A Modern Double Wide Remodel
This newest featured home is courtesy of Houzz.com. The designer, Dawn Moore is the owner of Moore About… Design. This modern double wide remodel embodies the best about manufactured homes: their potential to become any type of home as well as their ability to become any style.
Focusing on pre-fab and a reduced impact on our earth, Moore About… Design concepts target clients with a savvy design eye who want sustainable building as well as sustainable living. The test lab – Dawn’s own residence – was published three weeks after completion instantly branding her work as high-style at low cost. Individuality is a hallmark of Moore About… Designing, enveloping life and its treasures in an existing dwelling or a new custom home.
While there are no before photos of this home the owner wrote a review stating the cost of the remodel was between $50,000 to $100,000 and goes on to say that Dawn’s design ideas and style took a tired old house and turned it into an open and warm home. I couldn’t agree more! Here’s the wonderfully finished manufactured home, along with the designers own notes:
Custom windows and expanded sliders were added to this “double wide” manufactured home to embrace the sweeping views. The marriage line and support posts were clad and stained to mimic the pine tree trunks in the distance.
A roll front cabinet allows for hiding countertop appliances and the gray subway tiles continue the silvery/gray tones of the stainless appliances.
I removed overhead cabinets on either side of the sink to increase the windows and allow for the expansive views. IKEA cabinets and butcher block add a warm vibe to the industrial light fixtures.
Dining space flows from kitchen to deck with a wire pendant light to add sculpture without heaviness.
This space allowed for a soaking tub centered on a 5’x5′ window to “soak” in the view. The tub deck is Doug Fir, stained and treated with polyurethane.
Lighting that is equally emitted from the sides is far more flattering than a single bulb from above! Three slim pendants across this 5 ft. space worked perfectly.
