Shipping Cargo Containers as storage


One of the largest drawbacks of our particular property is there there are no storage structures on it. So there is no place for garden tools, storage boxes, our lawn mower, lumber, scraps, furniture projects etc… They all pile up in the demolition zone which is very crowded, messy and inefficient. I have flirted with the idea of designing and building a shed but I can’t decide where would be the best place for it to be situated on the property at this point. Shipping containers are clean modern blank slates that can be easily converted into so many different spaces – and I am thinking maybe it will be a great green option for storage. Any advice? Has anyone get a shipping container delivered to the Catskills? Does anyone have any suppliers they recommend?

  1. I think that is a fantastic idea. In the docklands in London they have used shipping containers as artist studios and office spaces.
    I bet whatever you come up with it will be fab.

  2. My Mom has one in her backyard & it's really fabulous. It stores all her outdoor lawn furniture & decor. She has plantings that grow on it to disguise it a bit.

  3. I *love* ISO Containers and would build a home with them at the drop of a hat.

    I can't make any recommendations for suppliers sorry but I can definitely say go for it!

    Imagine the possibilities you have when it's no longer required for storage.
