  1. Oh my gosh! What a fabulous makeover! I am so very happy to have found your site. I was looking at pictures of the Tradewinds model and clicked on another photo I saw in Google images and it bought me right to you! (Thank you Google) I have been considering buying a mobile home well two actually because I wanted to put them together to make one large home. These remodels give me hope! Honestly I never considered buying a used mobile home but now, well I have seen some really nice older models that are just begging to be redone.

    Thank you so much Crystal for starting this, it is going to be such a great help. I consider mobile home living a smart choice. Mortgage free living I’m coming for you!

    1. Glad you found us, Raedell (love the name!),

      There’s a lot of great benefits to buying an older mobile home and remodeling it. Just make sure you have a home with good bones. Look forward to hearing from you again!

    1. Hi Marty,

      This was likely a very labor intensive project. Load bearing walls appear to have been modified with a central beam modification. An engineer and architect was probably there while it was being done to ensure the homes structural integrity stayed intact.

      Thanks so much for reading MHL!

    2. The beginning of the article says: “Factory-built homes have limited ceiling height due to transporting restrictions. Most 1988 model manufactured homes offered only eight foot side walls often paired with cathedral ceilings in the living, dining and kitchen areas.

      The couple remedied the lower ceilings and enclosed layout by removing the wall that separated the kitchen from the living room. The single wall opened up the living and dining areas as well as the kitchen.” I have a ’98 Fleetwood with what I call pitched ceilings which look very similar to theirs. On newer model MH’s there are no load bearing walls. Not sure if ’88 is considered newer. Essentially they are two single wides smooshed together.

  2. Absolutely stunning home! Wish I could wiggle my nose and mine would look almost the same. I think I would need a pop of colour on a wall or two, but other than that, it’s perfect. I understand the light thing for sure, it does make a difference, the space definitely looks bigger, but I love colour too. :) Thank you for sharing this one for sure!
