If you build a mobile Tiny Home and plan to move it from place to place a commercial composing toilet is probably a better choice. If you stay on your own land a sawdust toilet may be the way to go.
CONTAINER HOMES FAQs
- Set the container directly on the ground or on blocks to level the unit. You may want to choose this option if you plan on moving the unit in the near future or you do not need a permanent installation. This option is not recommended for a container home that is intended to be a permanent home.
- We will provide steel plates that are 12″x12″ with “J” hooks welded to the bottom side to insert into the concrete piers as they set up. The container will be set on the piers and welded to the steel plates. This is the option we strongly recommend for our container homes.
- Digging and pouring concrete piers, then placing crushed gravel around the piers to allow for drainage.
- Pouring the piers and then a concrete slab on top of the piers to give a good solid surface under your container home, this helps keep things from digging under the home. This is our most popular option and the option we would recommend.
- Adding a partial crawl space to either the concrete piers with crushed gravel or the piers and slab. We strongly recommend this option in areas that have really cold climates to accommodate where all the plumbing connections would be made. In most cases we see a baseboard type heater mounted in the crawl space to keep it warn in extremely cold weather.
*** All of these options are recommendations. You should also check with your local jurisdiction to see if they have any requirements.
