The I-House looks like a house you'd order from Ikea, sounds like something designed by Apple and consists of amenities-solar panels, tankless water heaters and rainwater collectors-that one would expect to come from a offbeat green company out of California selling to a high-end market. But Clayton Homes, one of the largest manufacturers of mobile homes out of Maryville, Tenn., is looking to enter the market of environmentally friendly, prefab homes with a model that is seriously affordable.

You used to be able to order a house out of the Sears catalog. They would ship everything you needed to build an entire house to you. A lot of the houses are still up today.

Seriously! 1000 sq ft is a perfect size for a couple (and maybe one young kiddo), for $93K?! Granted, land anywhere decent would bump that significantly, but wow.

AND it's a "green house"

i think more people should think about houses like this..plus you can pick them up and move them wherever.

my question would be how easy/hard are they to maintain? how long do they last? seems like something kind of like hybrid cars, nice to have and efficient but a bitch to work on and if anything breaks it costs a ton of money to fix.

if they're mobile homes, you're not gaining any equity as you own it. probably part of the reason it's so cheap
