I’ve often heard that details are what makes a home so special and after seeing this gorgeous home I’m convinced!

This 2000 model double wide is beautifully decorated! It reminds me of a storybook cottage with its rustic, natural tones and rich, warm textures.

Chantal and her husband Joe, of Marathon NY, have lived in their manufactured home since 2005. It sits on 11 acres and has 1960 square feet of  beautifully decorated space.

Initially, the couple had no intention of making this property their forever home. They bought it as a starter home because they wanted to start a family and get away from the hassles of renting.

Now, 10 years later they have no intentions of leaving!

The couple quickly fell in love with their quaint little town and grew attached to their home.

Once the decision was made to stay, they began renovating the kitchen. The builder’s grade cabinetry had to go!

Chantal and Joe redesigned the kitchen’s layout and installed cabinets and a center island that they built themselves. They also replaced the flooring, counter tops, and back splash.

After the kitchen was finished, they began on the dining and living rooms.

Joe has more than 10 years experience in construction so they were able to update the entire home by themselves.

Though Chantal admits it wasn’t easy, she estimates that they were able to save more than $30,000 in labor costs by doing the remodel themselves.

They also saved money by tearing down an old barn and reusing the wood as flooring, trim, and shelving.

Their living room floor is covered in the barn wood. The rest of the wood made it onto various surfaces around the house such as the island counter top and breakfast bar. They made smaller shelving out of the smaller scraps of wood.

Delightful Dining Room 

The dining room carries on the vintage shabby chic vibe.
The crafty couple built their dining table out of new wood and then stained it. They were able to build the large table and both benches for less than $160!
Chantal found the hutch on Craigslist and updated it to match the other elements in the room.

Darling Deck

Of course, the exterior of the home got an update too!

The family built a 32′ x 24′ foot deck off the kitchen last year. Chantal quickly made the space her own by adding custom seating and outdoor decor.

    I love this style! I only wish that I can do this to my mobile home. It’s simple beautiful and refreshing but with a down home sweetness. That gorgeous dog is just awesome in the photo, a great add to your photos.

    Really late to this party.

    What a lovely makeover. Everything looks so warm and comfortable. Love the shelf in the laundry room. What a difference this would make. Think I might have to steal this one from you. Your home is filled with so much love. Thank you for sharing this with all of us.

    I also love the lights o the deck and the pallet furniture.

    Chantal, I am so curious where this home is. I live in the same small town as you do. Imagine my surprise when I randomly came across this story! We have done the same thing, turned a double wide into a real home. Ours is more rustic cabin than bright cottage. But I love what you’ve done. It’s gorgeous.

    The homeowners did a wonderful job of renovating their home and making it their own. I love the recycled barn board used and no worrying about scrapes or dings since the floor has built in patina and wear.
    I also like the way they installed the railing on the deck. Running the boards horizontally would make painting so much easy than pickets.
    Very nice home!
