April 9, 2024

DAVIESS COUNTY, Ky., April 9, 2024Clayton, a leading national builder of single-family attainable housing, broke ground on a new neighborhood of 31 eBuilt® homes in Daviess County, KY, on April 9. The new neighborhood, called Greenbriar, is expected to increase availability of affordable homes. Several public officials were present for the groundbreaking, including Representative DJ Johnson, Judge Executive Charlie Castlen, County Commissioner Janie Marksberry and Chamber Member Ken Crandall.

“We are excited to see this new development advance attainable, sustainable homeownership opportunities in the city of Owensboro,” said Jerry Tackett, Clayton Homes Regional Vice President. “These new homes will help increase housing inventory in the community while seamlessly blending into an existing neighborhood.”

The neighborhood will feature modern manufactured homes from Clayton’s Epic floor plans, on permanent foundations with a detached garage option. All homes in the new neighborhood will be eBuilt®, meaning they are built to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Zero Energy Ready Home™ specifications. eBuilt homes come with 25 energy-efficient enhancements and are estimated to save homeowners up to 50% on annual energy costs1, helping provide homeowners with a low cost of ownership over the lifetime of their home.

The new homes represent an innovative solution to sustainable, attainable homeownership. Modern manufactured homes offer lower production costs due to the efficiency of the home building process, leading to a more affordable home for buyers.

Clayton Homes of Owensboro and Evansville, two local Home Centers, are leading the Greenbriar development. The homes will be integrated into an existing 55-year old subdivision and will include move-in ready home models as well as customizable floor plans. New homes will start at $199,900. Homes will become available beginning in Spring 2024.
