How It Works
Currently, this digital home buying tool is available in South Carolina, Georgia and Florida for the 10 home models in Clayton’s Epic series. The tool is user-friendly and allows you to design your perfect home with a few simple clicks.
To get started, head to the Epic website, click Design Your Home, choose the size home you’re looking for and click next.
Next, choose the number of bedrooms you want and click next.
Then, choose the features you want and click next. You will see a list of home models that fit your criteria. You can click each model and then click the arrows to see the floor plan and more photos. Once you’ve chosen the home model you want, select it and click Start Customizing.
You can then choose the exterior siding color and style, shower type (tub or standing) and additional upgrades like the type of flooring and ceiling fan bracing. Once you’re happy with your selections, click View Summary.
On the summary page, you will see an estimated price, if you live in the current service area, and you can fill out a form to receive an email with your saved design. You will also have the option to work with one of our product specialists by selecting “Collaborate with a home expert on my design.”
A Clayton product specialist works alongside your local home center representative to make sure you’re supported throughout your home buying journey. Once you design your home on the Home Designer website, you may choose to directly work with a product specialist.
The home buying process is complex, so a product specialist will be there to guide you every step of the way while also allowing you to set your own pace. If you’re ready to move in ASAP, a product specialist will help you pick out your preferences so they can connect you with a retailer who will support you when you’re choosing any custom features for your home.
Even if you aren’t ready to commit to buying a home quite yet, your product specialist will be there to answer questions you may have and give you the support and information you need until you’re ready.
