Remodeling an Older Mobile Home

My husband and I just bought an older mobile home and now we're in the process of completely remodeling it. We need ideas. Maybe someone has done the same and has before and after pictures, and websites, or anything you have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

My husband and I have enclosed his 20-year-old doublewide with vinyl siding, converted the carport to a garage, laid hardwood floors, completely replaced the kitchen and bathroom cabinets, laid tile floor in laundry room and painted two rooms. The front porch has a new ceramic tile floor and set of concrete steps; a deck with ceramic tile floor, roof and frame for screening has been added to the back of the house. With my son-in-law's help the fence across the back of the property has been replaced. We are currently working to complete painting the living room.

Many of the materials and supplies came from Habitat Restore or craigslist. and are both good resources for how to make modifications.

Some people say never to paint interior walls of a mobile home since the crevice between pieces of drywall is covered by a strip. Just carefully remove the strips and paint them. After the walls have been painted reattach the strips. It helps to number each strip so you know where it goes.

You can also tape the gaps and paint them.
