Updating a mobile home inside Chatcollage girls
We have covered about 75% of the walls in our house with ply bead, and I’ve shared before how we install bead board walls.It’s not the cheapest option, but it is my favorite.After 17 years of remodeling the inside of our home, we decided that, perhaps, it was time we start doing something about the outside.If you’ve ever taken the siding off of your double wide or mobile home for any reason, you may have seen that there is barely anything there to insulate your home. There is probably the siding, a pathetic layer of wrap that is the consistency of the little sheet of foam that sits on top of a Whitman’s Sampler, then the studs for the walls, and, if you’re lucky, there might be some R11 insulation, and then the gypsum board with the ugly flower print on it on the inside. No, there isn’t any Tyvek wrap, no R30 insulation, no sheets of plywood forming the exterior walls. Anyhoo, we contemplated taking all of the siding off, putting wood exterior walls on the outside of the studs, then wrapping in Tyvek. We got an estimate of ,000 for this job on our 26×48′ exterior walls.This really sounded like a great estimate at first.
