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!
I'm Diane, a writer living in a 1939 Sears Kit house (Hammond model) with my husband, Doug; our orange tabby cat, Paxton; and our yellow Lab, Jodie. We live in a college town, and we love to spend our weekends going to junk shops, thrift stores, and antique barns. Our most recent--and ambitious--project is renovating a 60-year-old modified single-wide mobile home in Kitts Hummock, which is on the Delaware Bay near Dover Air Force Base.
I love the beach, and I'm a very active person who enjoys biking, walking, swimming, and hiking. I also like to sew--I have made dozens of quilts out of T-shirts, old jeans, and other recycled materials. I have two adult children, Alex and Christine.
