Catch you next weekend? I's gotta warm up soon.

I might head out on the Fri and do a couple of days at Geehi. A few Monarchs on tricicles will be there on the friday night. Otherwise see you on the Sat.

Another idea, don't claim it's a good one though, especially as I hated school.

But old portable school rooms are very popular around our way currently. They are good because they are cheap, come in on a low loader and get plonked in place. However I strongly suspect you'd need planning permits etc, and they are not hugely durable as they were only ever meant to be temporary, so may need some carpentry work etc. Also, they have a certain............ummmm............ aesthetic. Good light as they tend to have windows right along two opposing sides, and weather proof. Some even come with carpet!

Temporary? The UK's version of temporary Govt building is around 50-60 years. Hopefully Oz is a bit shorter. Auctions are a good source of temporary buildings. Transportation/handling usually the biggest deal killer.

So, did anyone actually end up getting a container set up as a workshop?

One wise fellow I knew had a Yurt built in the backyard for his wife. She gets something new and 'nice' and you get a little more space?

Will the property take a 'granny flat' - council/state rules ... ? If so then a granny flat is just a very small house ... 60m^2 or less .. fit with patio doors and roll the bikes in/out...

may be get some brochures and leave them on the table?

we're just about to launch down the road into replacing the poor old about-to-collapse timber barn in our back garden with a new replica (similar footprint and roofline/pitch,etc) based on two 20' containers set parallel to one another, 6m apart. This means we'll have a 6m x 6m space inside, with 2 lockable rooms 6m x 2.4m, one down each side and a mezzanine above.

It's going to be my wifes "barn", but I get to set up the blacksmithing gear we've slowly been collecting and build a little forge and have pre-claimed one container as storage for my stuff (this on top of the double garage and 5m x 10m shed.....

All good, never enough sheds! The container recycling was my wifes' idea, she likes the idea of ready-made with the option to customise as we want.

Shipping Containers

Hey Davo, seeing as this thread has barked up again and you never said what you did do, here is a link to bringing my container home. http://www.flickr.com/photos/96537456@N08/10901237224/

For some reason I cant post photos, so scroll through and have a look. If anyone can tell me why I cant post pics that would be good.

My Container shed is bloody hot in the sun, you might even end up with a ballooned steel tank if you park one half full of fuel in there. My plastic containers grow and shrink.
Mine has a wooden floor so the sugar ants made it in.
Its ugly as sin.
It is now full of stuff I never knew I had.
I never bothered the council about it, they have enough to deal with, poor fellas.
And its as secure as the padlock I put on it.
But for $1200 it was a good purchase and it serves the purpose.
I am sure I will always get my money back on it.
Lucky enough (if you look in the pics) I have a mullock heap I could extend and bury it Cooper Pedy style.
For a quick fix, (two years later) go for one. Otherwise I would go a retail shed and concrete floor, you wont loose that value on your place.

I couldn't get flickr to work either ,

I did manage with photobucket.com

"Photobucket will also give you the option of selecting "IMG" you can select this box and paste it directly into your thread without using insert image button. "

======================
That said .. some have done it ..



The source looks like (with the beging and ending <> deleted)
img width="500" height="356" alt="desaturated triumph" src="http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2894/9336545465_a0a17e56ff.jpg" title="desaturated triumph">

There is a thread just on posting images .. http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...t=919&page=420

Don't pay too much attention to the fist few (hundred) pages - some stuff no longer works.

Oh another .. only 2 pages
