How the Design Process Works

First, everyone who works with Bob’s Containers has made a commitment to learning more about container homes and the options that are available. Every build is different, with multiple factors that must be taken into account, including:

  • Customizations
  • Permitting
  • Planning
  • Land prep

All of these factors are discussed in multiple phases, starting with discovery.

Discovery Phase

The discovery phase is the most important because it’s when the Bob’s Containers team will sit down with you and discuss your project’s progression. Experts from the team will help advise you on your options going forward, but you should have a general idea of the structure’s:

  • Functionality
  • Purpose
  • Location

If you have this information available, you can then browse through the company’s models or decide to build one yourself. When choosing the DIY route, you will have varying degrees of help and can even supply your own design to work off of to begin.

Once all of the information is provided and the team has a firm understanding of your project needs, the quoting and invoicing process can begin. A custom quote is provided, and it’s non-binding, so you’ll have the option to fine-tune your order further if you wish.

When the quote is fully optimized, you’ll receive an invoice that offers multiple payment options, including:

  • Pay in full
  • Financing
  • Monthly installments

Most projects will require a 50% down payment to begin.

Once you’re ready, it’s time to move into the build phase.

Build Phase

The build phase is the exciting part when the team begins working on your container, executing your plan to meet your specifications. Throughout the build process, you’ll be kept updated on the progress of the build.

A specialist will reach out to you if the building time must be extended or if there are any issues along the way.

Once the shell of the structure is complete, the interior and outfitting will occur. You’ll need to ensure that the clearing and groundwork necessary for the structure are all in place.


Do you have questions before working with Bob’s Containers? A few of the most commonly asked questions are listed below:

A few of the financing opportunities available include:

  • Commercial financing
  • CA ADU grants
  • Classic Bank

Are Fixtures Included?

  • Kitchen cabinets
  • Electric wiring
  • Sinks
  • Stovetop

Where Can Bob’s Containers Be Shipped?

Bob’s Containers has solutions that allow their containers to be shipped all over the world. The company has hubs at integral parts of the U.S., allowing for quick delivery in most locations.

However, delivery to some locations can add significant costs to the build. Bob’s Containers can discuss your shipping options to find the best solution for you.

How Does Delivery Work?

Bob’s Containers delivers its container homes on a flatbed tilt trailer. A tilt trailer allows the home to be dropped right into the proper position, which saves on costs.

As long as there’s space to back up the trailer, a container home can be placed just about anywhere.
