Modular Answers | Can I use a modular classroom on my home property?

Every week we have phone calls and online chats with people that want to use modular buildings and modular classrooms for all types of space needs. Sometimes we have to be candid and advise people to check with their local building and planning office to obtain details about modular building permits. Here is a perfect example of a chat I had this morning with a person in Alabama:

iModular Guest:
Browsing the Alabama Area for a Used Classroom Double Wide for a personal project.Game Room Etc.

Matt Banes iModular:
Ok…this is tricky because classrooms are designed and built to meet commercial building codes (educational codes actually).

Matt Banes iModular:
I would first check with your zoning or planning department so you don’t run into any problems in the future. If this is not a concern it would be best to look on Craig’s List or eBay and find someone willing to sell you a cheapĀ  modular classroom without any liabilities.

iModular Guest: Ok Thanks I will check with the building department.
