This newest featured home is courtesy of Houzz.com. The designer, Dawn Moore is the owner of Moore About… Design. This modern double wide remodel embodies the best about manufactured homes: their potential to become any type of home as well as their ability to become any style.

Focusing on pre-fab and a reduced impact on our earth, Moore About… Design concepts targets clients with a savvy design eye who want sustainable building as well as sustainable living. The test lab – Dawn’s own residence – was published three weeks after completion instantly branding her work as high-style at low cost. Individuality is a hallmark of Moore About… Designing, enveloping life and its treasures in an existing dwelling or a new custom home.

While there are no before photos of this home the owner wrote a review stating the cost of the remodel was between $50,000 to $100,000 and goes on to say that Dawn’s design ideas and style took a tired old house and turned it into an open and warm home. I couldn’t agree more! Here’s the wonderfully finished manufactured home, along with the designers own notes:

 
Board and batten Hardie board painted a dark woodland brown gives a cottage vibe. The cable railing and industrial style light fixtures add an industrial twist. When designing the landscape, we made sure to include flat areas for entertaining in addition to a generous deck for viewing.
 “Industrial Cottage” is the look that drove the choice of materials, colors and applications for this manufactured home rehab. Intentionally looking “added on,” the front overhang continues the corrugated metal roof but uses exposed boots mixed with cable railing. The concrete water feature was formed with left over siding and the “spout” is a pipe that got pulled from the trash!
The front door was special ordered to ensure the size of the panels and glass pane. In keeping with the cottage/contemporary vibe, the “Shaker” style suited the criteria and fit the budget.
 

 Custom windows and expanded sliders were added to this “double wide” manufactured home to embrace the sweeping views. The marriage line and support posts were clad and stained to mimic the pine tree trunks in the distance.

A roll front cabinet allows for hiding counter top appliances and the gray subway tiles continue the silvery/gray tones of the stainless appliances. 

I removed overhead cabinets on either side of the sink to increase the windows and allow for the expansive views. IKEA cabinets, and butcher block add a warm vibe to the industrial light fixtures.

Dining space flows from kitchen to deck with a wire pendant light to add sculpture without heaviness.

This space allowed for a soaking tub centered on a 5′x5′ window to “soak” in the view. The tub deck is Doug Fir, stained and treated with polyurethane.

Lighting that is equally emitted from the sides is far more flattering than a single bulb from above! Three slim pendants across this 5 ft. space worked perfectly.  

This home is a wonderful example of what time and money can do for our homes. Of course, you don’t have to spend that much if you do it yourself! 
There’s plenty more homes to share, as well as another manufactured home remodel that Dawn Moore designed. Make sure to check back to see the newest inspiration!
Her personal website, displays her numerous talents well: designing, marketing, and writing. Her website states, “In 2010, Dawn made a personal passion a professional occupation by launching “Moore About…” to enfold retail marketing, creative writing and her latest venture – pre-fab design.”

    Wow!
    This looks like something you would see in Denmark, Norway or Sweden. Very clean lines and modern. Even though it is not my personal style, it sure is a beauty!
    Note: The deck railings are the kind that Richard wants to use for our deck. I think it would be too modern for our traditional cedar sided home. I'm inclined to go with the cedar spindles. What do you think?
