In this post, we will discuss the basic considerations for buying a container, explain how we get building permits for container homes, and show how we offer customization and extension services.  


Purchasing Land

Buying raw, vacant land with no buildings is different than buying a house. Obtaining land financing is much more difficult. Before closing the deal, check to make sure it is close to water and electric utilities.

Appoint a surveying company and request a quote for a complete topographic survey and mapping plan showing all building setbacks. Building setbacks are key because they tell me where I can put the house. I wanted the house to be slightly closer to the boundary of the property to reduce the need to build a carriage and to reduce the cost of connecting utilities.


We purchased high-cube containers to meet a travel condition. The state of California requires shipping containers used for household purposes to have documentation that they do not contain toxic or radioactive materials. This usually means you need a container with the proper certification of travel conditions. If you are interested in purchasing a shipping container, contact the knowledgeable and reasonably priced experts at WEIZHENGH.

It is recommended that you visit your local building department in person, show them the results of the survey, and ask them for a list of everything that needs to be completed in order to obtain a building permit. This survey is important. Each county is slightly different in terms of obtaining building permits.
