Interesting in prefab housing? Check out the i-house.
The i-house is the modern prefab design from Warren Buffet's Clayton Homes, the world's largest mobile home builder. It was launched in early 2009, not an auspicious time in the American real estate market. But it was the first attempt at really changing and upgrading the mobile and modular market at a mass scale, and they have plugged away at it, and have built models across the country. It is not, as I indicated in my first thoughts on the i-home , a park model built to HUD code, (something that we still need in green); it is a modular home that can go on conventional foundations. But it can't go everywhere; most developments have minimum floor area restrictions and other covenants that would keep it out.
