**QUICK TIP: Concrete Foundations Are Your Friend

There are many different foundation options you can choose from when placing your container home down on the ground to secure it. 

Some immediate benefits to attaching your container home to a concrete foundation are below:

  • Secures your home in place protecting it against any ground / soil shifting or settling. 
  • Secures your home in case of larger earthquakes and other natural disasters
  • Increases your wind rating from 110 MPH to over 150 MPH!

There are multiple foundation options but many of our customers go with concrete piers as it is much more cost effective than laying a whole slab while still providing similar benefits.

Thank you so much for the yurt. I am using it as an art studio. The extra windows have added so much light. I now spend most of my days in there.

Fast shipping and my tiny home came in perfect condition. Nothing damaged and it looks great. I have spent a couple of nights in it already and it has been great.
