Shopping for a new Clayton Built® home online has never been easier. With our virtual tools, we can help bring the home center experience right to your couch.

If you’re a big fan of shopping online, you’ll be glad to know Clayton is here to help when it comes to your home buying journey. Take a look at these three ways to view our manufactured and modular home models, so you can see features you’re interested and compare your favorite floor plans all from the comfort of your own home.


1. Take a 3D Home Tour

Want to see Clayton’s home models in 360 degrees? Well, once you find a home you’re interested in, our home details pages offer virtual 3D tours where you can navigate from room to room as you control where you want to go and what features you want to see. This is a great way to check out how the living room leads into the kitchen, or visualize just how you’ll use all the space in that primary bathroom. You can have fun touring different homes whenever you want, but you may be wondering, what do you do once you have several floor plans you really like? Well, that’s where a Clayton Favorites account comes in!

2. Get Some Visual Inspiration

With a Clayton Favorites account, you can save your top homes, features and even posts from our blog and share them with family members. You can also use your account when you visit your local home center consultant to help make finding a home with everything you’re looking for a little easier.

Still working on that list of must-haves for your next home? Browsing through images on our Get Inspired page and then adding those to a board on your Favorites account is a great way to start building ideas, from colorful kitchen islands, accent walls, built-in storage, soaker tubs and more! You can also see photos of specific home models and view more 3D tours of manufactured and modular homes that are available near you.

3. Schedule a Tour with a Home Center

Once you’ve viewed Clayton Built® home models online and used our virtual tools, you’ll probably be interested in seeing the floor plans that are available at your local home center. There, you can talk to one of our home consultants to learn more about all of the different options you have.

Some Clayton home center locations may even be able to schedule a virtual visit, where a home consultant can walk you through models that are there at the home center and answer any questions you may have about the process. If you are interested in that option, you can contact your local home center and see if they offer virtual visits, or schedule an in-person appointment if you’re ready.

At Clayton, we know the process of buying a home is based on your specific needs, and it can definitely feel complicated or even overwhelming when you’re just getting started. Our online shopping options help put you in charge, so you can take your time and gather all the info you need about Clayton’s different home features, customization or upgrade options, price ranges and more. You can get started today by browsing home models on our website!
