Fleetwood Double Wide Becomes Couple’s First Home

This week we are sharing another remodel from our Mobile Home Living Facebook group. Taylor and her husband are sharing their Fleetwood double wide remodel and the journey to making it their first home.

A Home Full of Hidden Potential

Taylor and her husband live in Ohio and bought their Fleetwood double wide a couple of years ago with plans to make it their first home. Fortunately, they were able to see past the worn carpet and dingy walls and see the potential hidden within the home.

Fleetwood Double Wide Becomes Cozy Home

Taylor and her husband started with her favorite room of the home, the living room. They added ceiling and floor trim as well as took down the wallpaper border and gave the room a fresh coat of paint and then added some vinyl flooring that flows into the kitchen and laundry room.

The makeover continued with fresh carpet in the bedrooms as well as the addition of trim in each room. We especially love the trim around the doors which changes the look of them without having to buy new ones.

Final Thoughts From Taylor

Taylor tells us they spent around $10,000 on their remodeling project. But it was well worth the money. However, just like with any remodeling project there were some challenges, the biggest being the struggle to replace things that are made specifically for mobile homes. Also, Taylor says to be sure that the mobile home is well insulated with good windows and a well cared for roof.

It’s hard to believe this is the same home that Taylor and her husband started out with. Next up, Taylor says will be new kitchen cabinets and updates to the bathrooms. We are sure they will turn out as great as the rest of their projects!

As always, thank you for reading Mobile Home Living.
