I’ve often heard that details are what makes a home so special and after seeing this gorgeous home I’m convinced! This 2000 model double wide is beautifully decorated and has a ton of country cottage manufactured home decorating ideas. It reminds me of a storybook cottage with its rustic, natural tones and rich, warm textures.
Chantal and her husband Joe, of Marathon NY, have lived in their manufactured home since 2005. It sits on 11 acres and has 1960 square feet of beautifully decorated space.
Initially, the couple had no intention of making this property their forever home. They bought it as a starter home because they wanted to start a family and get away from the hassles of renting.
Now, 10 years later they have no intentions of leaving!
The couple quickly fell in love with their quaint little town and grew attached to their home.
Once the decision was made to stay, they began renovating the kitchen. The builder’s grade cabinetry had to go!
Chantal and Joe redesigned the kitchen’s layout and installed cabinets and a center island that they built themselves. They also replaced the flooring, countertops, and backsplash.
After the kitchen was finished, they began on the dining and living rooms.
Joe has more than 10 years experience in construction so they were able to update the entire home by themselves.
Though Chantal admits it wasn’t easy, she estimates that they were able to save more than $30,000 in labor costs by doing the remodel themselves.
They also saved money by tearing down an old barn and reusing the wood as flooring, trim, and shelving.
Their living room floor is covered in the barn wood. The rest of the wood made it onto various surfaces around the house such as the island counter top and breakfast bar. They made smaller shelving out of the smaller scraps of wood.
The living room in Chantal’s home continues with more stylish country cottage manufactured home decorating ideas. She manages to create a vintage vibe with a mix of beautiful patina and unique antique items.
Chantal surrounds herself with beautiful things! Even the family pet is gorgeous, what a majestic animal!

Their daughter’s room was recently updated. It looks like a room straight out of the pages of an Anthropologie catalog!
The bathroom carries on the primitive country cottage decor.
Even the laundry room got an update!
Of course, the exterior of the home got an update too!
The family built a 32′ x 24′ foot deck off the kitchen last year. Chantal quickly made the space her own by adding custom seating and outdoor decor.
There’s no denying Chantal’s talent for home decor!
It’s not easy taking the ‘factory look’ out of a factory-built home but Chantel has definitely

This home is another wonderful example of the endless potential that manufactured homes have.
