Duck Dynasty's Uncle Si says factory-built homes are a good call (video)
Factory-built modular homes offer some green building advantages that make them a smart choice for homebuyers.
That's why Uncle Si Robertson from TV's Duck Dynasty paired with Clayton Homes to unveil the limited edition "Si Pad," an affordable, quality home designed with the active outdoorsman in mind.
This charming, country-chic home is available in five unique floor plans with available features like:
- Camouflage wall panels
- "Si's Security Locker" designed as a gun closet
- Wooden ceiling beams
- Rustic wood trim throughout the home
- Wood grain linoleum flooring
- Entertainment center
- Wall chalkboard
- "Si's Stash" safe
- Farmhouse sink with gooseneck faucet
Watch Si discuss the low waste that comes from factory building.
The environment is completely controlled, with no weather delays, no lost time and no damaged or stolen materials.
Si praised Clayton Homes for their customer service, and for being built in America. "I've got a Clayton Home. Trust me, I'm gonna out-relax everybody in a 100 mile radius," quipped Si Robertson.
Clayton Homes offers Energy Star certified upgrades on many of its models. Depending on climate zone, those upgrades include additional insulation, sealed ducts, energy-efficient heating and cooling, windows with low-E glass, CFL bulbs and other measures. Energy Star homes must meet strict guidelines for efficiency set by the EPA and are typically 20 percent to 30 percent more efficient than standard homes.
