Many homeowners feel that they need a little bit extra space on their mobile home after living for a few years in a mobile home. If you are a person who is planning to buy cheap manufactured homes, then we highly recommend you to carefully assess the plans of your new home and consult with your homebuilder to ensure that there is enough space in the home for you and your family.
However, if you are already a manufactured homeowner who is looking for a little bit extra space in his/her home, then there are two options available to you. The first one is to sell your house and to look for another one with extra living space, while the second one is to simply renovate your home.
If your mobile home is placed in a mobile home park, then expanding your home might be a little bit difficult due to the limited space offered. On the other hand, if your mobile home is on a leased or own property, then you can easily renovate it without any restrictions on land or space.
Adding a bit of additional living space will actually be a welcoming change to your old mobile home and it will even bring a fresh and attractive look even to a tight living or cramped environment. Here are a few factors that you should keep in mind before renovating your mobile home.
Keep the Walls and Floors Intact
You will have to ensure that the additions that you are making on your mobile home will not negatively affect the walls and flooring of the structure before renovating your home. If there happens to be any minor damages to your walls during renovating, then you should ask your local builder to repair them immediately.
Adding Outside Structures
The safest way to renovate or remodel a mobile house is by adding a few structures on the outside of the home. For example, adding a carport or a porch will bring a fresh look to your mobile home, and it will not affect the structural integrity of the factory built mobile home.
Mobile Home Financing
If you are planning to renovate your mobile home, then the first thing to do is to secure a loan, which will finance the proposed improvements. If your mobile home is sitting on a permanent foundation, then getting a loan from a bank will be a lot easier.
