Tarps can also be used to cover such equipment when not in use, or any equipment that shouldn't get wet if it has to stay outside, which sometimes becomes the case when indoor storage is simply not available.

  • Decorating Ideas For Mobile Homes  By : Andy J Williams
    Decorating decisions for a mobile home are not that much different than for a standard home. Although mobile homes come with many "built-in" features, most people find these are easy to modify or even remove and replace. One of the challenges people who purchase older mobile homes face is dealing with the wood panel style walls. Some folks simply paint the panels a lighter color, while others wish to get rid of the paneled look altogether. However, removing the panel-textured surface is time consuming and difficult for a do-it-yourselfer. Many people have been delighted with the results of either covering the paneling with wallpaper or painting it. In either case, you need to be sure to prepare the surface properly. You'll need to fill in the grooves between the panels with putty or caulking, and make sure that you use the proper primer before painting or papering. Whichever you choose, giving the walls of your mobile home a new look yields a dramatic result in its overall look.
