The CrossMod category is an innovation in manufactured housing. These homes are designed to provide a new solution for buyers who desire the potential for long-term appreciation and improved exterior and interior features. We anticipate this new class of homes will be offered under $200,000 in most markets plus cost of land, and will match the design of traditional on-site built homes.
Clayton will build CrossMod homes in its world class home building facilities across America to marry the design-forward style of on-site built housing and the smarter, more efficient building processes traditionally associated with off-site construction methods. These homes will be built to the home construction and safety standards (HUD Code) which are administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Clayton Built® homes are constructed off-site in stages using a production line method with an internal inspection at each step during the home construction process. Our internal inspection process, along with required external monitoring, ensures the quality of our homes. The use of technology for material conveyance in facilities creates a faster and more seamless building process, which helps keep home costs lower and relieves an amount of physical stress for our builders. Once a home is completed inside one of our home building facilities, it is transported by truck in sections to the final home location where construction is finished and final touches are completed to ready the home for move-in.
The way we source our building materials also impacts the cost of our homes. We purchase quality materials from trusted brands in bulk and utilize a supply network to build windows, roof trusses and cabinets that are integrated into the home construction process. This model helps us offer new homes in a more attainable price range and improve build speed to a rate that is often more efficient than traditional on-site builders.
