RE: container home
What companies build these homes in Costa Rica? I looked at the site and thought it quite attractive and cozy.

- Take a look at this Container home that was put together in The Tres Rios area east of San Jose. Cost was $40000. I know you would have to get a permit to put in a septic system. You would also have to consider water and electric hook ups.

Our container home was built by Cubica, out of Escazu. www.cubicacr.com. Ask for Arturo. We highly recommend them.
I was under the impression that as soon as the container home has its wheels removed, and it placed on your property a permit is required.
- From my understanding with construction you do NOT require a permit for anything under 70m. Not sure if this applies to containers as well, but I think they would be under 70m unless you had multiple connected.
I read about the wheels being removed on one of the companies here, that 'construct these homes'.
The 70 sq.mt rule was changed a few years ago, according to a builder friend of ours, and now the 'new regulations' says the maximum size for non-architect designed/home-made plans is 30 sq mt.
You would need to check this first, of course.
I am not sure what wheels have to do with a shipping container as they don't have any. A 40' (12 m) container is ~30m² more or less.Dear Member,Please remember to remove any piggybacked messages before posting a reply to CRL. (1)Thank you - Moderator- -
- True that the law is changed. Our building inspector said ALL construction, regardless of size, must now be permitted. Not sure how or whether that applies to containers, though.
