Buying an affordable home and turning it into a true dream home is what Mobile Home Living is all about and this rustic cabin manufactured home remodel is a perfect example of that!

The McCormacks bought their 2002 Spirit manufactured home in 2009. The 2200 sq ft home has a great view – it sits on the water of Oklahoma’s Lake Tenkiller.

Rebecca has kindly allowed us full access to every room and shared lots of great advice for our own rustic cabin manufactured home remodeling dreams.

“Most people wouldn’t even consider throwing money into a mobile home, but we’re very happy with our remodel.”

Just like every manufactured home, it had potential and Rebecca was able to see it.

“It was traditional interior with dark green carpet and pink and green stripes and floral vinyl walls.  It was terrible.  So we began with replacing the carpet, and the bank account began to dwindle at that point.”

Before the Rustic Cabin Manufactured Home Remodel

The home started out in great condition. The front exterior had already been updated with shingled vinyl siding and a new deck but the couple had a more traditional log cabin vision and they absolutely nailed it!

After the Rustic Cabin Manufactured Home Remodel

The exterior was completely wrapped in log siding, the deck was transformed into a covered porch, rock skirting was installed, a garage was added to the side of the home, and lots of beautiful landscaping was added.

It’s amazing!

Rebecca’s husband did the landscaping. He installed a sprinkler system and laid river rock in the circle drives.

The log siding was trimmed in a darker wood that highlights the new windows. It’s a great look!

If you think the exterior remodel was amazing, just wait till you see the interior!

Here’s a photo of the kitchen before the McCormack’srustic cabin manufactured home remodel. It was a fine home but it wasn’t their style. That’s why manufactured homes are so great – you can actually afford to make changes to the home after you buy it!

Rebecca described her vision, “I wanted a rustic log home and the interior is done in wood paneling and lots of glazed walls in earth tones, which I did myself.  Of course, we mud, taped and textured all the walls. Big tip:  Be sure and seal the texture with Kilz.

The kitchen was completely gutted and rebuilt. Updates included new engineered flooring, appliances, cabinets, countertops, and backsplash.

” My favorite room is probably the kitchen.”

Dark wood trim frames the large mirrors (perfect for making a small room seem larger) and sets a stage for the soaking tub.

Rebecca gave us some figures on the remodel, “We didn’t keep exact figures on the total remodel, but we estimate between $60-70K. ”

She continued, “We have 166 acres of forest behind us, so the deer and all sorts of wildlife are in the yard every day.  It’s a piece of paradise.  No one is aware it’s a mobile and the few we have told are shocked.  You have to look under the house to find out it’s a mobile home.  Our local realtor said it’s a show home, and people who visit ask us what it would take to buy it, so I guess we did something right.”

Thank you, Rebecca, for sharing your beautiful rustic cabin manufactured home remodel with us! You have proven that anything is possible with a manufactured home and that dreams do come true!
