your property safe and legal for undeveloped land. Some even use their property to teach safety rules for children.

If this is a style of home or house plan you are looking at, then taking away some of the vegetation can help make your property more vulnerable to theft. But, this can also be done safely and legally.

There are many ways to tree prep for mobile homes. First, dig a series of trenches about three feet apart around the base of each tree. Then, use an ax or chainsaw to remove all but one side of the tree. Next, put up netting to protect the remaining trunk from birds and bugs until it dies down.

Paint lines

If you are planning on moving into site at a mobile home park, you should do some paint line preparation. These are areas that have been marked as paint lines, where utilities are installed to connect the mobile home to the system.

This helps with future painting projects as well as initial preparation for the mobile home park. When installing utilities, they may run water and electricity, however there is a spatial arrangement of rooms and spaces that determine who has access to what supplies.

A good point to note is when opening up the lines. You should open them only during daytime hours to prevent vandalism or someone drowning out private communications such as electricity or water announcements. Also, if someone else opens the lines, then you should close them because of potential sewage leaks.

Mark corners

Once the sod is laid, the next step is to mark the corners of the mobile home park. This means cutting a line in the ground and dividing the land into two pieces with a boundary line.

The two pieces of land must be connected by a road or shared space so you don’t get any parcels of land that aren’t connected. It also helps to create room for future markers such as parking spaces or another structure.

To mark a corner, you first have to make a 45-degree turn to face your opponent. Then, you slant in from one side at a 90-degree angle, and finally, you come back out at your original position.

Update lighting

Once you have your site up and running, it is time to update the lighting. This can be done in several ways.

Using a nightlight, or a light that is dimmed enough to look like a nightlight. You can also install a daylight, or a set of lights that are dim enough to look like morning or afternoon daylight.

Neither of these will help you if your mobile home is dark inside, because you will need some lighting to find your door!

Using LEDs or CFLs (compared to the incandescent bulbs that were used) for the lighting. Both of these will help maintain stability and temperature of your room, and save on electrical costs.

Update signs

Update signs are a great way to help your visitors update their map information during their visit. Many mobile devices will automatically pop up an update sign when a new turn is reached.

To update the signs, simply create two new lines of text next to the previous line, one for today and one for yesterday. Then print and distribute!

These signs can also be updated via computer or smartphone app, making it a quick way to support your community.

Repave parking spots

If you have a large mobile home or larger, you should consider installing pavers around your vehicle’s entrance. This would help protect the parking space from damage due to heavy vehicles.

To install pavers, you can get some medium-sized rocks and place them in the shape of a circle or square. Then, you can add some plants on top of them to make it look more authentic.

These pavers would help protect your parking spot from any damage caused by heavy vehicles such as trucks, cars, or even boats. It would also help increase the value of your property!

If you have nothing planned for your property, then try going out and buying some landscaping stones as they come in bags. They can be used as pavers if not enough land is prepared.

Clean up trash

Before any new construction, the site owner should clear away any trash or debris that may have been left behind. This includes removing old Christmas decorations and leftover food items from last year’s holiday celebration.

After these cleanup tasks are complete, the site owner can begin preparing the site for construction. He or she can clean up trash and debris in places such as underneath cars, around gas tanks, and inside of abandoned cars.

This is typically done by using a tractor-shaped vehicle to spread out the material, placing a brush on top to cover up the underlying wires, and then compacting the area with a heavy duty compactor.

Once this is done, the newly constructed mobile home park can advertise their space online and within their area for interested individuals to come check it out. Mobile homes are large enough that two people cannot sleep facing each other but only sitting side-by-side.
