More Manufactured and Modular Homes Under 1,000 Square Feet

According to, a ranch style modular home is usually the least expensive type of modular home to build per square foot. Clayton offers many ranch style manufactured and modular floor plans that can be customized. They tend to be even more affordable the smaller you go in home size.


Before you start browsing through home model options under 1,000 square feet, remember that a modular home isn’t just a home built in cubes and craned together. Technically, a modular home is a prefabricated home built to all applicable building codes and requirements for the home’s final location.

Many of these small prefab homes are built as manufactured homes (which means they’re built to federal regulations known as the HUD Code) or are built as modular homes which are built to meet all applicable state and local building requirements, which are the same requirements for site built homes!
