Bold Single Wide Makeover


Whimsical, wild, and original are some adjectives you could use to describe this single wide makeover. This single wide is a very soon to be Carolina Beach, NC vacation rental. I applaud the owner for doing it, too. Being unique is great for that business. It’s as cheerful as it is memorable. It screams fun and carefree and it’s gotta keep you from taking life to seriously. A weekend in this setting is sure to make the blues go away.

I found this home on Houzz. If you’re looking for inspiration for remodeling or updating your home, this should be your second stop (of course Mobile Home Living would be your first).

I bet you won’t soon forget this home. It really appeals to me for it’s funky, colorful style. I imagine that a weekend in this home would produce immense inspiration and an outlet to wild creativity. Boldness would be embraced and fun would be guaranteed. Add water, sand, and sun to the mixture and you’ve got a winner!

Thanks so much for reading Mobile and Manufactured Home Living!

  1. Hi Crystal;
    Your website was spotlighted on Yahoo this morning and I have been perusing it for a couple of hours now just enjoying the inspiration you have gathered!!
    Thank you for bringing more attention to Mobile Homes and the changes that can be made, I have gotten tons of ideas!

  2. Okay, one word- Funky! But funky good. Due to our pocket book my wife and I have turned a number of “sow’s” ears into silk purses. Always small homes and usually in a country style. But we could live very easily in something like this far out pad. (Sorry. Just had to throw that in.) In 1969 I moved to San Diego county at the height of the hippie era and at one of the two hippie “hot spots” in the country. Of course most button down types frowned on everything they did, I always thought they at least had part of it right. I’m so glad that people are finally coming to the conclusion that big and expensive isn’t always the answer and much of the time only serves to frustrate folks. It’s great to see folks living in homes the way THEY want them to look and not what the “norm” calls for.
    Great article. Thanks.

    1. Hi Freddie! Thanks for commenting! I couldn’t agree more with you! I’m loving how the tides have turned and what was once stigmatized is more accepted these days. This is especially the case with mobile and manufactured homes and small homes. It’s good to be different 🙂

      Hope to hear from you again!
