Greetings Everyone! I hope that you all are well! I am new to the community but have had a personal goal of building a container home for the last year. What is the first step: 1. Acquiring land? Or, 2. Finding land?

I honestly don't know where to begin. I sort of have in mind what I want, and how much I want to spend. I intend to build somewhere in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and have reached out to the designers/architects of PV14 house but they never replied. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Administrator Fist meet with your city building code compliance officials and find out if they allow shipping container homes. I know that there are few container homes in TX. Then find an architect and an engineer that have an interest in this method. 4 months ago

Shipping Container Home

North Branch, NY A behind the scenes look at the building process of a shipping container home by Tim Steele Design with Big Prototype. For more information,...

Hello and thanks for the add to the group. I have been looking at these various types of builds for over 4yrs now. My motivation is to be mortgage free and with as little utilities as possible in a home that suits ALL of my needs.

I have planned designed re-designed added more containers and just added a pool container to the design LOL. Up here in Ontario Canada I know of only 3 builds that are actually homes not businesses or contractor sites. I have announced to the designers and the company I am getting the containers from....that next year is the date I start with my build. Told my mom (you know mom's need to know these things) and my real estate broker that I am selling my current house to do this. Right now I am getting my design officially done for a building permit. and am searching for land.

So I am hear to look at other ideas thoughts and or what I may have not found to make my build as smoothly as possible.

Administrator Syr. Good to see you here. There are hundreds of homes here you can learn from. I will post many more soon. Enjoy. 4 months ago
