Shipping containers

Postby roofer » Wed Sep 12, 2018 1:59 pm

I have a piece of unregulated land in Izvorishte near Burgas. Im thinking of using containers for house construction. Does anyone have any info on planning or anything. Thanks in advance.

As soon as you want to hook it up to infrastructure you'll need planning, whatever its made of. I remember years ago people were trying to build 'earth ship' type houses from straw bales and had a hell of a time convincing the planning authorities. But they got there. You can put a temporary structure on unregulated land at a density of less than 10%, so presumably as long as you don't need an electricity connection a container would be fine. Let's face it, they put those gypsy type containers down for builders for years at a time. Maybe do like they do in the static mobile homes in the UK and put a couple of faux wheels on to infer mobility. Easy to lock up and leave too
