Updating manufactured home

What about siding or putting on a peaked roof facade? First, I washed the paneling with TSP to get any oil or furniture spray that had been used to preserve the paneling then I coated it with primer before painting.

In my living room I used spackle to go between the paneling.

I just let it dry and sanded if areas were not smooth and I bought a heavy wallpaper (Sherwin Williams) that was discounted and wallpapered my whole living room. I hate dark paneling because I want as much of the sunlight and light as possible. I think I used about 5 to 6 gallons on a 14 x 70 trailer. I used one that was supposed to cover with one coat.

I just bought wallpaper paste and put it up as usual. For the outside, I washed with a pressure washer, which you can rent. I only put one coat on and I wished later I had put on two coats. I otherwise find decorating things at resale stores and yard sales.

Unless the homeowner plans on living in the home indefinitely, the decision to put money into repairs and upgrades should be carefully weighed.

Manufactured homes are subject to the Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards, or “HUD Code,” rather than local building code.

Manufactured homes typically depreciate in value over time, while stick-built homes tend to appreciate.

The older a mobile home is, the less likely that remodeling or adding upgrades makes financial sense.

It looks just fine and was a cheap option to update the house. We used old bike tire rims in lieu of a headboard for each bed. Each room ended up costing about 0 in materials to do the walls and floor.From the outside, this Jayc Guy Bonin has always been a bit of a handyman.That's probably why his friends gave him this an old single wide.It's so inspiring and helpful to see great mobile home remodels and makeovers.Today, we are sharing the Scheid's 1986 double wide makeover in Dallas, Georgia.
