    We are planning to build a house for us. We are travel lovers and we plan to travel around with this across the country. So as you read in the title we are planning a tiny house. We want to know more about the process of making the house. We really want to understand how the plumbing is done in container houses. We are planning to buy from this shipping container company in Toronto. Please do try to explain about the plumbing process in tiny container houses.

    Plumbing codes dont change. The same rules apply from tiny houses to mansions. Where ever you plan on putting any fixture, make sure you can get a vent up and out the roof and grade to the septic.

    yes codes usually dont change,,i have a good friend who sells these container homes ready built, the cost is around 10 to 30k, next time im around these container homes, i will take a looksee in the gut and get an idea on how they go about the plumbing without making it look like a pipe maze
