Under current county regulations shipping container homes require a building permit unless they are less than 120 square feet and are used as accessory storage buildings without any associated plumbing, electrical, or mechanical permits. Containers of 320 square feet or less are exempt from permit and plan check fees under the county’s Homeowners Relief Act, and the container must meet all zoning requirements for use, size, and setbacks. A container on residentially zoned property must have stucco or frame siding materials and appropriate roofing materials attached to the outside so that it appears to be a normal frame or stucco storage building; siding and roofing materials are not required if it will be placed in non-residential neighborhood.
Another factor that will help the modifications to be made is the house`s final blueprint. When it comes to modifications there are a lot of ides you could think of. These include going for installing solar panels or you may prefer soy-based insulation or better yet choose eco-friendly amenities. Or perhaps yet you may find it attractive to remove some panels so you can have floor-to-ceiling windows. There are so many ideas on how you can modify your place but the lesser the modifications to do the easier the whole construction will be plus you won`t worry about going over your allotted construction budget.
Obviously there are some similarities with a standard home build – typically you’ll require foundations to be laid – you’ll need services for plumbing and electricity. There maybe local building regulations that you’ll have to comply with and as is the case with most of us your new home will need financing.
Believe it or not, it is actually cheaper to produce a new shipping container than transport one back. So the question is: Shipping containers are definitely a renewable resource.
Shipping containers offer a modular and durable set of building blocks of which to develop your home from. They can be bought either new or used at relatively low cost.
Using only a tiny percentage of the typical materials to build most standard homes, costs and labor to actually create one of these is astounding compared to constant price increases of your average house today.
