It would also match my garage.

I've been thinking about getting one for long term storage of some stuff, or even as a garage/workshop.

I believe I paid 1800 plus 400 to have it delivered from the Beach to Sugar Grove about 3 years ago. It is 8x20. I may have been able to build a nice shed for that much but this was 0 work, a little more secure and I can move it if I decide to.

The one in cabin photo - with 3 side doors - is awesome! Are those common? I always assumed they were all door-on-end.

Looks like 3 40 footers side by side.

A few years ago they couldn't give these things away. I bought a 40' container in SC for $750 delivered. Now there's a market for them and the price has gone out of sight. They aren't quite as easy to use as they look, they need to be nearly perfectly level for the doors to open. The truck they use to haul them needs good access (good gravel or paved) you may need a crane or a big percent of equipment to move them around. That being said I'm looking for 2 20s to recess into the hillside behind house and use it for a workshop, plant my garden on the roof and have a hideout when the Zombie Apocalypse comes.

Looks more like 3 20's side by side to me...

Either way it's cool but cutting through those things can't be fun.

I was with you Gimme, at first I was thinking "they have three doors on the side?"

Shipping containers...

I was looking at shipping containers for home building.












The possibilities are endless...
