Cozy Farmhouse Look
Although smaller, at less than 1400 square feet, this 1979 doesn’t feel small. The open floor plan is well utilized with a nice setting area around the fireplace and access to the enclosed porch.
Small Kitchen is Big on Storage
One of the biggest complaints that mobile home owners have is the lack of storage in mobile homes, especially in the kitchen. Which is why its such a nice change to see what these homeowners accomplished with the small kitchen in this 1979 double wide. The combination of cabinets, open shelving and even slots for wine storage, make this small kitchen seem much bigger.
The owners also did a great job continuing the farmhouse look into the kitchen area with the addition of the farmhouse sink, terrific farmhouse lighting and the plank look on the ceiling. We also love the two tone cabinets which break up the space as well.
Small Changes Have a Big Impact
If you don’t have the time or budget to allow for a full remodel, there are still lots of great ways to make a big impact on your mobile home. Something as simple as a fresh coat of paint can make a big change to the look of your home.
The owners of this 1979 double wide did several things that we see in many home remodels. Creating accent walls, updating the flooring, changing the lighting fixtures to match the farmhouse look all helped to transform this older mobile home into a whole new home.

You Would Never Know This 1979 Double Wide is in a Community
Sometimes in manufactured home communities the homes are tight and there isn’t much room for trees or privacy. That is definitely not the case in this 55+ park. Not only did the homeowners have room for landscaping they were able to keep the surrounding trees which give plenty of privacy.
There is so much to love about this 1979 double wide. And its so reassuring to see so many homeowners taking these older mobile homes and transforming them and being able to sell them for decent prices. This home would stack up to any same size stick built home for around half the cost. Which means that manufactured housing will continue to be an economic choice for potential home buyers!
