It’s no surprise that while searching for our monthly for sale post we came across this exceptional 1982 mobile home in Florida. More and more homeowners are taking older mobile homes and transforming them into masterpieces. From the stone exterior to the exquisite interior this home is a must-see, and full of remodeling ideas you can use in your own mobile home.
(You can visit the Realtor listing to see all the details of this 1982 mobile home and more pictures than we are sharing here.)
First, let’s talk about the updates that were done to make this 1982 mobile home ready for those nasty Hurricanes that Florida is known for. Over 2000 hurricane brackets and plates are in the roof truss system, piers, and walls. 2014 saw the replacement of the roof. At the time of the Sellers’ remodel, permits were obtained to reconstruct the house in accordance with the most recent hurricane standards and building codes. These standards included engineering for hurricane tie-downs and high-impact windows, doors, and all structural areas. This home is as Hurricane ready as one can be.
Not only did they make the home Hurricane ready, but in 2019 roof solar panels were installed, and both the walls and ceiling were insulated with spray foam. Finally, the home was re-sided with faux stone siding. This along with the stone landscaping created a home with exceptional curb appeal.

Craftsmanship on Display
As we move into the interior of the home that’s where the real craftsmanship is on display. Frosted sidelites on both sides of the entry door open up to an exquisite interior featuring artistically crafted premium wood veneers & custom hardwood furnishings throughout. Most of the wood used is bird’s eye maple, cherry, walnut & zebra. The home also has been updated with recessed lighting as well as other modern lighting accents. There’s even an 80′ TV with a/sliding picture panels that close over the TV when not in use.
The kitchen is a dream that includes soft-close custom cabinets and drawers, and a wet bar that would make Bing Crosby jealous!
The dining room includes a custom fireplace with glass displays made from zebra wood that span from floor to ceiling.
The bedrooms are also full of amenities like custom-made furniture including a tv console that swivels 180 degrees from the office space to the master bedroom portion of the room. The guest bedroom includes custom furniture as well as a custom-built floating bed with hydraulics for storing items under the mattress.
Both of the baths include double vanities, and extra large showers with multiple shower heads to create a spa experience.
This exceptional 1982 mobile home is a one-of-a-kind remodel full of custom craftsmanship that has us in awe. We had hoped to find a picture or two of the home in its original 1982 form but couldn’t come up with one, but we are quite sure this was a gut to the studs project. At over 2300 square feet, this home was definitely redesigned to create a more open living space with bigger bedrooms and baths than what would have been in its original floor plan. We have to say we love what they did with the design.
One last tidbit to share, the home that the community is located in is a world-renowned nudist community in Florida and there are numerous amenities included with your membership.
As always, thanks for reading Mobile Home Living®.
