This is not your grandparents’ mobile home. I know firsthand because my grandparents lived in a mobile home (which they customized themselves) atop a quiet, tree-covered hill in East Tennessee for decades. I loved romping around that house as a child. Clayton Homes’ i-house arguably the most innovative manufactured home to hit the industry is a home that I could see myself romping around in as an adult. The i-house is smart, custom built to the buyer’s specifications and about as green as you can get, especially at this price point, starting at $74,000. And then there’s the design: modern, clean and downright cool. A few highlights:

The master bedroom in this layout is large enough to house a king size bed. IKEA furnishings are optional. Paint is no VOC and in the color of your choice. Plenty of natural light streams in through energy efficient windows and doors.


The kitchen houses Corian countertops, stainless steel appliances, contemporary light fixtures, a fabulous backsplash and substantial, beautiful hardware. Floors throughout are bamboo.


This funk-alicious room is the main seating area of the flex house which is an add-on option to the i-house — a must have in my book. It features a full bath and a rooftop deck and would be ideal for a home office or private guest suite.

To see the exterior of the i-house, revisit my post: Green Living For the Masses? or visit Clayton Homes. And keep reading Design Happens to learn more about the i-house, including when and where you can see a model in person and to hear about Clayton’s future design plans. If you prefer a more traditional home, you’ll want to stay tuned.

    I live in FL, how does this modular house conform to hurricane requirements? I know several people that have to leave their homes during even a lowly tropical storm because it is modular. We are looking at a sweet little piece of property in the Palm Coast area of FL and we love the I-house, but……………
    Thank you

    Guess it's not my taste. Green doesn't mean it has to look cold, stark and lacking in personality.

    Just a question: What does the i mean in i-house? I see it alot and don't know what it means. Thanks, and I like the house. My husband and I like modern & contemporary, with clean lines and minimalism.

    If someone can answer my question, that would be great. Thank you.

  5. Hey. I really like the blog. I submitted it to reddit and digg because i think more people need to read it! Also, I have a blog too if you want to check it out. It's called Zygor Leveling and it teaches World of Warcraft players how to level up to max level in 6 days. If you want you can check it out! Thanks again!

  6. I really like getting the letters, but please will not go telling folks they are heading to have about 1 a week. We have been lucky to receive an individual a month. You need to do a little better than that….or quit the pinocchio stories at the really least. If 1 a month is what it is, then that’s what it is.
