Shipping Container Rules & Regulations in Seattle, WA

In Seattle and across Washington, you’ll find a wide range of eclectic homes and businesses that have been redesigned from shipping containers — and their popularity continues to grow. Shipping container retail and residential spaces operate at a fraction of the cost of traditional properties and allow developers to be creative with their structures.

While the cost of building a container home or commercial property will vary depending on the size and specs of the project, the building process is similar to detached houses and brick-and-mortar stores. Developers and contractors must submit the proper permits to the city for approval, including electrical and plumbing plans and safety compliances.
