Our Construction

Southern Estates puts emphasis on the structure of each home. Our homes are wrapped in OSB with a strong sub-floor system that comes with 2×6 or 2×8 floor joists and ¾ decking under your flooring. All homes have a 16” on center exterior wall on 2×4 studs with the option to upgrade to 2×6. We are an Energy Star certified company which gives the home owner the ability to save hundreds on energy bills each year.

When purchasing a home from Southern Estates, you take advantage of the ability of our team of craftsmen to build your home in a controlled environment which prevents delays in the building process. Compared to site built homes, weather and other variables don’t slow down the process of getting into your new home.

Southern Estates is an ISO 14001 company, which puts emphasis on the minimization of waste that in turn helps our planet. We believe in making our houses and our production process as green and efficient as possible.

We make it a point at SEhomes of Addison to build the home of your dreams and truly deliver HAPPYness to your family for years to come!


Southern Estates was started in 1982 and was known as Southern Lifestyle. In September of 2003, Southern Lifestyle became Southern Estates. In the first month of that change, 6 single-section units and 46 multi-section units were built.

In October of 2006, Clayton Homes acquired SE Homes, which included Estates. This gave Clayton Homes a great range of product in a strategic distribution location, while it provided Estates with the sturdy structure and availability of resources from a large corporation.

Since then, Estates has found a niche market and has built and distributed an average of 1,162 floors per year.
