Complete Mobile Home Remodel


Sorry for the lack of updates. We havent had a chance to get back out there since my last update. Between the ice storm that just ripped its way through, christmas coming up, and wedding stuff, we just havent had time. i will be so glad when this wedding gets here so we can dedicate all of our time to the house again.
Whenever we are able to go back out there, after the ice melts, we intend to finish the master bedroom floor and baseboards, finish painting the walls in there and get the electric installed in the laundry room so we can get the drywall started there.

It's looking good! I hope you've been able to get back out, it seems like you're pretty close to finishing.

This thread is bringing back memories. We bought a single wide trailer a few years back, and were told all it needed was cleaning and paint. The electricity was off when we first looked at it, so we couldn't really see how bad it was. Ended up replacing about 70% of the subfloor, new water heater, new kitchen, all new flooring, new walls, some new wiring, new built-ins, etc. And of course, as soon as we finished all that work our circumstances changed and we had to move. I still miss it, it was the most finished house (in terms of the remodeling projects I wanted to do) and one of the cheapest.

Thanks ica171. We havent been out yet because of the winter weather, unnaturally cold for Texas, but tomorrow we are definitely going to head back out there and see what's what. My grandma is wanting to rent it from us when its done, so we want to go ahead and finish it up the best we can until we run out of supplies, then we will go ahead and finish it all once the wedding is over.

i know you guys must hate me by now, but we did go out there and do some work a few weekends ago. We just returned from the honeymoon on Monday, so now its all about the trailer again.
We walked through the house, wrote down what we needed and what still needed to be done. We didnt find any evidence of critters, but we did find evidence of leaks, so we will be going out there hopefully this weekend to fix the leaks. I promise we will update soon, with pictures.

Complete Mobile Home Remodel


So this weekend was all about the trailer. Saturday we went out there armed with a push mower and a weedeater, and got all of the grass mown down. (necessary, cause of snakes). That alone took the whole day, so yesterday we attacked the leaks. We couldnt find the actual hole where the water was coming in, but we do know the area, so since the siding is some type of wood (painted OSB, but tougher) we got some outdoor wood filler, plugged the entire seam where it was leaking, and then went over the top edge with silicone, and painted the whole wall. I know the siding needs replaced, and it will be, but hopefully the repairs we made yesterday will buy me a year or so to save up cash.
Just painting alone made a 1000 percent difference. It looks like a different trailer!
Next weekend, we will finish up the paint job on the front and sides, and ill post photos of it. I would have taken photos yesterday but it got dark too quickly

Complete Mobile Home Remodel


Finally got a couple of pictures! We fully intended to finish painting it this weekend, but the heat made that impossible since the sun shines directly on the front side of the trailer, and today it was about 98 degrees out there. We had no choice but to work inside.
Yesterday we sanded down the re-mudded lines in the master, to prep them for another coat of mud. We also cleaned out the room to prep for carpet. We decided we were going to go ahead and cut out the pieces of carpet for the two rooms (living room and bedroom), and we spent approx. 3 hours cleaning out the living room so we can spread the carpet out. It took the two of us literally about 2 hours to move the roll of carpet and get it unrolled in the living room, and thats about as far as we got. The heat was just too much. So i took some pics of the living room with the carpet unrolled, and the trim boards back up on the mirror wall. We havent decided if we are going to do the crossboards or not, we are going to paint the wall first and see what it looks like before we decide.

Before i post pics, i want to make one thing clear. We are NOT installing the carpet before the walls are finished. We are just cutting it. After its cut, we are going to re-roll it and leave it in the floor, then install it after the drywall is finished and painted. Needless to say, the outside didnt get finished getting painted so no pics of that. Enjoy the pics, hopefully more to come soon.
