This extreme single wide home remodel is fabulous and extreme is definitely the best word to describe this complete home transformation. The owners took an older single wide and completely transformed it into a beautiful dream home that is huge! Here’s the single wide before the total remodel:

I applaud the owners ability to see the potential this single wide had. Completely remodeling a home is not easy but they did a remarkable job. Some people would see a mobile home like that and think it was ready for the junk yard, others can envision what the home could become and think of the endless possibilities. These homeowners are certainly in the later group! Here’s is the kitchen after the transformation.  The style reminds me of a mixture of  Tuscan and traditional and it is gorgeous! The pale cabinetry and marble counter tops and back splash adds to the custom design. There’s a lot of great ideas in this room. Recessed lights along with pendant lights are always a popular choice for kitchens and for good reason, a well lighted room is essential for tasty cooking. You can easily change the style of the decor by simply changing the pendants if the need ever arises. You can see that this kitchen is trimmed with wide, architectural trim. Trim is great tool to give any room or home a completed look. It doesn’t have to be traditional or decorative, a simple or plain trim can really make the whole room pop!

The light monotone color palette used in the kitchen is very eye-pleasing. Subtle creams and whites allow the pale cabinetry to be the prominent feature of the room and not the back splash, flooring or appliances.

Surrounding the refrigerator with floor to ceiling cabinetry is an excellent way to have storage close by. It also makes the refrigerator look like a built-in piece of furniture as opposed to just an appliance.

Instead of having the dishwasher close to the sink , where everyone can see it as soon as they walk through the back door and glance toward the kitchen, the owner opted to put hers out of sight. She added a small bar sink close by for convenience and stated that it is working out well for her.

Varying height levels is another great way to add style to a home or room. Sometimes varying heights are necessary in construction, especially when you are building onto an existing home and need to transition to a new room. Use the differences and angles to your advantage. Trim them out and make it a feature of the room by adding additional lighting or decor.

That was just the kitchen, we still have the rest of the home to enjoy!

 The Dining Room

The dining room is right beside the kitchen. The arch is a great feature that frames both rooms.

This room has an unique structure along with the arch. Shelving and ‘cubby-holes’ are utilized in the room. I’m guessing the builders needed a way to transition the new build onto the single wide and this was how they got it all to play well together.

You don’t have to have the same style in every room but it can make a home  look joined and cohesive if you do.

All the different lighting is displayed here. Matching styles and warm bulb colors are a great idea to join 2 areas together.

This home is so beautiful! The owners did such a great job with the architectural elements and the decor. It’s a warm and welcoming space that has great lighting and color. I just love everything about it!

The Living Room

Here is the living room:

Traditional decor will always be in style.

If I’m not mistaken, you can see the ceiling of the original single wide in this photo. The lower ceiling is the original mobile home and the cathedral ceiling is the addition. Using the recessed lighting in the lower section makes it all look as if it were designed this way from the beginning and not just an addition built onto a mobile home.

    Your kitchen looks fabulous. I liked your cabinet’s colour as I have painted my cabinet with simple white colour but now seeing your kitchen I am very curious to change my kitchen room.

    Love house tour!! I think you had spent awful amount of time re-designing your place. Kitchen update is quite impressive .I bought a condominium that needed some remodeling. While the bathrooms were usable, they weren’t pretty. Keeping the bathroom renovation on budget is important for me as I have to do major kitchen renovation too. I love your bathroom and you have utilized every single space pretty well , would love to copy some of your ideas to make rooms more functional and organized.

    I am curious, I have a 16 x 80 single wide home. I would love to remodel the kitchen to make it more functional for my needs. Do you come up your own ideas or is there someone who can help with the design? Also, are there contractors who will do the actual work, as my husband and I are totally clueless. I live in western new york and would love to find someone who would help us in renovating. Also has anyone ever added a all season sunroom to their single wide?

      Hi Robyn,

      I think most of us just look for ideas online, in magazines, and at home improvement stores. If you go to Lowe’s or Home Depot, they have software that will help you figure out what design and layout you want and contract with reputable companies to have it at installed for you (at a price of course..lol). You just have to give them your measurements and they order the cabinetry to the exact measurements for you. It’s really hard to try to piece together all the different colors and textures for a kitchen remodel – there’s soooo many choices that most people find it easier to find a complete kitchen they like at the home improvement store and just order it as a complete set. Personally, that’s what I would recommend you do.

      If you would rather order everything yourself, piece by piece, then you will have to hire someone to install it for you. You should be able to find a company that is experienced in manufactured home remodeling in your area – there’s only a slight difference between a site built home and manufactured home (single wides derive their structural integrity or strength from the roof is the main difference) so any licensed contractor should be able to handle kitchen remodels. Maybe you could google search for kitchen remodeler or remodeling contractor online for your area. Please make sure to ask for references (and call them) and get their licensing, insurance, and complaint information – it’s so easy to get ripped off if you don’t investigate the contractors. I don’t want to scare you, just make you aware that a lot of people end up with an unsatisfactory experience and had they called the former clients they could have bypassed it.

      As for the sunrooms, absolutely! They are VERY popular in the southern states. It’s a great way to add some extra room at an affordable price. There’s some companies online that sell the entire sunroom kits for manufactured homes – one of the most popular mobile home parts companies in the nation, Mobile Home Parts Store, has them here.. There’s all some national sunroom retailers – I see their commercials on TV all the time but I can’t remember their name. Sunrooms, I think.

      I wish you the best of luck! If there’s anything I can help you with just give me a yell! Thanks!

      Hi James! If I had to guess a remodel like this probably cost at least 10 thousand just for the building material. If they hired contractors to do all the work I’d guess the total was well over 25 grand (I’m in WV so I’m used to a lower price per hour for contractors – I’m not for sure what things cost out west). Still, that’s pretty good compared to what a traditional home would cost if you built it from scratch.

      One of the best things about buying an old mobile home and adding on to it is that you can do a little at a time and pay cash as you go. It takes a lot longer but you could do it without going into debt. :)
