Sigh. You know my affection for modular green construction. Finding a realistic and affordable modular design is difficult–going green is not inexpensive. Clayton Homes has the “i” series, and, I gotta say, it has appeal.
Currently available are two options: the i-house I and i-house II that can be combined with a “flex” module. The flex module is a separate bedroom/studio/office or whatever your needs are space, with a bathroom–roof deck above. Lots of outdoor space involved here, which is awesome, and highly customizable interior space in both i-house models (clayton homes assures).
When i was poking around “building” my i-house II, the proposed cost with shipping and add-ons, including solar panels, was $168,000 and change. Would the cost likely be more when it is all said and done? Of course. But realistically, and this does not include land or site prep, which is site specific, the home cost should be well under $200,000. If you have any familiarity with modular contemporary construction–that is a pretty good number. Make sure when you click on the link below that you check out the i-house 2.0 video. The 2.0 version is more style-defined and incorporates some changes requested by consumers interested in the i-house concept. Really awesome.
