Modular Tiny Home Plan Designed for Style and Comfort
Clayton, one of the largest home builders in America, is unveiling the Saltbox floor plan, the second addition to its Designer Series by Clayton Tiny Homes.
Clayton first introduced the Low Country, the first tiny home floor plan in the Designer Series, in person at the annual 2017 Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders meeting. Designed by renowned architect Jeffrey Dungan, the Saltbox is designed to be a perfect year-round permanent residence, vacation home, guest home, or accessory dwelling unit.
"We continue to push ourselves to design and innovate with our customers' unique lifestyles in mind," Clayton CEO Kevin Clayton said. "The Saltbox is the perfect tiny home for those looking to live simply, but luxuriously.
Built indoors to International Residential Code (IRC) building standards, the Saltbox home is a "tiny" modular home constructed to be permanently affixed to the homeowner's property. The Clayton Built tiny home possesses all the latest in modern home design, both inside and out. Ply Gem French doors; a white Summit Appliance range and refrigerator; and tall 9'5" ceilings in the bedroom provide a roomy living space inside. On the outside, the premium standing seam metal roof, stylish vertical shiplap wood siding with horizontal board and batten are combined to provide a high-quality exterior that is both stylish and built to last.
"We've packed a lot into this well-appointed 452-square-foot home," Jim Greer, Clayton Tiny Homes Brand Manager, said. "But we know that size doesn't matter when it comes to designing smart and luxurious spaces. From the 270-degree views to the quartz countertops, this is the home for comfort and style."
The Saltbox also utilizes several features that allow it to be an efficient home. Energy-efficient Ply Gem aluminum-clad windows and doors, as well as a space-saving tankless water heater, give Saltbox owners ways to minimize utility consumption.
Though the floor plan is compact, homeowners of the Saltbox won't have to sacrifice having friends over or entertaining. The home is designed to fit a dining room table that seats six, and a covered porch with large overhang means homeowners can utilize outdoor living spaces during different weather conditions.
