Mobile Home Remodel
“This shows the extent of our remodel,” says Tanille. “We took it down to the studs. It had been so neglected that the floors were rotted through, the insulation was paper thin and the ceiling was sagging. All of this was rectified due to a lot of hard work, and now we have a solid little structure!”
Out of all the rooms in their trailer, the Leals’ favorite space to renovate was the kitchen. “The cabinets took about three swings with a sledgehammer and literally fell apart,” recalls Tanille. “The floor was so rotted that is was buckled.”
The Leals’ bedroom is their sanctuary. “Originally the bathroom was in the middle of the trailer and the bedroom was so small only a twin size bed would fit comfortably. We considered bunk beds, but for the sake of our marriage decided to redesign the layout of the space. The result is a surprisingly spacious and beautiful bedroom.”
Thrifty Kitchen Finds
The selling point of the trailer? The windows. “The first thing I loved about the trailer, even in its worst state, was that the living room was all windows,” recalls Tanille. “Even though it is small it feels very open because there is so much light coming in. We spend most of our time in this room and it’s a great room to entertain in. One of the unexpected benefits of living here is that when we do have guests everyone is gathered in this one small room. This makes for great conversation and wonderful memories. Our friends seem to be comfortable here and love hanging out for hours. They have told us that they feel more cozy and comfortable here than they ever did in our large living room in our former house
