“My wife and I found this single wide mobile home in the mountains of North Carolina.
The price was right, the location was great and with her great talent we got to work to make it a great little place in the mountains to get away”.
I am trying to remodel an older (1977) trailer to look modern, fresh and newer. How can I make my trailer look really nice inside and outside without spending too much?
How can I paint the ugly dark brown doors and dark paneling? Usually you need to use something that keeps the background from bleeding through.
There is no point in remodeling if the cost of repairs cannot be justified by the ability to obtain a higher value after the remodel.
After a realistic top-market, after-repair value is determined, a homeowner should prioritize the most important items in the home that need TLC and then seek estimates by a number of contractors on the cost of the repairs.
Manufactured homes are subject to the Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards, or “HUD Code,” rather than local building code.I just let it dry and sanded if areas were not smooth and I bought a heavy wallpaper (Sherwin Williams) that was discounted and wallpapered my whole living room. I hate dark paneling because I want as much of the sunlight and light as possible. I think I used about 5 to 6 gallons on a 14 x 70 trailer. I used one that was supposed to cover with one coat.I just bought wallpaper paste and put it up as usual. For the outside, I washed with a pressure washer, which you can rent. I only put one coat on and I wished later I had put on two coats. I otherwise find decorating things at resale stores and yard sales.Manufactured homes typically depreciate in value over time, while stick-built homes tend to appreciate.The older a mobile home is, the less likely that remodeling or adding upgrades makes financial sense.
