From Mobile Home to Townhouse to Manufactured Home – Sue Midgett – Inside MH Video

Some stories just have to be heard for us to connect with them, so we’ll let the video below tell you an intriguing part of Sue’s family story. As you’ll see, Sue Midgett lives in Westville, IN at New Durham Estates. Sue was one of the wide variety of manufactured home owners and professionals we interviewed the week we recently spent in Indiana and Pennsylvania, as winter was winding down.

As a programming note, our “INSIDE MH – Road Show” will be heading north again soon, this time to Michigan, as well as Indiana. We plan a swing through the southeastern U.S. soon, too. So you’ll see more true-to-life-stories from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana and other states. Over time, the “INSIDE MH – Road Show” will reach out to other parts of the U.S.. The goal is to have videos and stories from all 50 states. That said, back to Ms. Midgett’s video!

“Liz” Romancheck not only sells manufactured homes, she has lived in them and still does! We’ll share her video interview from her home, her Inside MH video is currently set for the month of May.

It should go without saying that those who live in manufactured homes (MH) ought to have a voice in telling their own stories. So we ask each person we interview about their interests, career and how they came to where they now live. We ask them to share their thoughts about the MH lifestyle. By the time the video edits are done, those we interview for Inside MH may not get their full fifteen minutes of fame, but they’ll get a nice part of that with the finished videos we share with you.

Years ago, Sue lived in a pre-HUD Code “mobile home,” then a townhouse and finally bought the manufactured home she is living in today. For newcomers to, there have been no mobile homes built in the U.S. since June 15, 1976. The homes today are built to the tough federal bill-matchneer-retired-manufactured-housing-program-administrator-posted-mhlivingnews-inside-mh-safety and construction standards – known as the HUD Code for manufactured housing – and are a focus of our educational and entertaining videos and articles. For insights into modern MH from a recently retired federal official, the video with Bill Matchneer, JD, the post MHIA 2000 HUD Code program administrator, is linked here.

Sue’s personality shines through during her interview, she was a true joy to speak with. In this INSIDE MH video, you’ll also have an opportunity to see an upscale, residential style manufactured home. FYI, the tapping you hear from time to time is her fiddling with the coffee mug on the table.
