It appears that the industry giant has formed a new partnership.

For tiny homes.

According to the Times Free Press, Clayton Homes is teaming up with Mountain Brook, Alabama-based Jeffrey Dungan Architects for “The Low Country,” a line of tiny homes with a unique spin.

When we started working on these tiny houses we began by thinking of living a more edited life and in simple ways and times,” said Dungan.

As that line of thinking led to making architectural choices, we also found that simple lines were the most powerful and elegant. We looked at forms of simple outdoor structures and found tents and teepees and sheds. We found materials that were natural seemed to fit in best with what we were creating, and indeed in the environments that these structures might populate.

And out of that exploration came the Low Country design, which is currently featured in the Alabama Center for Architecture’s new exhibit, “Living Space: Tiny House Project.

Coming in at 393 square feet, the design incorporates high end features and finishes, including oak flooring, aluminum-clad windows and cedar shake shingles. The homes can sleep eight.

The homes are being made-to-order in our Addison facility. The approximately $120,000 homes take six-to-eight weeks to construct, said Clayton Homes representative Michael Burleson.

The home that’s now on exhibit is sold and will be shipped soon.

The Living Space exhibit features tiny spaces from across the globe, and was originally curated by Seattle based architect Garrett Reynolds.

It showcases unique and innovative micro-living spaces from New York City, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Seoul and Tokyo.
