We had similar scenario in our home office. The entire flooring was torn in multiple places, making it look as ugly as hell. After consulting home improvement professional, he suggested to get the entire flooring removed and cleaned and then redone.

We had Foremost for our trailer insurance, too. Looking at my old budget, it looks like it ran about $40 per month for a trailer a little older than yours. No walkthrough, no hassles or anything like that.

what have you finished with? I like the pictures you posted! Remodeling is challenging...especially when you find more work as you go along. Like plumbing hiccups and electrical issues, venting!! We replaced the cheater vents...did you have cheater vents in your MH or is that an older model feature?

Not sure what cheater vents are, they are floor vents in this mobile. They are gone now, I removed them and filled in the holes. At this particular moment, nothing is completely finished. The bathroom is very very close, and the kitchen is halfway there. The master is 95% done. It's been storming like crazy here recently which makes the ground soft so we can't get back there to work until the rain stops and the ground firms up. Hope we can get out there soon.

I replied to this, dont know what happened to my post. Sorry. Anyway, yes my trailer has cheater vents. Since venting the pipes through walls or roof would require extensive plumbing work in the walls we have already closed in, we decided to forego it and just go back with new cheater vents.

Thats because its not done yet. Im in texas, we're about to float away out here. Rain every single freakin day. We cant get the car down the drive to work on the place, the ground is nothing but soft wet sand out there. When it dries up, i do plan to start work again soon. We're not living in it though, its most likely either going to be sold or used as a rental.

We have to replace all of the water supply lines. Still going to spend somewhere in the range of about $2500.

At this current moment, we have spent a total of $6,737.95

We have returned and sold a total of $1,035.93

Minus the cost of the home itself, we have actually spent on renovations, a grand total of $2,652.02

Add the cost of the dump on Saturday, it brings up our total to $2,692.02

P.S. Did everyone notice the ultra-fancy trashbag curtains? LOL i cant bring myself to put twenty-dollar curtains out there where they will get covered in drywall dust and sawdust.
how did you replace the outside beams around the bottom of the mobile home that is sometimes called the plate, basically holds everything in place?
