Stock Transformation: A stock 12’ X 56’ mobile office needed to serve as an upscale real estate sales office selling half a million dollar new homes—which weren’t built yet. The construction trailer was renovated and appointed tastefully so the sales team could help prospective buyers envision ocean-front dream homes where they could only see dirt. The standard white steel exterior siding was re-painted a warmer cream and wood trellises were added to soften the roof line. French doors replaced the standard solid steel front door and a sliding glass door on the opposite exterior wall opened onto a deck with a sweeping ocean view. Interior drywall was installed over the standard birch paneling, residential carpet laid over the standard vinyl composition tile and track lighting highlighted the sales displays. Hawaiian and tropical foliage around the sales trailer added a plantation feel.

Because the trailer was rented, and had to be restored to its original condition at the end of the agreement, , the developers’ architect had to renovate the construction trailer in a way that modifications could be removed. Carpet was tacked on top of the VCT instead of glued; roof trellises were attached without holes made in the roof. The original steel doors were saved so the glass doors could be removed, the walls reframed, and the original doors re-installed.

Renovating a stock mobile office instead of building a permanent structure meant cost savings and time savings. We delivered the mobile office in a day and they were able to occupy it and start sales a month later. When the project has sold out, the mobile office will be removed and a new home built in its place.
