Not that you all care but it's time for me to paint. I slapped some paint on 3 years ago when they installed my house. This was a floor display modular and has several mobile home characteristics. Some of the rooms have the strips going down the walls. Most are regular drywall. I'll be changing a few fixtures and such along the way. Maybe you all can get some I ideas maybe not. Either way this thread gives me the ability to talk to someone outside of the family. I'll be starting with my second bathroom that is open to any visitors. I still haven't decided on colors but I've got enough prep to keep me busy for a little while.uploadfromtaptalk1389481169412.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1389481181603.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1389481194257.jpg

The only thing I ever really disliked about a mobile home, or the modulars is the strips running down the walls between sections of the boards.  I am honestly impressed with the quality of work these homes display now.  They are built just as good as most new stick built homes

 

When I was looking at them they told me they could easily install drywall in the entire place for an extra few thousand, it would just take longer to setup because of the extra work.

Tv room, master, dining room, and halls don't have the strips. At least the stripped rooms are regular thickness drywall

Oh fun, picking out colors. I remember my wife keeping what seemed like 100 color samples to decide from. I enjoyed the prepping and painting. Just the picking the colors got a bit frustrating.

I would never paint those semi-glossy panels and leave white myself. Doubt there is drwall underneath or is that 1/4" stuff you can't work with. Put the color in the shower curtain, curtains, accerssories, save the effort. The floors probly even go under all the walls and you need to just lay new over the existing or cut it our along walls. Might try some of those wooden plank floors that snap together to do those, BUT, they don't really reccommend using in Kits and Baths with water spill chances. Not sure you could get right paint to go over the plastics and that board and look right w/out streaking and marks that will never go away. I really think it will cheapen up the look of whole place.  Probly not what you wanted to hear from someone, but have messed with MHomes myself and it gets hard to work on them and come out right. One bath I did, I gutted whole thing, even the wallboards and put up some wallpaper looking wall board on part of wall or just one wall for color and design. Everything in M-home has it's own dimensions and doesn't seem to match building materials like used in reg homes, makes it hard to work with.

I can't stand white. It's regular drywall. It's not the vinyl coated stuff your thinking of. Everything in this house is standard building supply except for the back door and electrical boxes in the walls.

Well, there is your whole problem   :poke:  :poke:  :rolling:  :rolling:

 

I can't help ya on colors, wife brings me the paint, I put it on.

 

If you are looking for flooring for the bathroom, there is a newer vinyl laminate type out used in water areas. It's just like click it lamintate, but all panels are vinyl. Can look plastic-ee but some look like regular vinyl flooring.

For flooring I'll be using 3/4" oak everywhere except for the bathrooms. They will be getting tile. Flooring won't happen till next year at the earliest.

The way I understand it was one of their first modulers and one of the last to come from there.

I must say I feel lucky...I got the mirror off without breaking it. Wow I'm good.

You are removing the straps to and taping the joints. That looks good!
