Phoenix company builds container homes that start at $ 45,000
Due to the easing of restrictions around Phoenix-based backyard houses (aka ADUs) Related equipment has created an affordable small, medium and large home solution: container homes that start at $ 45,000.
Linked Equipment creates custom turnkey homes from shipping containers. In collaboration with design specialists, each client can create a personalized living environment that matches their available space and budget. They can choose the paint color, the number of pieces, the pieces and even the finishes.
The owner checks locally what he is allowed to build on his property. Linked Equipment designs, builds and delivers a custom home that meets their local regulations.
“Quality is our differentiator,” says Mark Pike, president of Linked Equipment. “We use better materials and we don’t skip safety steps. I would like to think that our buildings are constructed the same or better than most of the commercial buildings we visit.
Better for the owner
Architectural, civil, and MEPS plans usually cost a good chunk of your construction budget, and many people don’t know where to get these services. When you work with Linked Equipment, they have engineers who provide appropriate blueprints. This is what you will need to obtain your permits.
Linked equipment addresses many of the challenges associated with a second unit. Its engineers care about all mechanical, structural, electrical, safety and fire standards.
Linked Equipment is built to industry standards, so its homes are strong and secure and feel like a home, not a prefabricated mobile home. When the owner is ready, Linked Equipment will build it and ship it to their property and gently place it on a mat.
Affordable Homes aka ADU
Affordable homes go by many names. State agencies call them accessory housing units (ADUs). They are commonly referred to as grandmother units, in-laws suites, small houses, cave man, she sheds, side units, affordable homes, modular living spaces, container homes or any other name.
Affordable homes vary in shape and size, containing everything a person needs to live, including a kitchen, bathroom, and a place to sleep. They typically range from 220-square-foot studios to 1,000-square-foot homes with multiple bedrooms. Most states have requirements for permitted sizes. Usually the second living space is not allowed to be larger than your main house.
States easing restrictions
Many municipalities in the United States have adopted the concept of allowing auxiliary apartments, often referred to as “grandma’s apartments,” in single-family neighborhoods. States are not only relaxing regulations, lowering fees, and granting grandfathering to existing structures to provide housing, but even offering grants and loans to homeowners to help them do so.
