Stuck in a doublewide!


Hey, I joined this to find out about the roof, all done. Thank you very much. Now I have found non-toxic black mold in the ceiling of the kitchen. So bummed! Question is, do I tackle the ceiling, wall that is water damaged or the floor first. Be nice, I'm working my butt off to make this place home.

I would do all 3 at the same time. Need doing anyway. Make one mess and not have to cleanup 3X is what I would do.

Sounds like a good time to rip everything out.

Oh wouldn't I just love to tear it all out and start from scratch! Being on SSI makes it a little difficult, so I think I will start at the top and work my way down. Not 3 messes, just 1 continuous mess. I will be back.

DIY or working alone often means just that - doing things multiple times, esp cleaning up. As for making mistakes, I almost killed a tree with all the construction garbage I left around it. That would have been very expensive mistake.

Moving right along, lol. Have removed the subfloor in front of the back door. Full 8' by 4' sheet of plywood. All ready to put the new wood down and found that there is still a leak in the wall. Think I have that covered. Now, is it feasible to put a wood door where the trailer door is? Has anyone done it before and what kind of problems am I going to run into?

You need to check a few measurements---your walls may not be as thick as a standard house wall---

The height might also be shorter than a standard prehung door---
