Hope I didn't make a mistake
I've lived in a stick house for the past 26 1/2 years, and just sold it today. It was built in 1900; a pretty solid Victorian. Tomorrow I buy a 1985 double-wide mobile home in a leased-land 55+ park.
The DW needs about 25K of work to make it right -mostly cosmetic because it's never been updated. EVERYTHING needs updating. All the walls (if you can call them walls) are covered in that cheap ugly panelling and vinyl wallpaper. And all of the doors are dark brown. We intend to paint all the doors and woodwork semi-gloss white, and all the walls a pastel blue-green. And paint the kitchen cabinets in 2 colors to give them life. We'll refine the colors once we live in it. Then replace the carpets with vinyl and/or indoor-outdoor. Etc.
However... now the paranoia sets in. Did I make a mistake? Will these renovation plans be overwhelming? Will it blow away in a New England hurricane? Yes, we haven't had a big one in 50 years. O, well, maybe I'm just ranting.
