  1. Is this single-wide trailer on a permanent foundation..this seems to be a problem when considering adding on and attaching to a structure that may shift.

    1. Hi Lindy,

      When you build an addition onto a mobile home of any size it must be a self-supporting structure that can sway and shift on its own. Only the ‘shell’ is attached to the home (siding will wrap around home and addition, roof will butt up to it). So, there wouldn’t be much issue in that regard. Thanks so much!

  2. This is so beautiful we got a free mobile home ,starting from 0….no money but im hoping one day it can look like yours…

  3. Crystal, many thanks for this one! It happens to be nearly exactly what we’d like to do for the exterior of a new manufactured we will be getting for our 5 acre property we are purchasing here in SW Washington state.
    It makes such a difference to see great photos of ideas that have been until now just floating around my head. :) These will provide continual inspiration as we design and build our home over time.

    1. Hi Jamie!

      Unfortunately, I was never able to make contact with the architect or owners so, for now anyway, there’s no way to find out what colors they used. It is a gorgeous golden yellow color, huh?

      I looked at the Valspar color chart and thought the color called ‘Jackson Square’ looked close, but the color called ‘Pantone Solar Power’ had more of a yellow punch to it. It’s so hard to find the right paint color and that room is beautiful. I hope I helped a tad! Thanks so much for reading MMHL!

  4. Wow! Crystal, this is the most inspiring single wide remodel I have seen yet!! I love how they carefully added on and out and used remarkable materials! I especially like the exterior paneling.
    Thanks as always for finding these gems!! :)

    1. Hi Jeni!

      It’s great to hear from you! I like this one too, even if it’s waaaayy out of my budget!

      I hope you are doing well and staying warm this winter. It’s always great to hear from you, thanks for taking the time to comment!

  5. Oh my…..yes I am very green…….I love this. Thanks for the great things you show us and providing inspiration…..

  6. Hi Crystal, I just finished fixing up the singlewide on my little homestead as a vacation rental cottage, and your page (and Pinterest board) were so inspiring and helpful! They prepared me for the project. Thanks for all the great information! We’re thrilled with how ours came out, and love hanging out there when guests aren’t there.

    1. Hi Elise!

      Thank you so much for your kind words! I’m thrilled that MMHL came in handy for you and I appreciate you taking the time out to let me know! I bet your little cottage is gorgeous!

      I hope you continue to stop by every now and then, even though you’re finished! Maybe I could even talk you into letting me share the updates you made someday. I’m always looking for projects to share ;)

      I hope you and your family have a wonderful new year and thanks again for taking the time out to comment. It really does mean a lot to me.

      Thank you so very much!

  7. This is amazingly gorgeous !. Wonder what the end dollar cost was to do this wonderful makeover?. Great ideas made for a great home !

    1. Hi Sandy! I agree, this is gorgeous and I wondered the same thing about the cost.

      I did a little cost comparison on the siding for our home, a 58×12 single wide, and we could completely re-side it with a high gauge sheet metal for around $1400 (thats just sheet metal, we would still need trim and screws). The window and doors, cedar posts and decking were probably the most expensive parts but they opted to go with minimal style which probably saved a great deal.

      These remodels get me so excited, can you :) Thanks for commenting!

  8. Wow that is the most amazing transformation ever! Love everything about this home and the only thing missing is the horse looking over the fence! LOVE THIS JOB!!! Excellent on every part. The painting of the paneling is what I have to do to mine, it’s dark and makes me feeling like I live in a cave. I do have bright lovely windows but it is still dark inside. I know that painting will make all the difference. Love the fact you used re-purposed flooring, I need to do that, because the price of actual wood is far beyond my means.
    Lovely job, I am so happy for you that you live in such a lovely space now, you really made it your own.

    1. Hi Sue!
      I have a feeling the horses are somewhere close! I simply re-posted the home, it was originally found on the architect’s profile at and there’s a few additional photos if you want to take a look (just click the link at the beginning of the article).

      We had panelling in our single wide but instead of being dark brown it was a grey-brown and not at all pretty. Painting the walls really did make all the difference! It’s almost like a whole new house :)

      Thanks so much for commenting and I hope to hear from you again real soon!


      1. Thanks Crystal I will go look at more pictures. I am very limited to what I can do but paint I can get ahold of, even “mistake” cans at the paint store are cheap! Once I get homes for all my fish tanks, I can get near the walls to paint.
        Thanks for the info and look forward to more of your posts!

  9. WOW…WOW…WOW…I am blown away. This place is a dream as I LOVE sheet metal and clean modern design elements. Great job and so inspiring to me to continue to work on my little place. Just goes to show you that with some imagination & risk, beautiful out-of-the-box (hee hee) transformations can happen to our vintage trailers. Did you get a roofing contractor to do the outside sheet metal? It looks so fine.

    Thanks Crystal for finding and posting such great Mo-bile renos!
