Our legal & permittable single 40’ container apartment
Our customer has been issued, as of mid-april 2008, a legal bldg permit for our single 40’ hi-cube shipping container home. It is a legal home. There are not a lot of built-ins or counter tops etc. This is because there is a law which states that there is a minimum number of unencumbered square feet to qualify as a legal home, so we have designed it to meet the legal minimums. From this, you can add-on later with another container structure that connects to it, and have a small efficiency apartment with bathroom and kitchen to live in while building your dream home or future addition connected to this single container home base. With our legal single container home, you have an instant roof over your head with bathroom, shower, kitchen, living area, and secure storage the minute you put this single 40’ container on your property. Don’t forget- you could permit this as an office or workshop and have less requirements plus a permanent structure to boot!
We produce these at our Kalaeloa facility and ship out to the neighbor islands.
You can order it single or double wall, insulated or not. Cost varies greatly depending on the options selected. Let us design one just for you, custom design is included with every home at no charge.
Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the information on this website. That will allow us to more effectively work with you on your home, workshop or office ideas in person, or on the phone. Thank you!
