Complete Mobile Home Remodel


Okay peeps we got a lot done this weekend! Still havent managed to get to the floors in the bathroom yet, but we did get a lot done and hopefully by this next weekend, the bathroom will be painted. We taped and mudded the bathroom and the rest of the master bedroom, waited for it to dry, then sanded it and mudded it again, we will sand it again probably tonight or tomorrow. We cut the drain and water supply line holes in the bottom of the vanity and put it in place. Its not secured yet because its backless so i want to paint behind it. We got the bathroom light box installed and secured. I dont have a picture of the light box but i did get photos of the drywall all mudded and taped.
We also put about three tubes of caulk on the outside where it is leaking.

I know there are still some bubbles in the tape but we are working on it. Theyll get smoothed out. Thanks for reading, I would love to know your thoughts on it so far!

Are you gonna put a surround over the bathtub, or what? Shower?

Yes i bought a MAAX acrylic tub surround, itll cover from the top of the tub to about 1/4 of the way up the window. I want to paint before we put that up, though, and the vanity needs to be pulled back out so i can paint behind it. I wont paint all the wall behind the tub walls, just about two inches behind the edges so that i wont get paint on the surround. I found a special adhesive at Surplus Warehouse that is specially formulated to bond acrylic to drywall.

OK i just updated my spreadsheet, last night i went and purchased the remaining wire we need, and some self-stick mesh drywall tape because im sick of bubbles, and some more drywall corners. According to my calculations, and i may be mistaken, we are only ~$1400 away from making this house livable. Not perfect, but livable.
To finish everything except the siding, we are still a little over 2k away. The siding will have to be replaced sometime next year, after our wedding is over. From this point to complete total finish line, we still are going to pay out over $8k. But most of that is outside (~$3500 for the roof replacement, $2500 if i pay the pro to replace siding) so we will definitely be able to finish the inside to complete this thread. So, keep reading! Updates should start coming quickly over the next couple of months! We're headed for that Livable finish line at a dead run!

Complete Mobile Home Remodel


it was thunderstorming today so we couldnt really do any work in the house. so we went to home depot instead. i bought and had them cut 13 cabinet side panels, 5 bottoms and a bunch of supports. i also recieved my first shipment of hardwood flooring, which i intend to put in my bedroom. if i decide to take the next shipment it will go in the other bedroom. this is engineered wood, not the solid hardwood. but its beautiful. it will go down as soon as we finish painting the walls. tomorrow we finish the final sanding and mudding of the bedroom, and sand, prime, and paint the bathroom. if it dries in time, we will get the shower surround put up too. wish us luck!

Looks like your going to need a spacer on the left side of that cabinet or the casings not going to fit and it's going to hit the doors when you open them.

What are you trying to use to apply the drywall compound? Whatever it is it's to narrow and leaving it way to rough.
They needed to be at least 8" wide, 12" would be better.

Just a quick question? how much of that remodel cost will you really recoup? it is a moble home after all. Because it would be nice to know if one can do that. I really have enjoyed watching your progress.

thanks everybody. yes if you have the measurements, you can pay home depot a quarter per cut to cut them to size. for seven cabinets i paid $3.45.
we are using the three biggest sizes of putty knives sold by lowes. it works, if nothing else. we did have to do some rearranging and moving stuff but the vanity fits as is and the door opens fully without rubbing. we arent putting regular trim in the bathroom.
to be honest im not sure we will ever recoup the money spent here but its better to pay a little now plus a bit of hard labor rather than pay $100k for a finished house that had god knows how many problems hidden by the drywall. at least in my opinion, and we are just starting out after all.
ok we did a lot of work today, we sanded the bathroom, primed it, painted it, and installed the tub surround walls. we also ripped up the old tile and linoleum, and swept and mopped the floor in preperation for peel and stick wood-grain vinyl planks that will be next to get done.

And here is a picture of my lovely engineered hardwood flooring! Its all stacked up and ready to go down. We got it used, so we got it for one hell of a deal! plus its pre-stained and pre-polyurethaned!
We were going to put this in the little bedroom and put laminate in the master but since we are trying to get moved in ASAP, we decided to leave the little bedroom bare plywood for now and put this in the master.

Quick update - no pics since im at work but i just received word from my mom that her and my sister went out there to the house today and laid part of the floor in the bathroom. She said they couldnt finish because they ran out of planks. So i guess tonight means another trip to Fred's and hope to high heaven they still carry the stuff! I had no idea it was bigger than 15 sq ft! Its tiny. Oh well i guess i just have to pray that its still there.
