** We would like to offer a huge thank you to our suppliers, vendors, and service providers. We appreciate your great services and amazing products. This project would not have been the same without you all! **
A MODS home begins as new or lightly used steel containers that are then modified and outfitted in our factory. A majority of the work is done in off site, including removal of side panels, vertical beams inserted, cutting opening for doors and windows, and the insulation. Container homes require some type of concrete foundation, slab or poured basement. When the outfitted containers arrive on site, they are lifted by crane onto the foundation, then welded into place. The interior of the home is finished on-site.
We take great care to ensure the containers we use to build are clean and ready for construction use. We also make sure we are building your container home to your specifications and needs. MODS container homes are built to the International Building Code (IBC) and meet or exceed ISO construction standards.
