Mobile Home Remodeling Budget Ideas
There is no doubt that buying a mobile home and remodeling it can be a real bargain. Instead of saving up to buy a traditional single-family home, you can plunk down cash, own your double-wide or single-wide outright and have money to spare to remodel it to make it your dream home.
Make A Plan
One thing to do is to plan how much you can afford to spend. If there are big jobs like electrical, plumbing and carpentry that are needed, set aside enough to hire contractors. Some contractors will not do mobile home plumbing so be prepared to take your time finding these professionals. You want your home to be remodeled up to code so it is best to save the big jobs for the professionals.
There are small jobs that you can probably tackle yourself. Some people have remodeled their kitchen cabinets, front doors, and porches without expert help. Know what your skill level is, but do not be afraid to try something new.
Buy Second Hand When Possible
For your double-wide or single-wide remodel, buy fixtures, cabinets, and lights secondhand or on sale to save money.
You will be surprised at the ideas you will find online for decorating once your remodeling is complete. Many times you can create your own decorative items from things you have around your mobile home.
Decide what style you want your remodel to be. With a budget and second-hand items, you can really go all out on transforming your mobile home. Try for a rustic look or a mid-century modern look.
When you are ready to tackle the remodeling be sure to get multiple estimates from contractors. If you are choosing primitive décor, for example, you will likely get a real value for the work done as this is one of the least expensive mobile home styles to achieve.
Primitive or country remodeling is done to mimic styles for centuries ago when most homes were decorated with handmade items. This is one style that allows you to be more open to handcrafting many things like curtains or accent pieces.
Between getting materials second hand and hiring affordable contractors you will have your mobile home remodeling for a great price and relatively quickly.
Remember to take your time finding help with any plumbing. There are not many contractors that will tackle mobile home plumbing in the US but they are out there.
Plan the remodel of your double-wide or single-wide and plan your remodeling style. You will be able to achieve your goal of creating a dream home.
