Get your nose out of the air….


I just have a slight rant.
You see, my home is a double wide. I’m paying a mortgage on it so it won’t exactly be “mine” for awhile yet, however it’s more “mine” than anything I ever rented. It’s a little over 2000 sq ft with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths. It’s not extravagant, but it’s mine. If I had wanted a house this size, I would have had to pay a LOT more for it. It’s nice, sturdy and I can paint, and add whatever I want without having to ask a landlord first. But still, there are many people who still turn their nose up at double wides and act as if they are too good to step foot in one. People just can’t seem to wrap their minds about living in one, let alone actually *gasp* buying one. We bought the doublewide because we were tired of renting substandard places that were really too small for us. The rent in this area is extremely high, even for mobile homes. We decided if we were going to pay that much to rent a place, we might as well just buy our own. I don’t understand why some people who own or rent houses have such a snooty attitude towards mobile homes. They are made better than what they used to be. Ours is zoned for high winds. And during storms or high winds, our place doesn’t even budge. We have a shingled roof so just about the only time I know it’s raining is if I hear the thunder.
So stop judging people who live in mobile homes. Most of us are not “trailer trash”. I know I’m certainly not. If you can afford a house, good for you. However, that doesn’t mean you’re better than me.

This is my home. I am just as proud of it as I would be a huge 2 or 3 story home. So think about that before you judge people just because they have a mobile home.

(Ignore the pool under the porch, my hubby has been too afraid to get it out from under there because he’s convinced there’s a snake there. Which actually, there probably is LOL. Oh and my grass needs to be cut…again. It was just cut maybe a week and a half ago.)

  1. I love this! I have never lived in a doublewide and don’t have any nose-in-the-air feelings about it. However, as I’m COMPLETELY STUPIDLY PARANOID, I couldn’t live in one because of storms. I have anxiety on another level. I get sick when I see black clouds.

  2. We have a double wide too. Ours is about 2000 sq feet, but we have 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms… Which is nice because all the kids have their own rooms. 🙂 …The only thing I would change, is that I wish they had put double paned windows in the house. Grrrrr!

    1. Ours is around 2000 sq feet also and it has 4 bedrooms. It had a huge living room so we just split it off into living room/dining room. We turned the original dining room into a game room for the kids. (It was actually a 5th bedroom in one version of the plans)
