  1. Hi Crystal!

    Love this site. Just moved into an old 12X66 (?) mobile home rental in May of last year.

    It was cheap (450 a month) so I chose it while I work on my credit score.

    Anyway, I want to make some cosmetic changes so my little place is cozy, clean and comfortable.

    How do I paint/prep the wood looking paneling that is on every wall?

    This site has really got me motivated. The insulation underneath has been destroyed by animals.
    I live in southern GA and one 24 hour electric bill was $18.95!
    I hope to talk to the management and work out something mutually beneficial
    Maybe I pay for the work and I don’t pay rent for two months?

    Anyway, thank you for your work on this site.
    Great work.

    1. Hi Beth,

      Adding a couple rolls of insulation would be a big help. If your home isn’t too low you may be able to hire a couple handymen to do it. As for painting the walls, it’s all about cleaning and priming. The walls tend to be a magnet for air particles so you washing them down (without soaking the panels) will make priming and painting a lot easier. Kilz is a great primer but there are some great primer and paints out there, too.

      Let me know how it goes!
