Refurbishing my trailer home.


This started off as a simple residing project, though in order to do it right I required going back to the stud work. Rot and black mold found through-out most of exterior walls. Previous shoddy workmanship by previous owners left me with a tedious time consuming project. Already found two illegal electrical junctions (without boxes) within bathroom exterior wall bound by electrical tape.

  • Wow! What an undertaking! It's good thing you had the know-how to take on a remodel of this size! Any shots of the finished product?

  • whoa!! what an overhaul! i used to live in a singlewide. after i got married my wife and i did something very similar, working with walls from the inside (minus the rot and black mold). full respect. you are doing a phenomenal job

    • similar in that we replaced all the interior walls and insulation (as i bought the trailer real cheap as a DIY fixer upper)

  • It is with great remorse that I must announce that my wife has put the kibosh on this project. She secured alternative housing for our family and now this remodel is going to be a full demolition.

  • Oh well! Would have loved to see the finished product, but at least you got a ton of good hands-on experience! There's probably nothing you can't tackle now.

  • oh, man. sorry to hear about project's detour. i liked your b4/after build plan. that sketch was cool. nice redesign of bathroom. enjoy the new place. im sure will be something to diy there too
