Q: What an Average Cost of a Building?
A: Are you building a container home
with large windows or a small on-site construction office? The cost per square foot varies due to the customization of your structure. It’s better to give us a call
to go over exactly what you are looking for, so we can give you a quote.
Q: Are Delivery and Unloading difficult?
A: Not at all! We can deliver quickly and the containers are easy to transport on either a flat semitrailer or in a container trailer. The containers are also easy to unload with the proper equipment.
Q: Can You Deliver Internationally?
A: Absolutely! We have no problem working on your project anywhere in the world. We’ve completed multiple overseas projects.
Q: What Can a Container Be Used for?
A: A container is not simply a living space, but the home, rental suite, office, ADU, guest house, granny suite, in-law suite, cabin or cottage, multi-unit apartment complex, etc.
Q: Does KEESSON Supply Land?
A: A KEESSON
does not come with its own land, but fits very well as a primary residence, a secondary dwelling, a cabin or a cottage.
Q: Where Can I Put a KEESSON Container?
A: There are several neighborhoods that have the applicable zoning requirements to accommodate a KEESSON
container as a primary or secondary dwelling (Most Cities allow you to look up zoning based on your address via their website).
Q: Why Build A Home In A Factory?
A: "Regardless of wind, rain, snow, sweltering heat and other elemental factors that forestall the building process of stick-built homes, KEESSON
homes are built on schedule in an indoor, climate-controlled area.
Creating your home in such an environment also guarantees precision and efficiency. It’s more efficient to assemble a home in a controlled factory environment than onsite. Plus, a factory environment ensures a consistent workforce and a fixed price point.
Factory precision in the modular process has been standard practice in Europe and Scandinavia for decades. KEESSON
is extending this modern tradition to include smart technology that is optimized for your lifestyle now and wired for the future."
Q:Is Building A Modular Home Cheaper?
A: Manufacturing costs for a KEESSON
are in the range of $200/SF to $275/SF, depending on finishings. This cost is for modules ready to be shipped from our factory including electrical, plumbing, mechanical and all of the finishing.
In comparison, building a stick-built home on-site may be more, less, or equal to building a KEESSON
depending on geographic location, individual markets, and quality of materials used. Yet, the standard manufacturing costs for a KEESSON
remain the same.
Building a home on-site, to the same level of quality and spec as a KEESSON
, would be nearly impossible and more costly.
Q: How Long Does It Take To Build A KEESSON Home?
A: Design: Our plans are already created for your ideal home
Assessment: Soil testing, survey, foundation, assessment, etc. (est. 2-3days)
Secure Materials + Production Spot: (est. 2-3 days)
Factory Build: (est. 2-3 working days)
Shipping: (est. 14 days, depending on where it’s going)
Site install: (est. 2-3 days)
Q: Do I Need To Find My Own Contractor?
A: No. We will find all the technical people to do the work.
end-to-end streamlined process allows us to be a one-stop shop and the single point of communication and payment. We’re here to help you every step of the way.

Q: Can I Visit A KEESSON Home and Tour the KEESSON Factory?
A: Please do! We have model homes ready for you to visit in CHINA, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, and Indonesia.
Get VIP updates and invitations on our list, and contact us on social media to follow the building process in real time.
We also invite you to tour our factory. We are proud of how we build and would love to show off our great work. Talk to your salesperson to schedule a tour.
Q: If I Already Have Land, What Reports Do I Need to Bid Our Project?
A: You will need boundary and topographic surveys as well as a geotechnical (soils) report.
Q: What Are the Different Foundation Types Recommended?
A: "While there are several different types of foundations that we would recommend, based on your site and soil conditions, in general, our engineers suggest 1 of 3 types of foundation systems:
Slab on grade: Slab-on-grade or floating slab foundations are a structural engineering practice whereby the concrete slab that is to serve as the foundation for the structure is formed from a mold set into the ground. The concrete is then placed into the mold, leaving no space between the ground and the structure.
Perimeter stem wall or "Raised Foundation": A raised foundation typically consists of a foundation stem wall and footing supporting the exterior walls of the structure, with the middle portion supported on posts and piers.
Helical Pile: Screw piles, sometimes referred to as screw anchors, screw-piles, helical piles, and helical anchors are a steel screw-in piling and ground anchoring system used for building deep foundations. Screw piles are manufactured using varying sizes of tubular hollow sections for the pile or anchors shaft.
All of these options are recommendations, our engineers will check with the local jurisdiction to make sure the structure meets local requirements."
Q: Will KEESSON Revise a Plan or Do a Custom Plan for Me?
A: "Yes. Our team of architects and engineers is dedicated to crafting solutions for your project. Many KEESSON
clients start with one of our detailed plans and modify it to fit their requirements.

Q: How Complete Is the Home When It’s Delivered?
modular structures are about 90% complete when delivered. This is mainly about connecting the structure to the foundation, connecting the utilities and completing our overall setup process.
