  • Google and Pinterest are your friends, I would start there or go to open houses or new mobile home communities and check them out and see what amenities they have that you like that you want in your own home. I used to go with my MIL when she was still alive, it was great fun!

    It is true that mobile homes have faucets, plumbing, electrical fittings, doors, and windows that are not the same as stick-built houses. Having said that, there are products out there now that adjust to these like shark-bite plumbing, and adaptable electrical which allows you to install new faucets and such using regular store bought fixtures. The tubs in mobile homes are a challenge since they, too, were often off-size, but with the refinishing and/or re-fitting over tubs that they have now, you options are endless. Your unique size doors and windows can be refitted with common size with a saw and handyman. So, draw up a plan, write down your ideas and remodel away! You have got this, you can do it your way, finally!

    There are a few here on Hometalk - http://www.hometalk.com/search/posts?filter=mobile%20home%20remodel, perhaps they'll help.

    We put drywall on the walls and painted them, updated our countertops and carpeting. Then we put in ceiling fans and added trim to the doors. We were on a tight budget so I was making all of our curtains and bedding out of sheets. Even made some of the kids summer clothes out of them, when I found new looking ones at the thrift store.
