Video of the Month- Watch a Mobile Home Demolition!

Check out this month’s Video of the Month. I love how this video shows everything in the guts of the mobile home. It’s nice to get an in depth view, especially into an older home because so many people are buying them for little money and turning them into such terrific spaces. Enjoy!

This month we watch a mobile home demolition…top to bottom. This is really pretty fascinating!

    This is the best information I have found on the interior “guts” of a mobile home. I want to remove a wall across end of kitchen separating the dining room. Its at a diagonial with openings on both sides.

  2. And all by hand. Wow. I have to say I've never had any real experience with demoing a mobile home. Not that at anyway. Having them take away yes but breaking them down like that.

    Very interesting to watch. Thanks for sharing!

  3. This is the best information I have found on the interior "guts" of a mobile home. I want to remove a wall across end of kitchen separating the dining room. Its at a diagonial with openings on both sides. Trying to find information on bearing walls in mobile home. And how to detect. Thank you for this website.

    • Thanks for the visit, Gloria! Some walls that might seem like they are not load bearing end up being so. In older mobile homes, they often have a beam at the end of those walls dividing the kitchen/dining area that looks like a wide pillar. Some have said that their contractors have told them the pillar is load bearing. Others have said they are not. Check out this great blog post by Crystal at MobilehomeLiving.org for more info about walls in mobile homes. http://mobilehomeliving.org/removing-walls-in-a-m

      Good luck with your projects!

  4. That took a long time. I wonder if he was salvaging material?

    • I think I read in the comment section under the video his description of how he recycles the materials.

    • Julie,
      As the maker of the movie I can say that all recyclable metal maters were recycled. As far as any other materials, the house had a tree fall on it with a lot of water damage so not much was salvageable. The process only took three days.
