Okay, because I know I'm gonna say in the comment section or she are gonna be like can't believe you said, this was affordable I'm talking about compared to a lot of the other homes that we put on the channel.

And for this being such a big double wide, you do the square footage you divide it out per dollar square foot.

I guarantee you it's, a lot cheaper than most stuff you're going to find around your area, especially where I'm from, and I live in a small town, but just for reference, if you was to build a house where I live it's, at least 150 square foot, probably more than that, depending on, you know what you build.

And so yeah, that'll give you some reference.

But yeah, just a just a big house for a lower price.

Keep in mind that there could be the freight chargers and stuff that I can't account for county regulations, depending on where you are.

And this is for at the time of recording.

But this is delivered set up all that good stuff and it's gonna be right here right now up above us.

Give you a great idea? What you can get this home for I want to close that tonight's video by saying that I'm sure there's somebody that's watching that maybe you're going through some things, uh, some difficult times, maybe something you've never experienced in your life, uh.

And I just have, you know, just impressed to tell you that the lord knows exactly where you're at and don't give up on him and and and trying to get guidance from him during this time.

So I want to leave you with that don't give up keep pushing forward, keep pressing on, uh.

I hope y'all have a great weekend.
