Woman Transforms $800 Mobile Home Into Something of Class!

Categories: Homes / Dwellings

Looking to downsize from her four-bedroom home in Beverly Hills, designer Amy Shock longed for a coastal live-work retreat.

She wanted to replicate the walls of glass and other Midcentury aspects in the Trousdale neighborhood but on a smaller, more manageable scale.

After looking at nearly 100 listings spanning Ventura to Newport Beach, Shock stumbled upon a metal double-wide 1964 mobile home in Ojai and tricked it out.

She transformed the low-end building by adding high-end features. The results? 

You've never seen a mobile home like this.
