Manufactured and Mobile Homes

 With Gunnar Alquist

6:00 PM:   Education Roundtable led by Perry Farnum
An audience participation hour, with the goal to sharpen report writing skills.   The room discusses how they report conditions observed during an inspection.  The conditions are presented visually, pre-submitted comments are read and evaluated the room. Do the comments clearly identify the condition, locate it, describe it, define why it is an issue, and recommend what to do about it?  This is always a lively discussion and challenging session for inspectors new and old.   Roundtable Handout


7:00 PM:  Manufactured and Mobile Homes led by Gunnar Alquist

Gunnar will walk us through a brief history and the key areas to focus your attention when confronted with inspecting a manufactured or mobile home.  We will examine problematic areas that are specific to mobile/manufactured homes as well as requirements that are specific to these homes.  The primary intent is to help give the inspector practical information to provide a comprehensive inspection and report for a client. 

Gunnar has been inspecting full-time 23 years and has owned his own independent inspection company since 2001.  Currently, Gunnar is the Director for CREIA’s Region 3 and has been the moderator for CREIA’s Technical Information Exchange (TIE) message board.
