  1. Thank you so much! I just discovered your newsletter sign up from Pintrest and I have moved into a single wide mobile home 10 months ago. So I am very excited to receive ideas to upgrade my mobile home.
    Again, Thank you!

    1. Hi Athena! Welcome to Mobile Home Living! I’ve been exactly where you are a few times (that’s why I started this little blog. Just make sure you open the email you get and confirm the subscription by clicking the link. ‘They’are pretty strict about newsletters.

      When/if you do make changes take lots of photos. It’s fun to look back on the changes and I’m always looking for makeovers and remodeling stories.

      Thanks for signing up!

    1. Hi Patty,

      Kilz Primer is the favorite primer. Opinions differ on paint, but most will agree that you get what you pay for. Buy the best you that you can afford. You may want to research information from paint professionals. I like Valspar but don’t like Glidden. Everyone has differing opinions.

      Best of luck!

  2. Crystal what a bonus this is. There are so many mobile homes and parks but like you said not enough information about remodels and what works and what doesn’t. I am in the process of remodeling and will be submitting photos of my accomplishments sometime in the coming year. I have a 800 ft square, single wide mobile that is actually bringing me a lot of fun and creative challenges. Keep up your good work with this effort.

  3. I’m so glad that someone is seeing that there’s a lack of info geared towards mobile home living. But what I need is info that addresses the problem of weight, thickness of walls, etc. when renovating these homes. Standard doors don’t fit, walls are too thin to hang heavy objects, etc., and I only know this through 22+ years of aggravation! I’d love to see some solid info on these and other issues that will provide info on more than just the decorating (and fun!) part of reno. Thank you!

    1. Hi Jenna!

      There’s lots of information scattered around here but I don’t have the best organization – sorry about that. You can look under Archive to see all of our articles – there’s lots of repair and remodel info!

      Interior doors and bathtubs will usually need to be purchased from a mobile home supply store or you will need to modify them to fit.

      A manufactured home still has studs, it’s built with similar building techniques as a site-built home just in a factory and on a chassis, so whenever you hang something heavy you’ll have to use the stud (there will probably be 12″, 14″ or 16″ between each one). I’ve seen some hanging systems for sheet rock and such but I wouldn’t trust them with anything heavy.

      Hope that helps! If you have any specific questions just let me know!
