Clayton homes is holding a showcase of homes this Friday, Saturday & Sunday in Knoxville:
See our earlier post for more details on the company and their previous showcase.
According to their website, the following homes will be on display in Knoxville:
One thing we couldn't tell from their site: which are "modular" (built to local codes) vs. "manufactured" (HUD code).
where: Knoxville, TN
location: Knoxville Convention Center, 701 Henley Street
date: October 31 - November 2, 2008
time: 9:00am - 9:00pm
What to expect:
Clayton CEO Kevin Clayton explains:
Clayton Homes produces both "manufactured" and "modular" housing. These terms have a specific meaning in the industry, part of which is covered on their website:
The industry stopped using the term "mobile home" (and presumably "trailer home") when the HUD code became effective June 15, 1976. Not mentioned: manufactured homes do NOT qualify for a traditional mortgage, in part because the homes tend to lose value every year.
These homes are built to the same standards as conventional "site-built" homes and qualify for a standard mortgage. (In fact they are often somewhat stronger in order to survive transportation and installation by crane.)
At least one home in the Showcase had 2 stories (see above), so it appears that a mix of both types will be shown.
