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.
