We own a mobile home that sits on the bank of a creek and the water is eating away the bank. There is only a few more feet left until the bank is gone and the home ends up in the creek, is there a way to stop this from happening? We dont have alot of money but we have the energy to do it ourselfs is there any advise that you could give us to help us from losing our home?

Sorry to hear about the erosion issue. This is a tough one, as water can be a real force to be reckoned with.

I would suggest posting this on the Foundations forum. I've seen some posts from some pretty talented folks over there....they might not happen to catch it here in "Misc."

Just wondering....Is flood insurance cost-prohibitive in your area? Can the home be moved back some distance?

Good luck,
