We start with a super-strong steel containers frame and create a home or home office that will be there indefinitely that is cozy and comfortable to live in. We use commercial grade everything so it feels like a home, not like a mobile home.
Shipping Container Homes Are Here
These modules can arrive fully stocked or bare bones. Due to easing restrictions around backyard homes, there is a massive opportunity for homeowners to add that needed permanent structure. Linked Equipment creates turnkey custom homes, backyard offices, cookie-cutter affordable homes, and much more using steel shipping containers. Working with design specialists, each customer can describe a custom living environment that fits their space and budget
Architectural, Civil, and MEPS plans typically cost a decent chunk of your build budget, and many people do not know where to obtain these services. When you work with Linked Equipment, we have engineers that work with us to provide proper plans which are needed to get your permit. Linked Equipment takes on many of the challenges associated with a second unit. Our engineers worry about all mechanical, structural, electrical, safety, and fire standards.
We build to industrial standards, so our homes are safe and secure and feel like homes, not prefabricated mobile homes. When the homeowner is ready, we will build and ship it to their property and gently place it right on a pad. We are not just selling a building. We are going to do everything in our power to make it easier for the homeowner and help them succeed from start to finish. Repeat customers make up half our business.
Affordable Homes (ADUS)
Affordable homes vary in shape and size, containing everything someone needs to live, including a kitchen, bathroom, and place to sleep. They typically range from 220 square-foot studios to 1,000 square foot houses with multiple bedrooms. Most states have requirements around allowable sizes. Usually, the second living space is not allowed to be larger than your main home.
Why Shipping Containers?
- ISBU steel container construction is affordable and does not require new land or infrastructure, just a pad, and hookups.
- Second Units are a good investment because they have a short payback period and increase a home’s resale value.
- Recent changes to many state laws have made the process easier and more streamlined
- More properties are eligible for a second unit, parking requirements reduced, and fees have been lowered.
- Our standardized 20 ft and 40 ft homes fall within most city/state ADU building requirements.
Why A Second Home?
- Flexible Space – Homeowner’s needs may change over time. A second dwelling allows for flexibility and adapts to new demands over time such as a growing family, a workspace, or a live-in nanny.
- To help pay the mortgage – Second units offer a steady source of rental income.
- Housing for relatives – second units allows homeowners with adult children, aging relatives, or relatives with special needs to live together and maintain privacy.
- Downsizing – Some homeowners build a second unit for themselves, often in retirement, while renting the primary dwelling.
- Backyard Workspace / Living Space – With more people working from home, some people have added their new office or workspace in their backyard as a second dwelling unit.
- Isolation for COVID Infected Family – We provide affordable housing with air filtration and an entryway (a personal isolation house) for loved ones that may be infected.
