It's not a new gadget. It's a house full of them -- a project designed by Clayton Homes as an affordable means of living green. Clayton says these manufactured houses are 30 percent more energy-efficient than standard construction.
The i-House comes in two versions: a $74,900, 723-square-foot model and the $93,300, 1,023-square-foot model. Both have these standard features: R-21 wall insulation, R-30 floor insulation, R-30 roof insulation, low-e windows, dual-flush toilets, galvanized metal roofing, corrugated steel siding, butterfly roof with rainwater collection, and no-VOC paints. Add-ons include 2 kW of solar, a tankless water heater, low-flow faucets and Energy Star stackable washer-and-dryer.
