Frequently asked questions
Do I need a permit to add Shift to my property?
In most cases you won't need a permit for Shift Play. The base unit is less than 120 sq ft, and is considered an accessory structure in most jurisdictions across the country. There are many exceptions to this rule however, and if connecting Shift to the “Grid” with permanent power, water and/or waste connections, we recommend consulting with your local building and safety department. Steelblox provides permitting service for an additional fee if a permit is desired before purchasing.
Where do you deliver to?
We deliver throughout the Continental United States. We can deliver to other North American locations such as Mexico and Canada, but special rates will apply and should be discussed in advance.
How long does it take?
If in stock, and you are not permitting the project, Shift can be delivered and installed in 2-4 weeks. When stock is not on hand, please allow 12-16 weeks for delivery.

If you are going to permit your Shift as a permanent add-on structure to your property, the lead time will largely depend on your local building department's approval process. This can vary considerably from state to state. Our specialist will provide this information during the feasibility process.
What is included in the price?
Shift includes all pricing in its models. Any options that are available are presented with costs upfront as you configure your product. Just add what you want, and instantly see pricing and finance costs.
Is there a possibility of incurring extra charges?
There are situations that can trigger additional installation charges. Some examples include:

If hired for installation, Steelblox will send a team out for an on-site feasibility assessment to ensure we understand the entire scope of the project.  This ensures all costs are understood upfront. 
  • Larger crans for longer reach
  • Installation on steep hillsides (greater than 15% slope is a good rule of thumb)
  • Longer trenching for utility hook-ups
  • Significant demolition, or removal of items such as sheds or garages
Does Shift include heating and air conditioning?
Yes. Your Shift Live and Work come standard with heating and air conditioning. Shift Play is a blank slate and does not come standard with this option.
Do you offer financing?
We offer pre-arranged financing options through our dedicated financing partners up to $100k. You can include all costs of the project in the financing, including delivery, installation, demolition etc. 

If the cost of your project exceeds this amount, we can help you tap into your home equity (through a HELOC or Cash-out Refi), or obtain a traditional loan (construction loan, renovation loan). Reach out to us and we’ll coordinate financing with our lending partners.
Does it cost extra for cabinets, plumbing fixtures & appliances?
No it doesn’t. Both the Shift Live and Work models come fully equipped with everything you need. Our interior design team has carefully selected all the finish fixtures and appliances to optimize the form and function of the space.

For the do-it-yourselfers, Shift Play is a blank slate for you to customize your own space. This unit does not come with any utility connections, cabinetry or appliances, and is a great way to save on cost.
Does Shift come with furnishings?
Our base price does not include the furniture you see in the photos on our website. However, we are an interior design firm and have relationships with our suppliers of the furnishings you see in our marketing presentations.

If you need assistance in purchasing furniture, please let your Sales Assistant know and we will connect you with our interior design team.
How do you install Shift?
Shift will arrive on a flatbed or tilt bed trailer.The units are lifted off with a crane or forklift and set on the pre-prepared foundation. Our units are ideally installed on a foundation system such as a concrete slab or compacted gravel with a paver system. This can be done by you in advance of our arrival or can be contracted through one of our installation partners. Fees for foundation preparation and utility connections can be added as an option at checkout. These fees are site specific and regionally based.

If your project is being permitted, all permanent connections to the foundation will meet all state and local, earthquake and flood requirements.
