“You can do absolutely anything in a mobile or manufactured home. The sky is the limit. Just do it, prove them all wrong,” Tracy Fields says and she did just that.

The average cost to remodel a home in 2019 is $36,121 but Tracy’s 1997 Fuqua double wide remodel in Klamath Falls, Oregon, was completely updated for less than $32,000 and it’s a beautiful study in warmth and light.

This Stained Wood Ceiling is Beautiful!

The farmhouse home decor craze has been in full swing for several years. It’s a great style with a focus on white, imperfect surfaces, and natural materials but what happens when you forego white and add rich browns and jewel-tone color instead?

It’s refreshing to see a homeowner go another way with the beautiful farmhouse style. It doesn’t have to be all-white!

Wood ceiling planks are one of our favorite mobile home ceiling replacement materials and it’s easy to see why. No other material can give a home the warmth and texture that wood gives.

Tracy painted her walls a subtle tan and introduced weathered items like the window frames to get the farmhouse look without a ton of white.

Fantastic Fireplace

The slate stone behind the gorgeous fireplace is another naturally warm surface. The room with the fireplace doesn’t have the stained wood ceiling so it’s not too dark. Of course, adding a huge picture window allows tons of light into the room.

Of course, gorgeous granite is used throughout the kitchen. It’s been the most popular countertop material for over 15 years now.

Lovely Laundry Room in 1997 Fuqua Double Wide Remodel

The laundry room is one of my favorite rooms in Tracy’s home! She has such a great talent at mixing together different textures and colors.

A stone tile backsplash, warm wood trim, and stained wooden countertop set the stage for her unique sink. I love it!

Tracy’s knack for adding natural materials together is offset by an ultra-modern faucet. Adding something modern into a space helps keep it from looking too primitive.

She also added a unique shoe rack:

Stone and wood are natural partners in home decor but adding white and other bright colors into the scenery is a great way to modernize a space.

Favorite DIY Moment

I asked Tracy what her favorite DIY moment was during her remodel:
When we were installing the floor we basically had to go around this huge”island” room in the middle of the house. I was freaking out that we would not meet in the middle. When we got around that and the floor just came together perfectly I almost cried. It was such a relief to have that just come together perfectly.”

Biggest Challenge During the Remodel

When I asked Tracy what her biggest challenge she was honest, “I would have to say the doubters were my biggest challenge. When I told my husband I wanted to remodel the house (again) he told me that he was fine with it but I was doing it on my own.”

She went on to say, “I did it with very minimal help from anyone. My husband helped me with the heavy lifting and some planning aspects but other than that I did it by myself. The people that told me that it couldn’t be done because it was a manufactured home or because I was a woman. Those were my biggest challenges.”

Tracy surely met those doubters and naysayers head-on and proved to them that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.

The grand finale for this 1997 Fuqua double wide remodel is the front porch. It is breathtaking! It adds so much curb appeal!
