The Tempo product line is designed to be a big hit that is accessible and available to everyone in the delivery region.

It all started with a family and a dream.

In 1956, the Clayton family began its journey when founder Jim Clayton sold his first home and launched the dream of making homeownership attainable for everyone across America. We’ve come a long way over the last 60 years. Our CEO since 1999, Kevin Clayton joined his father’s family business at the age of 7. After graduating from college and earning his MBA from the University of Tennessee, Kevin gained valuable experience at several other highly successful companies before returning to Clayton, where he has promoted a servant leadership style to guide various company initiatives over the years. Kevin has continued his family’s commitment to providing quality, attainable housing, while constantly improving the experience for both Clayton team members and customers. Clayton is now one of the nation’s leading homebuilders in site-built and off-site built homes.

What began as just one location has grown to over 350 home centers offering a variety of housing options to fit families’ needs. Clayton now builds and sells traditional site-built homes and off-site built homes – including manufactured homes, modular homes, CrossMod™ homes, Designer Cottages and PMRVs.

Built on a strong foundation, to last a lifetime or two.

Our advanced construction process has been carefully engineered to give you a strong, beautiful home from the foundation to the roof, and everything in between. When it comes to getting the job done right, there are no shortcuts. Over the last 60 years, we’ve done more than build homes. We’ve transformed how they’re built in the first place, from our innovative off-site building process to the quality construction materials we use.

The Clayton Built® Standard

When you buy a Clayton Built® home, you can trust it’s constructed on a foundation of strength, quality and durability that has truly been built to last.

Every Clayton Built® home goes through a series of rigorous checkpoints and internal inspections that test electrical outlets, exterior quality, plumbing lines, interior details and more, so you know you can rely on each part of your home, from the inside out.

Our manufactured homes are built to federal HUD code requirements and our modular homes are built to state and local building requirements. This includes specific construction and design elements depending on the wind and thermal zone where the home will be located.
