Worse than we thought

The window wall in the bedroom is worse than we originally thought.

The drywall is off the window wall and looking at the studs it’s in pretty bad shape. We now how to do a complete rebuild of the wall. Previous owners didn’t fix leaks just did patch jobs.

The opening to the window is much bigger than anticipated .The siding also had to be removed so that the work can be done. What was thought to be a couple of days project turned into maybe a week. I’m hoping that it doesn’t take that long but we will see.

The wood that held the wall in place has rotted away do to the rain and neglect. Yes, that is the outside you are looking at and it’s that bad in person. There is A lot of work that needs to be done just to get this bedroom useable. Hubby told me that he thinks that the wall in the bathroom that holds our tub is just as bad.

That will be something we look into at another time. Right our main focus is the bedroom and preventing more leaks. We knew that there was some issues but nothing like this. We are planning on moving within the next year so we just need the mobile home to hold up that long. We are doing what needs to be done for now. To make this place more livable than it was previously.

This is how we are spending our weekend. Fixing years of neglect on a what use to be nice mobile home. To look at our mobile home , you wouldn’t think that it is as bad as it is. One thing I can say is that it smelled like mildew but we didn’t see any mold. That is a good thing.

Hope everyone is a GREAT WEEKEND!

Thanks for stopping by.

Til next time.

  1. Yes, it was. Thankfully we didn’t have to replace the entire wall. Just the bad spot. the frame work is done and the window is in place. We ran out of daylight and the hardware stores still close early here. Tomorrow we have to pick up insulation and paneling. We are also doing the ceiling but that is a post for another day.
