Really curious how the process goes with these in terms of plan check and permitting (along with approval of the engineering). I know some cities have already had some built so there might be some precedent for that, but generally I imagine getting AHJ approval would be a bit of a pain the first go around.

I could probably do some research to see how others have dealt with approvals in the past, but bringing it up here seems more relevant.
Thanks! I will definitely take you up on the offer. There is precedent in ATL and a few other southern cities and we are starting the conversations down here. I sent our consultant the plat information and once I receive the opinion back from the city, we will begin the layout.

I'm pretty stoked about getting to this point. Thanks for your input and offer!

Best Regards-mk

Hey, terribly sorry MKSixer, been busy with work. I'm replying to your PM now!

Also - great designs! I'm sure with the permits it won't be any different than building a house, you most likely will need a PE stamp off the drawings and so long as you are code compliant I'm sure you'd be fine. But do double check before starting building

There is already someone doing so. Let me get the information from my partner and shoot it to you. He's out for a couple of days but when he returns I will do so ASAP.

You had mentioned possibly targeting buyers as well. How would financing impact a buyer for a non-traditional home? I presume that banks may not see these as great collateral?

I think it could be a spectacular alternative to stick homes. Decent finishes are what, about $160/ft for a traditional stick built home? You’re coming in at 25% the cost on a home that effectively doesn’t need maintenance comparatively.

I ask as a person that is considering land to build a home on. Would like to buy the land outright and finance the build. We’ve even talked of a steel home that would otherwise be intended as a large barn, but finish the interior as a large, open living space with studs to make a floor plan of any desire. You’ve got my gears turning on a really cool container home at a fraction of the cost.

I haven't been following this thread closely but thought I'd share this Instagram video (follow link) from Lot EK. This is quite the use of containers!

Hey...it's been busy.

We have acquired the land for the first 10 homes. We have a line on the land for the next 35-50 which we can acquire from the city for a song-and-a-dance because it's a Go Zone and they are clamoring for investment to redevelop the area.

We are finalizing the plans for 3 basic designs as well as the engineering studies for the aforementioned. We have interest for a low-mid 7 figure investment from a single player in Florida that will cover the first 35 to 50 homes.

This is the boring paperwork/bureaucrat phase of the project.
