Kentucky-i-house

There's been a lot of talk of the i-House ever since Clayton Homes announced its launch in about January of this year.  The home is contemporary, affordable, and energy efficient.  Landowners Bob and Melinda bought a 37-acre swath of land in 2006, hoping to someday build a home on it and live the good country life.  They're 95 miles from Louisville in western Kentucky and had an i-House delivered just about a month ago. 

I was able to get in touch with Bob by email and he tells me they're putting the finishing touches on the green, factory-built home.  He should have final interior and exterior pictures soon.  We'll try to have a Q&A at that time to discuss the whole process from start to finish.  In the mean time, make sure to follow his blog, Life in the Country, for updates.

The i-House comes with a number of standard green 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.  For a price, homeowners can get 2 kW of solar, a tankless water heater, and Energy Star stackable washer and dryer.
