Abstract: Two mobile home designs were created for efficient and spacious solutions for livability in limited spaces. This was achieved by the planning and coordination of space, exterior and interior materials, furnishings, and lighting. Spaces were planned for the anticipated living activities and storage requirements of a typical family in one phase of the family life cycle. Mobile Home I was designed for a typical family with two small children. The exterior had fir siding and vertical windows. The interior included an L-shaped kitchen with dining area, living room, three bedrooms, and one bathroom. Open planning, light colored wall materials, and furnishings of simple design were used. Mobile home II was designed for a beginning family. The exterior had cedar siding, vertical windows, aggregate panels, and an asphalt shingled roof with an overhang. The interior included a U-shaped kitchen, living-dining area, two bedrooms, and one bathroom. Light colored wall materials, windows, and furnishings of simple design enhanced the spaciousness.
