What are S&A containers?
Adding value to your existing property and creating a revenue generating asset has never been so simple! We simplify the construction process and put the control back into the homeowners hands! There’s no need to endure months of construction and disruption to your neighbours. Once you are ready for us we are in and out of your property within 1-2 weeks. We take pride in our modern design and standard of quality by building to commercial grade for a residential application. Our homes (ranging from 207 sq.ft to 1380 sq.ft) use modular construction, with more than 95% of the construction being completed in a factory, reducing total construction timelines nearly in half.
What can an S&A home be used for?
A Home, a rental suite, office, ADU, guest house, granny suite, in-law suite, cabin or cottage, multi-unit apartment complex etc. The options are endless!
How does a Bank classify a container home?
Simply put, S&A container is a Home. We certify all our homes under your local required factory-built modular status (For Canada this is CSA-A277), which assures that your home has been engineered and built to meet the local building code of where it will be permanently placed. The main difference between a container home and more traditional factory-built homes is that we are building with steel…We just happen to reuse steel from cool cubes that are commonly know as a shipping containers. Our homes have been designed and sealed by registered professionals to be compliant with the local building code and are permitted by local municipalities as standard permanent homes. We use all the same finishes, drywall, quartz, cedar, and spray foam insulation that traditional high end homes would use. S&A containers can be rented as homes just as easy as a regular studio apartment.
Can I stack your homes?
Our homes built from shipping containers which are stacked up to 9 high when travelling on a ship…an S&A container home is in its element when it’s stacked and can be placed on a garage, carport, or even another container!
Are your homes Customizable?
The exterior layout is fixed, but can be mirrored. We have some options for interior cabinets,floors and counters. All mechanical and electrical designs are fixed.
