Alongside the recent U.S. government shut-down and continued uncertainty, new homeowners are finding that living within their means may be the new American dream.  According to a recent survey by nearly one in four Americans between the ages of 18-24 defined their American dream as being debt-free. This new trend means that affordable housing is becoming one solution to fulfilling this dream. More Americans have embraced the freedom of financial stability, by realizing it’s possible to own a quality home and have money leftover to spend on yourself. The “McMansions” of the 1990’s are now a dream of the past.

“We believe this generation’s attitude shift in consumerism has fueled our company’s growth.” said Kevin Clayton, CEO of Clayton Homes. “Clayton Homes is now America’s largest home builder because of our unchanging core values. We provide hardworking American families with high quality, affordable housing so they can focus on family and the things that matter in life.”

Skilled craftsmen build Clayton manufactured homes in one of the company’s 35 home building facilities. Every home is subject to a series of inspections to assure the precise construction standards are maintained. The building environment is climate controlled, preventing weather delays and damaged materials, which saves consumers money.
