You Won't Believe This Incredible House Used to Be a Mobile Home

This remodel is truly amazing.

Some house renovations may be quick to put a smile on your face or impress you — this is not one of them. This trailer-home-turned-sanctuary will truly make your jaw drop. 

Amy Shock, 56, a Los Angeles designer and architect transformed an 800-square-foot 1964 mobile home she purchased for $5,200 into a spacious and breathtaking residence in California's Ojai Valley, the Los Angeles Times reports. 




Amy wanted to downsize from her four-bedroom house and build a more affordable place. She accomplished that goal over the course of 12 months and spent $180,000 (including the price of the trailer). 

Excluding two windows and a door from the original home, Amy got rid of everything and added brand new electrical, plumbing, cabinetry, and lighting. She also added a versatile 500-square-foot space that's currently being used as her painting studio, and a large L-shaped porch for dining and entertaining. 

The most significant (and expensive) add-on was the floor-to-ceiling glass windows. These special-ordered, UV-protective solar glass panels cost $40,000. Although pricey, they give the home an abundance of natural light and provide an airy quality throughout. 

"The idea that I could purchase the opportunity for $5,000 was mind-numbing to me," she told "I had to ask a few friends if it was a stupid idea. They said, 'No! This is your specialty to resuscitate.'"
