In Southern California, housing developments were frequently constructed one board at a time, but a design and build team in Los Angeles has created a modular development for the homeless that they claim is less expensive and faster to build.

In 2013, two young business people in Los Angeles started Local Roots. Their initial purchases were a pair of 40-foot shipping containers that had been deconstructed to save on transportation expenses.

Shipping your container internationally?
You will need a cargo worthy container that has passed a survey inspection. Our network of IICL certified inspectors can provide an independent survey inspection that ensures that your “shipper owned container” is cargo-worthy/seaworthy.
They will provide a one-page inspection detailing any necessary repairs and will certify that your shipping container is structurally sound and good for international shipping.
They will apply a new CSC (Convention for Safe Containers) sticker showing that your container has passed. This sticker is good for 1 year.
If your container needs repair, the certificate will be applied once the necessary repairs are made.
