Remodeling a manufactured home kitchen to add a walk-in pantry with a sliding barn door.
Our manufactured home has been in a remodel process since the day that we purchased it. We knew it needed a lot of work and along the way that we would need to give this place some character. The before photos show what we started with and I am anxious to show the after. The newest improvement is a walk in pantry with a sliding barn door. The home had a small pantry to begin with but it was in an odd location and not nearly big enough for what our family needed.
Adding a Walk-In Pantry to a Manufactured Home
To put in the new walk in pantry all the cabinetry on the far wall was removed. The refrigerator in the photo was gone before we ever moved in and our new fridge was moved to the wall where the old pantry was located. The removal of the cabinets was an easy process and so my son and I tackled that project before the new walls began going up.
Maximizing Space in a Manufactured Home
After tearing out the cabinets and the sheet rock on the back wall this was the view from our living room. The new pantry wall will span a length of 9 feet going across this entire wall and meeting up next to our laundry room door. The original space had cabinets but they didn’t provide enough storage for what I wanted and the counter tops were rather useless in the location that it was in. The counters were away from the food prep area and we rarely ever used them. Creating the walk-in pantry will help maximize the space in our manufactured home.
In the above image you can see that the wall framing has been done. I have teamed up with Rustica Hardware and one of their amazing sliding barn doors will be going where you see the framed area for a door. The area that you can see behind the wall is our laundry room area
The next step was the process of building the barn door and getting it hung.
One of the things that I loved about Rustica Hardware was the personal customer service when it came to ordering the door. They answered all my questions and were so helpful in the process of making choices. I can assure you that they have a style you will love!
They have many options for door styles, colors, and hanger choices.
Everything came so well packaged and included detailed instructions with photos.
