POWER, WATER, SEWER

Power, water, and sewer solutions for your container will depend on your zoning laws. Add solar/wind/battery power, connect to the grid, or use a generator. For water, tap into your main house waterline or your own well/catchment system. Work with the zoning manager of your area to determine what is best.
