As the housing shortage in the United States persists, home builders like Clayton Properties Group—No. 8 on the 2023 Builder 100—are identifying innovative solutions to help families achieve homeownership.

The national builder of single-family attainable housing recently partnered with Georgia Manufactured Housing Association and Iron Horse Communities to unveil a new urban infill project in Atlanta showcasing two of its CrossMod homes.

According to the builder, “CrossMod homes combine off-site construction with site-built features, making them indistinguishable from a traditional site-built home. These homes are uniquely positioned to help increase housing inventory while tackling restrictive urban zoning policies that have limited the acceptance of off-site built housing in the past.”

To learn more about the housing type and the builder’s plans for it, BUILDER spoke with Ramsey Cohen, Clayton’s director of industry and community affairs.
