Recycling a mobile home chassis or frame is a great way to help the environment and your wallet. You can build trailers to haul with, a small home or studio, or you can do what this creative builder did and create a new workshop!
This avid woodworker took a dilapidated mobile home and with a little salvaging, and recycling the mobile home chassis, ended up with a great workshop to house his woodworking tools. It’s a great design and a great example of the unlimited possibilities that all mobile homes have, even those that have been completely destroyed or damaged.
I found this awesome recycle on LumberJocks.com, a forum site for woodworkers where projects are shared and questions are happily answered about all things wood. Lots of great information is available and there’s a lot of gorgeous wood designs scattered throughout the site. I immediately liked this one because it reused something that some don’t think to reuse – mobile home chassis or frames.
The user named Sillac shared this wonderful build. He writes, “My shop is built on the frame of an old mobile home (got it for free, I manage a Mobile Home Community and it was one that was so far gone that we were going to demo it, so I saved the bones) that was 60 feet long. I cut it down to 48 feet and it is 13 1/2 feet wide on the outside.”
