  1. Hello,
    Thanks for taking the time to develop this great website.
    I bought an old (1968) manufactured home this year and I’m remodeling slow but sure. I tore out all of the old carpet and pad and I’m close to floor decision time. Is it very uncommon to install hardwood flooring in a mfg home? Is it too heavy?
    It seems most of the homes have a laminate of some sort. Do you have a recommendation on a website I can visit to clearly see options?
    Thanks

    1. Hi Mike!

      Thanks for taking the time to read and comment :) Great question! Flooring is a tough decision. We decided to go with laminate in our ’78 single wide but only cause it was in our price range and was just so easy to install. I was looking for photos of flooring that was taken in a mobile home during our planning but I wasn’t able to find many. I think your best bet would be just to visit the flooring sites and of course, look through this site ;) I plan on organizing the site better so that if you want flooring ideas you just click on ‘flooring’ but it’s gonna take a while cause I’m not sure how to do it and need to read about it.

      When you hear about weight issues with manufactured homes they are mainly speaking about transporting the homes. Once sited permanently, there’s little to worry about but even if the home does have to be moved in the future I doubt any kind of flooring will cause you problems. The homes can handle a lot more than people give them credit for (if they go down a road at 65mph, they are OK in my book..lol)

      Now, if you were to add some heavy stucco siding, then you may have to reinforce the home (single wides get their strength from the top/roof so as long as that isn’t altered you have little to worry about).

      I’m sure you’re home is gonna be beautiful when it’s all done and I hope to hear from you again!
      Best,
      Crystal

  3. My boyfriend bought a double-wide and we want to re-model the kitchen. I loved the pictures you have here! I wanted to know if you know how we could get some more advice and ideas.

  4. I'm sure you could! The 2013 awards are in April so we'll see if the curve/circular theme is still big. I think it would be a big selling point.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it very much!
