The Unforgettable Mobile Home, Part 2


I wrote a bit about this gorgeous double wide in Kentucky back in the fall. I had found it on Country Living’s website. I wasn’t able to find too many photos at that time, I was new to blogging and didn’t know what I was doing ; ). The photos I did show were so inspiring and has been one of our most popular posts.

If you missed it, don’t worry, not only have I found more photos but I also found 3 videos!
Teresa Smith turned her double wide into a gorgeous home and the popularity that she is getting from it is well deserved and such an inspiration for all of us that live in manufactured homes. Her creativity and eye for detail is making heads turn and minds change quickly!
In one of the videos the owner, Teresa Smith, says “ I don’t think a mobile home is any different than a house. I mean these walls are sheetrock. I don’t think there’s any difference at all. There’s not. Just do what you want to do. Feel free. I mean people live in their homes for years and don’t do what they really want to do. They worry about resale value. Well, are you going to live your whole life worrying about that? You’ll never be happy with your home. I mean I have never been happier with the place than I am here. This is my favorite of all. My favorite. The least expensive and my favorite.”  I absolutely agree with her, too! The only difference is that our homes are built in a factory and brought to us. Meaning they are more environmentally friendly and more affordable (and the negative resale value of a mobile home is actually very misunderstood, they do appreciate! I have found some very interesting statistic on appreciation and I’m writing the post right now, I’ll post it soon).

Manufactured homes are a wonderful option 
and anyone that thinks differently is simply uneducated on the matter.

I have found 3 videos that show everything in the kitchen, studio and living room along with interviews with the owners.  I’ll link to them all so you can really see this gorgeous home.

  1. Please email me when the magazine is ready. Love this blog. Im living in Ireland, Im not on facebook so are you on any other social media sites?

  2. I can see that you are putting a lots of efforts into your blog. Keep posting the good work.Some really helpful information in there

      • I would like to get the videos that are mentioned; please share how I might get them. And, thank you very much. My husband has died and I anticipate moving (downsizing) into a mobile home very soon. I’ve loved the country, shabby chic, french – you name it – looks for so long; I hope to retain many special items that my husband and I traveled many miles to hunt and buy.

      • Hi Norma,

        They are on the bottom of the post. Just click on the “Inside the Workspace Video” “Inside the Living Room” and “Inside the Kitchen”


  3. BEAUTIFUL AND INSPIRING! My question is concerning your floors… what material did you use for your flooring? Thank you for inviting me into your home! It was a real pleasure. susan

  4. Imagine my surprise as I was surfing your web site to actually see my house! Wow what an honor! I’ve always loved my home and find that you can do anything to a mobile home that you can do a stick built house! Thanks for the feature!

    • Hi Theresa! It’s an honor to finally get to speak to the owner of this beautiful home! Your home has been such an inspiration for me. You certainly have a talent with decorating and hope to one day get your home featured properly here on MMHL. I’ll be contacting you ;)

      Thanks so much for commenting!


  5. Hi Shirlee! I wouldn't change any home if I knew I wasn't going to be
    in it for long either, I would save my money for that forever
    home…but for those that pretty much know they are keeping their
    mobile for life there is no reason to not have that home exactly how
    they want it..a little paint, a little work here and there and you
    would have to be happier in it.

    The owner does have a great eye for the salvaged architectural
    things…lots of different non intended use going on in there, I love
    it and just wanted to show all the new readers (from the giveaways)
    what MHL was all about..

    Thanks so much for being a regular reader and commenting! I can't
    express how much I appreciate you!

  6. Hi again, did you know Theresa has a blog called Time Worn Interiors on Blogger? There is a link to her old blog countrygardens-theresa-smith on the sidebar. Just wanted to give you the heads up in case you weren't aware. I think the content is mostly related to their antiques business but I don't follow it regularly.

  7. Hi Debbie! This is a very inspirational lady and she makes a wonderful
    spokesman for all mobile homes..I just can't get over how awesome it

  8. Love the story and she is 100% right. I love my mobile home. Its on our own land and we can do what ever we want to it just like a stick built.
