The right side of my original photos are blurry....why you say? The day I took them I was so tired from working that I thought my eyes were tired and not focusing. In reality it was a finger smudge on the lens of the camera. Got a kick our of myself when I realized what had happened.
August is not a good time of year to begin remodeling a mobile home. Especially one that has 2 barely working air conditioners, both scarcely hanging from the windows in which they were placed. The weather was in the 100's and my little tuna can reeked of leftover odors from cigarettes and a dog...not a good picture.
My role model for this endeavor... MY AUNT MARY, who encouraged me all along the way by listening and laughing with me. She was a fixer-upper and remodeler...and I would follow in her footsteps!?!

The living room - kitchen
The previous owners had left behind alot of furniture and miscellaneous items. holes in the walls...and MICE!!!
The old front door was actually an interior door in which a window had been fitted and a human sized doggy door had been placed. The first night of sleeping there, I piled everything big and heavy I could find, in front of it.
THE LIVING ROOM AND KITCHEN FLOOR...Lumber Liquidators, maple laminate...$.78 cents a square foot. I had never laid laminate......strained nerves, sweat, tapping with blocks, no square walls...did I mention the cussing? ... it looked so easy on DIY!!!
