The Yesterday by Clayton Homes

Manufactured Housing is trending! It is amazing that there is such an affordable housing shortage, but people are slowly understanding the value this type of housing offers.

Here are a few Lifestyled homes that we have staged in the last few months - let us know what you think!

We are Trending! Manufactured Housing Gets the Respect It Deserves


Mobile Homes. Trailers. Trailer Parks. Call them what you want, but as an industry, people are beginning to realize that our homes could be the solution for the affordable housing crisis. Our homes are beautiful, well designed, eco-friendly and yes, affordable. 


As an industry, we are very fortunate to have national groups like The Manufactured Housing Institute, and state organizations like The Texas Manufactured Housing Association that are advocates for the industry. We are so used to going to their conferences every year, 2020 felt like I missed a year in school, and I can't wait to get back to the education and conferences these groups offer.


With the huge labor and material shortages that we are experiencing, manufacturers are literally out of homes, but it looks like there are more homes finally becoming available. If you are thinking about buying a manufactured home, start your process early to make sure that your dream home will be ready when you are.


Memory Lane: The Tunica Shows

Was going through old posts and found this one:

I've seen Elvis and he was in Tunica, Mississippi this week at the South Central Manufactured Housing Show. Not only was his nearby home Graceland designated a Historical site that week but he was there in the flesh to welcome people to the show.

I was chosen to do the interiors for 5 homes built by Patriot Homes of Alabama for the Manufactured Housing Show and I had a blast! The weather held out and for the first time that I can remember we had no rain.

With all of the news coverage about the Rebuilding of the Gulf Coast, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with a team consisting of Architect John Carricarte, Marketing Guru Sam Weidner and the Patriot Homes group. They were able to showcase homes that were ideal to fit into existing neighborhoods that were ravaged by Hurricane Katrina as well as homes that would fit into many neighborhoods in that region.

Such fun times!

How Manufactured Housing Stepped Up During Hurricane Katrina

Katrina Cottages 6
It's hard to believe that's it's been 10 years since Katrina set her eye on New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. So much of the media was focused on New Orleans, but the entire Gulf Coast especially in Mississippi has yet to fully recover from her wrath.
When it became obvious that here was going to be extensive loss of housing , the Manufactured Housing Institute and the manufactured housing community sprung into action to make sue that people would have a place to live that was safe.
A few years after the storm MHI's magazine: Modern Homes had an article written by Lifestylist® Suzanne Felber with photography by Lisa Stewart Photography that shared what progress had been made, and what an important part of the rebuilding process manufactured housing played.
