Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You need to only get permits from building and zoning commission and you need to submit the specifications on the pre-fab container home with the materials and construction details to make sure it conforms to the local codes or that you will make it conform to the local building codes. These homes are no different than other pre-fab homes, you have to apply to the building commission, submit your building plans and specifications of what you are installing and get their approval and have a licensed contractor make all of the required hook ups for utilities in accordance with the codes.
