About Boma Properties

Why shipping containers?

Containers are unique, memorable, and can act as adult building blocks that allow your creative spirit to take over. They are affordable, easy to move, and manufactured to be structurally sound to withstand the elements while protecting their contents.

How fast can you get me my container?

90 days after all specifications are confirmed! As you can see this is much quicker than our competition or any other traditional builds.

How much does shipping cost?

We build the cost of shipping into the cost of your quote and take care of the delivery too!  Our pricing does not tack on little fees and we are confident we can beat any price from our competition.

Do you guys use recycled containers?

Generally, we use new containers built for purpose.  We prefer this method because it  provides the most guaranteed structural  integrity that  will last a  lifetime. We can use recycled containers for personal use, but do not suggest it for commercial builds.

How do I get started?

Shoot us a message and we will take it from there. We can customize to meet your building requirements from layout to building codes to finishes. If you need some inspiration we have some pre-existing layouts on our website. Take a look at our process page for more info!

How does Boma Properties container homes prevent condensation?

Steel framing and closed spray foam prevents condensation while complying with all building codes. This creates the vapor barrier we need. We also recommend recycled PVC panneling as dry wall can crack or absorb water in adverse conditions.

What do you suggest for foundation?

There are 3 types of foundations we suggest our clients utilize.  They are listed and described in our order of suggestion below:

  • Stem wall:  opitonal Fox-Box, insulated foundation. Prevents pump freezing while still allowing access to plumbing. This gives you a consistent look. (best design)  Estimated cost - $10,000
  • Sono-tube: 6 pillars or 4 reinforced pillars can set the container up. Most cost-effective option.  Estimated cost $4,000
  • Slab: Roughed in plumbing so it looks like its sitting flat on ground. Best looking/least functioning. No crawl-space Estimated cost $8,000-10,000

*Boma Properties does not build foundations.

Do you provide architectural drawings?

We can provide basic layout, elevations, electrical and plumbing. If you need stamped plans you will need a licensed architect in your specific location.
