John Jenkins: I Survived IRMA

NAPLES FLORIDA

  • In November 2017, I had the blessing of an opportunity to purchase a beautiful corner lot in a 55+ community in Naples, FL after years of renting and throwing my money away. It was a fantastic deal and unfortunately after the purchase I found out that because of the way my business income was structured, getting a mortgage for a house would not be possible. Figured I had got such a great deal on the property that I would market it properly, FLIP it and make 10 – 15 grand. Spoke to my father in Canada about my plans and because of his concerns regarding the potential turmoil in the US with the recent election, he felt it was important that I have a solid real estate foundation and advanced early inheritance to facilitate. Yes, he is a Saint.

    Cash in hand I researched and shopped throughout the state. I originally decided on a “build-your-own” homemaker that at first sight appeared to be significantly cost saving. As the contract was about to be signed, significant costs popped up and I was forced to back out of the deal losing some of my deposit money. Distraught and on my way home I thought I’d check out one last place. Taylor-Made Homes in Homasassa, FL. It was DESTINY!

    Mark Clayton walked me through a model that was exactly what I was looking for but with significant upgrades like crown molding throughout, tiled showers & backsplashes, HUGE master bdrm & Bath with pool/tub… Told him I would like to look at base unit of this model. He told me that the way they work is you buy the unit set up on property. COULDN’T BELIEVE that this was the price!!!! SOLD!!!!!!!

    My experience with Taylor-Made Homes only improved. Their “SET-UP” guy, Jeff Wagner at GTS HOMES was INCREDIBLE!!!!! His knowledge and expertise were second to none and his counsel and referrals to service professionals were invaluable!

    And that might have been the end of my story and praise for the home buying experience. As a home buyer we often look at the experience of buying the home as being the MOST IMPORTANT aspect.
    I WAS TO FIND OUT 6 MONTHS AFTER MOVING INTO MY NEW HOME HOW WRONG I WAS!!!!
    THE HOME IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING!!!!

    SEPTEMBER 7TH, 2017
    HURRICANE IRMA BEARING DOWN ON THE PENNINSULA OF FLORIDA
    KEY WEST UNDER EVACUATION ORDER
    ALL MODELS SAY EAST COAST EVENT

    SEPTEMBER 8TH, 2017
    KEY WEST NOW UNDER MANDATORY EVACUATION ORDER
    KEY COASTAL HIGHWAY EVACUATION ADVISORY
    ALL MODELS STILL SAY EAST COAST EVENT

    SEPTEMBER 9TH, 2017

    ALL KEYS NOW UNDER MANDATORY EVACUATION ORDER
    MIAMI & FORT LAUDERDALE EVACUATION NOTICE
    ALL OF A SUDDEN MID DAY SOMETHING HAPPENED, AND IRMA SHIFTED SLIGHTLY TO THE WEST AND WHAT HAD BEEN ANTISIPATED TO BE AN EAST COAST EVENT SUDDENLY BECAME A WEST COAST OF FLORIDA EVENT WITH MY NEW HOUSE IN THE CROSSHAIRS FOR LANDFALL!

    We had been watching the storms progress and were concerned originally that we would experience “tropical storm” force winds at most. Having been through many, I wasn’t too concerned however a CAT-4 coming straight in on us was another thing entirely! As IRMA made her way toward us we had no options available. It was too late to evacuate. Getting on I-75 at that point was getting onto a “parking lot to nowhere,” all the hotels were filled by east coast evacuees, and I had my fiancé and dog to worry about. At that point the ONLY person to answer their phone was Jeff from GTS Homes. He told me,

    “You have a great product that I can attest was professionally installed. If anyone is going to make it, it’s going to be you.” That was good enough for me to get as much in the way of supplies as possible and “huncker down.”

    We lost power at 2:42pm on September 10th, 2017 and it would be 10 days before FP&L could restore power and reliable communication.

    During the storm we watched out our storm windows as other units were torn apart! 2 times during the storm I went out to remove significant debris that was threatening my home from other destroyed homes. 9 homes in my immediate neighborhood have been scraped off the earth as a result.

    This was a catastrophic storm for so many, yet I can only believe that I have been spared because of the grace of God and the quality and design of my DESTINY BUILT HOME!!

Grand Slam

  • I purchased a used 1998 2k sq ft Destiny Mobile home about a year ago. The home was decently maintained and not “used hard”. To my delight, I would like to report the following. Floors are still in perfect shape, no plumbing leaks and still using original plumbing fixtures, there was a roof leak which was caused by a cracked vent boot which was easily repaired with no subsequent leakage. No leakage from ANY windows. ALL appliances are original and all are functioning properly. The house is very “tight” and holds heat and cooling very well. Never hear outside wind/ weather and house feels as solid as my northeast stuck built home. Trim work is all still in perfect shape. All ceiling fans still work perfect. Electricity works everywhere. Water heater is original and works fine although I do plan to replace it BEFORE it leaks. Bottom line, a 15 yr old mobile home that is still in fantastic shape. I feel like I hit a grand slam because if you could see how terrific this house has held up, you would be astonished. I got no chips in this game and am just giving you my experience. I am truly amazed at my Destiny mobile home’s workmanship, durability and reliability.

    Large Variety and Custom Options

    • I looked for 6 months at all brands of homes and decided to get a destiny from local builder “Delta Home Center”. This is one of the best built homes I have seen. We have had very few problems and when we did have an issue it was resolved with in few days. The large variety and custom options, along with above grade construction is why we chose this brand and will continue to refer them to all our friends. Every one that has seen our home loves it as well as my 2 children. My neighbor is even getting a Modular Home from them now and I couldn’t believe the options available to her. Thanks Delta and Destiny for your excellent service and products.

    • Trinity Housing & Development from Tifton ga.

      Exceptional Engineering Staff and Service Department

      • We have purchased many system built homes from several modular manufacturers & Destiny Industries is by far one of the best. Their engineering staff & service dept. are exceptional. Lonnie, serv. dept manager, has responded immediately on all housing problems (which have been few) and goes beyond his duties to insure that the home owner (our customer) is well satisfied. Destiny uses quality materials to produce a good house at awesome prices. Destiny’s performance record, with our customers, has made them one of our top producers of residential & multi-family housing. Thanks and keep up the good work, Trinity.

        • I’ve ordered multiple Destiny’s for customers and have had nothing but excitement and appreciation when they turn the key to their new home for the first time.
          These homes are quality and beauty put into one. I can not stress enough to look into them as your builder. These are not your grandmas trailers… These are homes that outshine most site built homes we have seen.
