Last weekend Clayton Homes launched their much awaited line of modular homes, known as the i-house. ‘Clayton homes’ is the largest manufacturer of modular homes in the United States of America. The launched was announced at the annual shareholder’s meeting. According to Popular Mechanics, the i-house “looks like a house you’d order from IKEA, sounds like something designed by Apple and consists of amenities–solar panels, tankless water heaters and rainwater collectors–that one would expect to come from an offbeat green company out of California selling to a high-end market.”

The i-house line comes in two categories. One of them is known as i-house I. this house will occupy an area of 723-square-foot and will cost the buyer around $74,900. The other will be known as i-house II. This range will occupy an area of 1,023-square-foot and is priced at $93,300. The best part about these homes is that the user can configure these houses in at least seven different ways. Moreover, the i-homes have other attractive features like corrugated steel siding, galvanized metal roofing, non-VOC paints and a butterfly roof with rainwater collection.

It must be mentioned that Clayton Homes has claimed that the i-house is at least 30% more energy efficient than the traditional homes. The factor that will attract the consumers most is the low price of these energy efficient homes. According to experts, the modular houses will attract buyers who are looking for “cheap and energy-efficient vacation homes.”
