Container Home FAQs:

What are container homes used for?

Our container homes can be used for a range of purposes, including garden suites, off-grid cabins, retirement living, investment opportunities, short-term accommodation, in-law suites, isolation units, staff accommodation and office space, to name just a few.

Container homes are engineered for year-round living in a variety of climates.

What kind of foundation is required?

Depending on your site requirements and budget, the most common foundation types are either concrete slab on grade or screw pile piers.

What are the site servicing requirements for a container home?

Container homes can either be adapted for off-grid, or they can be connected to municipal services. Site servicing requirements (e.g. electrical, plumbing, wastewater, etc.) are similar to those for a standard build. Municipal requirements vary by site and are determined as part of the feasibility assessment.

How long does it take to get a container home built and installed?

Typically, 14 weeks is our production, site servicing and installation timeframe. In addition to this, depending on the level of service required, you will need to add permit timeframes.

Permits: Timeframes to obtain permits is one of the few items that are hard to estimate. As all municipalities are different and experience fluctuating processing times, we typically confirm this item at the preliminary assessment stage of the process.

Production: Our production goal is to produce your container home in 12-14 weeks. Exact timeline for container delivery will depend on permit approvals and site servicing.

Site servicing: Typically site servicing takes approximately 1-2 weeks.

Installation: Basic installation, finishing and site clean-up take anywhere from 1-3 days depending on the location and access to your site.

Does the container home come with appliances?

The “Clovelly” base price includes a built-in oven, cooktop and range hood fan. An add-on appliance package is available which includes an apartment-sized fridge, dishwasher and washer/dryer unit. This package would arrive seperately post container installation.

Can I customize the design of the container home?

The overall size and layout of the 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom “Clovelly” model is not customizable at this time. However, there are alot of customizeable interior finishes within the existing layout.

Add-ons and upgrades are also available during the design phase. Additional items such as custom light fixtures, window coverings, built-in storage, shelving, custom/built in bed unit, plumbing fixtures are all discussed and determined prior to contract sign off.

Do I need a permit for a container home?
Generally yes. Permits and other regulatory requirements vary by jurisdiction. Legal container homes are considered permanent structures and as such are placed on a concrete foundation.

Alternatively, there are circumstances that may NOT require permits such as temporary settings, certain remote locations and special cases. For clarification on your project permit requirements, please feel free to reach out to us for a chat… we would love to hear from you!

How much does a container home cost?

The 40-foot 1-bedroom 1-bathroom fully self-contained ‘Clovelly’ model starts at $119,000 (plus taxes).

This does not include foundation, site servicing, deck, roof packages, landscaping or design.

Can I visit one of your completed container homes in-person?

Yes. Limited viewing opportunities may be available by appointment only. Please feel free to contact us for more information.

Why would I choose a container home over other tiny home options?

It is our belief that our container homes are simpler, more affordable and more sustainable than most other tiny home options on the market.

How does payment work?

A 60% deposit will be required at proposal sign off, followed by 40% payment at completion of drawing package and final design sign off. Any change orders and extras will be invoiced at completion of the job.
