Turning Mobile Homes Into Modern Beauties.

Have a spare trailer sitting in your backyard collecting dust and bugs? Want to turn it into that modern abode you always wanted but could not afford? Then you might want to check out the TrailerWrap Project at the University of Colorado at Denver. Their goal is to develop a series of parts in a kit that is easily installed by a group of people on an existing mobile home. The kit would wrap the old frame in stuccoed walls, install oak floors and raise the roof to 9 and 12 feet. Not a bad idea, really, if they can make it affordable and half way decent looking. This model looks pretty good, and the sustainability factor would be pretty high as trailers would not just be left to die like they normally are. Trailer parks could take on new meanings as places of great design!
