Melodie's Little Farmhouse - Living Room

Melodie's Little Farmhouse

Living Room

When Melodie & Steve first began praying about getting debt free they felt they would need to sell their site built home first.  They really sensed God's leading when their home sold within two days and above their asking price.  It was the confirmation that they were heading in the right direction.

This home was originally in a Mobile Home Community, and that's where they began their remodel, however, within months, they realized they wanted their own piece of land in the country.  Once again, things seemed to fall into place and this country site has been their home for the past two years.  

This Lifestyle Suits Them Well 

Melodie says she's always loved "Farmhouse Style" ... actually, she has always loved
old houses.  She's especially drawn to the ones that need a lot of TLC; the uglier the better.  
Steve ... not so much.

With a lot of creativity and hard work, they've achieved the
"Farmhouse Style" that she loves without the major renovation of an old house.

She's Happy  He's Happy

This cozy corner of their Living Room features a new fireplace.
Melodie & Steve did the stone base and wall and 
let the professionals take it from there.

It's so inviting & I'd imagine Melodie's cozy chair 
is a favorite spot on cool days.

On cold or hot days, Melodie said they often opt to
close off half of their house with the glass doors, 
(The Dining Room, Guest Bedroom, Office/Sewing Room)
allowing them to keep the main part of their home nice and cozy.

This living space is simple and timeless ... 
just like everything else in their home.

Why do they LOVE country life...
who wouldn't love this little corner of the world?

  1. No limited imagination here! It's bold and simple. She painted her floors, just like you with your porch. It really is a beautiful home!

    1. There seem to be no limits on their imagination ... so inspiring! Thank you for your comment Marietta! xo

  2. Beautiful, beautiful and you would never begin to imagine it is a mobile home. Headed over to see the part I missed earlier. xo Diana

    1. I know! They've done a beautiful job transforming their home. So happy you stopped by to see it, Diana. xo

  3. I'm loving these posts of Melodie's house. Thanks to you and her. :)

    1. Cassie, I'm so happy you're enjoying it. Melodie is an inspiration to us all. xo

  4. I am just catching up on this amazing renovation. This doesn't even look like a mobile home. What a spectacular job they done creating a farmhouse feel. Kudos to them on being debt free too!

  5. This is such a lovely remodel...I had to go back and see all of the previous posts...really beautiful! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for your kind comment! Following on Bloglovin now...

  6. Such a charming home & I applaud creative solutions for getting out of debt! Blessings, Cecilia

  7. Love your white floors!!! When you say it is plywood cut to size did you cut it like old wood floors would be like and what thickness did you use and what underlayment. One more question what did you do so that the floor did not turn up?

    1. Thank you for your comment ... I love their floors too. Melodie said they used a pretty thick plywood ... she thought 15/32.
      It is cut into large planks and they didn't do anything special with the corners. They did apply liquid nail randomly to each board before nailing it down. It's been two years since they put their floors down ... she said it creeks in a couple of places but they don't mind. Hopefully, this helps you. xo

  8. It's all so lovely! Thank you for sharing. You are one of the features at the Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Here is the link to this week's party. Have a lovely week ahead! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  9. I just happened to stumble across this and I am so happy I did! I live in a mobile home as well, and trying to find DIY's or inspiration articles for mobile homes seemed almost impossible. It is so nice to know there is hope for we mobile home dwellers to have stylish homes, just like a foundation house! Now, how about some YouTube DIY videos??

  10. I'm late to these posts however they speak to my heart. Not only because they're simply beautiful but because you all speak of your faith in God and working in His time. My husband and I are praying on buying a mobile home as a fixer upper and while it is a daunting task I have faith that Christ will lead the way. Both remodels (Yours and Melodie's) give me such hope and inspiration. Thank you for sharing Ms.Geneva and keep us in your prayers and we will do the same for you.
