Clayton Homes has completed one of its super-green modular homes, called the "i-house," in Evans, Colo., just south of Greeley.

Based in Maryville, Tenn., Clayton builds and sells manufactured/modular homes, and is owned by business mogul Warren Buffett's Berkshire-Hathaway Inc.

 

The homebuilder calls the i-house "one of the first big steps in making green housing universally available."

 

The home's sustainable features include bamboo floors, tankless hot-water system, energy-efficient windows, low-flow water faucets, high-efficiency appliances plus zero- or low-emission paint and insulation.

 

Roofs include solar panels for power generation, as well as a cistern for collecting rainwater for uses such as irrigating the yard and washing the car.

 

The Evans i-house is located at 3455 W. Service Road.

 

Clayton Homes unveiled the i-house in 2009. The home comes in two basic versions -- a one-bedroom, one-bath, 723-square foot unit with a base price of $74,900, and a two-bedroom, one-bath, 1,023-square-foot version with a base price of $93,300.

 

The company has completed other i-houses in markets such as Knoxville, Tenn.; Seattle; Sacramento, Calif.; and Austin, Texas.
