Every city, state, county and municipality have their own set of regulations, building codes, zone requirements, ordinances and building regulations for a particular area.

Your plan may need to be modified to comply with local requirements regarding many matters. There are the considerations for seismic conditions in certain countries like Costa Rica, snow loads in colder climates, energy codes in areas that might be off the grid, soil concerns as well as maritime zoning

A local architect or engineer can determine if the plans meet local codes, and you may need to obtain particular permits or specific inspections from local government agencies before and during construction.

We advise that you speak with a local building official, a licensed engineer and architect before beginning construction or applying for permits.

We also advise that you strictly comply with all local building codes, zoning requirements and other applicable laws, regulations, ordinances and requirements.

There are some cities and states that require a licensed architect or engineer to review and then “seal” a blueprint. Or, officially approve it prior to construction due to the many concerns over energy costs, safety and several other factors.

    Hi I was just inquiring about financing for a container home. For example after you get a blue print when building a non-container home you can get a loan to build generally. Does any one know if you can do the same with a container home? If so who will and what do you need to qualify?

    Just saw yr message. The difficulty with a container home is that a lot of banks worldwide are considering them as mobile homes. It is a fact that if you get a loan and you do not pay the bank timely and move your containers elsewhere the bank has nothing to put a lien on. It is not easy. I know that in Europe it has been done but than the bank is asking for additional collaterals.
