Build The Shipping Container House Of Your Dreams

Storstac is excited to partner with Jason Halter & Jeremy Kaplan (Wonder Inc. & New Old Stock) to help you conceive, design, build and install your very own, pre-fabricated shipping container house and/or micro containerized living spaces out of ISO shipping Containers. A truly unique partnership with two industry powerhouses. Design: With over 20 years experience in shipping container architecture, Jason Halter will work with you to design the ins and outs of the container structure of your dreams. Fabrication: With over 450 years of combined experience in the shipping container industry, you’ll be taken care of every step of the way with professionals that truly KNOW CONTAINERS. *All container fabrication/modifications are carried out locally at Storstac’s Toronto facility, ensuring a superior quality product is produced that will stand the test of time compared to pre-fabricated structures built and shipped from overseas.

Please note: Storstac Inc. is a custom shipping container fabricator/modifier. As you guessed, a container home is hard to quote based on limited information, as each of our builds are custom designed to meet the end users ultimate design and functionality goals. In order to quote you on the fabrication of your custom shipping container home your first step is to engage with an architect who will produce architectural/design drawings. Once the design/plans are established, you are welcome to submit them to Storstac for quotation. Contrary to a lot of the information floating around the internet, container homes cost roughly the same as traditionally built homes (when built to meet the OBC). Container homes do have their advantages, but unfortunately, large cost savings are not one of them as shipping containers (which create the structural skeleton of the home) are just one of a number of factors that ultimately determine the homes final cost.

Services Offered:

– Structural drawings and associated engineering stamps

– Shipping container procurement and modification/steel fabrication work

– Cutting and framing openings (windows, doors, all interior openings)

– Structural reinforcements (where required) adhering to the OBC

– Interior framing and insulation

– All modification work is done locally at our Toronto modification facility using North American steel/parts..Proudly modified in Canada!

Micro Containerized Living

Founded by Jason Halter & Jeremy Kaplan, NEW OLD STOCK is a story about design meeting construction using ISO shipping containers. It shows how we can reuse, re-purpose, up-cycle & make rare the everyday object. The design mandate is about future proofing & building small & efficient space, micro architectures, get-away cottages, or urban cloisters. Micro-sized footprints are created using one-to-two ISO shipping containers. The options of what you can do are virtually endless, and the end result leaves you with architecturally intriguing spaces that are both sophisticated in design and function, yet compact and relocatable.
