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?

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.
