The Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) and builderonline.com report that Clayton Homes of Maryville, Tennessee is the nation’s largest homebuilder. With over 1.5 million homes built since 1934, and numerous awards for design and construction, Clayton builds manufactured and modular homes, as well as commercial and educational buildings, through 35 facilities around the nation. According to credit.com, nearly 25 percent of Americans between 18 and 24 describe their American dream as being debt free, reports knoxvilledailysun.com. Kevin Clayton, CEO of Clayton Homes, says, “We believe this generation’s attitude shift in consumerism has fueled our company’s growth. We provide hardworking American families with high quality, affordable housing so they can focus on family and the things that matter most in life.” As MHProNews knows, Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway acquired Clayton in 2003 for $1.7 billion.
