lsquirrelb--Moving interior wall/manufactured home


Considering the purchase of a modular home. Owner does not have "As Built" plans. We would need to remove an interior portion of a wall that makes up part of a walk in closet to allow for "wall space" for furniture. This is not on the "joining" wall. There is an outlet on that wall. How do we determine if eliminating this outlet will affect anything else? As stated - we do not own yet, but this is an important consideration in the purchase.

Really need someone that knows what there looking at to look this one over.
Anyone on any web site is just going to be guessing.
Removing a wall opens up a whole can of worms with the flooring and ceiling repairs.

I really would not. Easier to get rid of some furniture. Post pictures of the said furniture, along with a drawn out floor plan. Really as long as the wall is not the Sister wall, you might if you can find out who manufactured the structure. Then contact them and see if they have plans.

Local Mobile/Mfg home places may have old documents or can come and look at it, to tell you if it can cause problems. As for the outlet, you would have to remove it at the outlet downstream of it. As long as it is not the first in the wiring harness.

Isquirrelb, to respond to your sentence "There is an outlet on that wall. How do we determine if eliminating this outlet will affect anything else?" . Plug a lamp into that outlet. Then turn off the circuit breaker that turns the lamp off. Then use the same lamp and go around house checking other outlets to see if others have been effected. Check also if any light switches have been effected.
