my husband and i are trying to sell our house in order to live on some land we bought-- the problem is that we havent decided what we live in when we get there. we dont make very much money (28,000 a year now and it will be less in a few months when he gets a teaching job) and we have a lot of bills that we wanted to pay off, so we thought for a long time we would buy a mobile home and have a low mortgage payment for a few years, paying off all of our debt, and then building a house. but i am very concerned about the high level of formaldehyde in these homes- supposedly the smell goes away if you ventilate it and run the air conditioner in it for a few days, but it still concerns me. has anybody ever dealt with this problem and did some research-- what did you find out? my husband is pretty mad at me right now, he thinks i'm too obsessive about things, that people are exposed to chemicals all over the place and i shouldnt let this one bother me, because you cant live in a "perfect" world. maybe hes right, but i dont want to live there and have a panic attack every day. i need some info.
