Clayton’s I House Design
The Clayton I House was developed in 2008 to give the public another option in mobile/manufactured/pre-fab home design. This home focuses on ultra-modern design, environmentally friendly products, and a hefty price tag. Which is its only downfall, at over $75,000 it’s entirely too expensive. Instead of trying to please the buyers of standard mobile homes, they tried to entice the green yuppie market. Rich, young professionals don’t want anything to do with mobile homes even if they don’t look like one, which is why I believe it hasn’t sold very well at all.
The Features of the Clayton I House
Clayton’s president asked the architects to design a unit that could be built in the factories they already had and have the least amount of material waste. The designers started with a butterfly roof that was designed for a rainwater catchment system, as well as to carry the optional $8,000 solar PV system. The home has IKEA fixtures, dual-flush toilets, recycled decking materials, and low E efficient windows. It also utilizes the popular Japanese style climate control system in each room.
The home is 992 square feet with the bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom. The home also has an extended room with a bathroom, which also features an awesome rooftop deck.
The interior of the Clayton I House has a very sleek and modern look as well. The kitchen offers ample storage and high-end appliances. The bedrooms have built-in storage as does the living room.
There are so many great ideas you can get by looking at new designs and ideas from mobile home manufacturers. Just use your imagination and don’t let the “I can’t do that” bug get you. You have the basis of a beautiful home, your sitting in it right now and you can make it whatever you want with a little hard work and vision.
