We've Been Featured!

"Some people have the coolest stuff."

That's how a blog entry on a website called Mobile and Manufactured Home Living begins.

And it's about OUR little beach house!

Doug and I were so surprised to learn that we had been featured in an extensive writeup on this site, which is run by a woman named Crystal Adkins.  We were also extremely flattered that Crystal took the time to gather so many of our before, during, and after photos and that she said such nice stuff about us.

Like "the couple handled the entire remodel like champs, making the impossible possible time and again."

Crystal finished the writeup by saying, "This is such a great vintage mobile home remodeling story! Not only is the end result amazing, but it's a great example of the endless possibilities that a vintage mobile home has. Plus, this is about as close to a mobile home jackpot as one can find - fine home, great location, and bought at a great price."

Thanks, Crystal. We love our little place, but it's great to know others think it's cool too.  And it's really interesting to see some of the other makeovers on your site!


  1. Congrats! It was really great to see all those highlight photos in one place, and your transformation is certainly deserving of a wider audience. I don't know if you're a reader of Retro Renovation, but I bet Pam Kuebler would love to see what you've done.

  2. Thanks, Rita, I'll check that out!

  3. I just read the write-up and I love your house. I bought a 1975 single wide last November and love it. If you want to see, visit my blog at
    It wasn't gutted but I put in floors and painted. I want to do the kitchen and bath when I can afford it. Love your kitchen curtain below the sink! Now following you. Love, Linda

  4. Wow, Linda, thanks for stopping by--and staying! I will check out your blog too!

  5. You both absolutely deserve the feature. You did amazing work, and have a wonderful but real space for it.

    1. Thanks so much, Schaughn, we just got back from another great weekend there, and we continue to be amazed at how much fun it is!

  6. Love this vintage mobile home! Since this is an old post, not sure if you will see this, but what color is the inside paint? Thank-you, Diane

  7. Thanks--I haven't posted in awhile but I still get email notifications when someone comments. The entire inside is painted Sherwin Williams Eider White with Sherwin Williams Sea Salt as the accent color. Hope this helps!
