DESIGNED for DEVELOPERS

We’ve teamed up with our friends at ALT to make a special offering of our single container home fully built and approved as an ADU in California. They will be producing this unit “the single” and you can be one of the first to have one!

RESOURCE for BUILDERS

How about some copy about the BLBS relationship? The description can be worded in a way that shows how HC can support other organizations for emergency shelters or university housing

SUPPORTING the
UNDER-SERVED

We make sourcing SIMPLE

HomeContained works with manufacturers from all over the world. Our goal is, always, to bring in the best design and quality at a fair price. Our experience sourcing and manufacturing in China is the most extensive and many of our Chinese partners are smaller cottage industry operations and owned and operated by families. We also work with some of the largest and most respected companies that have work in the industry for decades. Innovation in design and manufacturing are essential to our projects.

Partnership with
Award Winning Architect

In 2010 we created the first prototype home. Built with three 12 foot high containers and 2 high cubes this home showcases materials and methods that are used in all our small home offerings. This home has lots of light and open spaces. We were also able to explore 3 wayts to offer our build, single, joined and spanned containers.

2016 our second prototype was buil using the Single Container as a modular unit and adding it to concrete raised basement to create a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home. This home is great for a one to 3 people and.
