  1. This remodel is so inspiring! I want to know where to find the window frames I see throughout the house, especially in the kitchen and bedrooms. They look gorgeous, and the wider frames give them a brighter, cleaner look. Sources, please?

  2. Thank you over and over again. Had originally considered building a home but now consider buying a manufactured home and remodeling to my personality. Your website provides great insights to endless possibilities.

  3. Love, love the decorating. I have a double wide, 2006 and would love to update the kitchen, living room combo. Getting ideas via this site and a few others. My big dilemma is who can do the work and a reasonable price here in Santa Cruz, CA.

    1. Hi Esther!

      I would call your local mobile home supply center and/or dealers and ask if they know anyone. That seems to be the safest and most reliable method of finding contractors that will work on mobile homes.

      Thanks for reading MHL! Best of luck!

  4. I am so glad I found this site! My husband and I are downsizing and relocating to Arizona, where we can pay cash for a manufactured home — but we have never done anything like this, and it does appear daunting.

    I’m really inspired by what I’ve seen, and have far more confidence that we don’t have to break the bank to put a home together that we can enjoy for years to come.

    1. In designing the structure of a home plays an important role. This particular lot had an old mobile home on it . The clients removed the old home and went to work with me in designing what they wanted . We figured out the dimensions of the lot and what was in line with the state and the parks set backs. We came up with a three section home that maximized the space. Structurally we placed in the 2 by 6 inch exterior walls and heavy roof load and all the windows / recessed lights/ electrical and plumbing at the factory. HUD requires a home that is somewhat finished in order to pass through State inspection. The clients placed in cabinetry at factory and left the appliances out / . This took planning on certain dimensions of appliances to coordinate kitchen correctly. We also opted for a number of skylights to allow as much lighting and openess to the home. I have pictures of how the home came in and the transformation of the unit from the factory to the final pictures you see here. It was great working with the clients on the structural design of their new home and ordering it for them through the factory.

  5. WOW! Absolutely stunning! I never even knew there was such a thing as a triple wide!! I do love my single, but would not hesitate to move into that beauty!! TFS!

  6. Can’t wait to show this article to my husband. Just remodeled a bathroom in our manufactured home and took the board & batton 2/3 up the walls for height. He said it wouldn’t look right but is now eating his words!
