I shut down boxouse, and the plans are now open-sourced: https://www.boxouse.com/ . We built 11 container homes, including 3 that met and were certified as Factory Built Housing at the CA state level. Hopefully some of you can benefit from the bureaucracy we navigated:) Enjoy!

My sympathies for the shutdown. The data you've released is going to be very helpful to people, though.

It sure is an amazing coincidence how often a way to do a thing better, or do a better thing, is not feasible due to the paperwork costs.

A huge plus of containers is portability without having a trailer rotting away under every one. But it's the trailer that helps edge most tinyhouses from 'illegal' towards 'grey area'...
