The ever increasing popularity in shipping container homes is inspiring people right across America to expand their creativity to a range of new projects using converted cargo containers. Sourcing and buying used shipping containers has never been easier with the help of our zip search too and the price is relatively cheap compared to other construction materials. Some of the lesser known, yet more interesting projects are:
Shipping Container Swimming Pools:
Ever thought of taking a dip in a shipping container? Probably not, but if you want to add a swimming pool, but have a limited budget a DIY container pool is an option worth investigating. Some designs use a fiberglass mould that is mounted inside the container, where other options include using the existing framework, but includes the use of strengthened side walls.
Shipping Container Storage Facility:
This is one of our favorite conversions and an excellent business model. The set up costs are relatively low, the facility can easily be expanded by adding a second level of storage containers and the entire business can be moved to a new location if needed. That’s a really flexible business to operate.
Shipping Container Art:
Stacked cargo containers have been utilized for some amazing giant canvases by talented artists. Considering shipping containers are designed to be stacked, the cost of erecting a giant container canvas for artists to paint is quite a saving when compared to the erection of a large steel frame billboard.
Shipping Container Security Fence:
A Memphis based tire company recently erected a shipping container security fence around the business to protect from theft of used tires. Previously the owner was unable to protect himself from thieves who regularly cut the wire fence to steal his tires. After gaining zoning variance approval he was able to build a wall of cargo containers around his business, which also double as storage space.
Shipping Container Hotel:
Snoozebox is a portable shipping container hotel business that can be sent to almost any location to create a temporary hotel. The hotel is sent at the specified location and it can be ready to accommodate guests within 48 hours. The whole project needs to be planned and booked in advance but it provides a quick, temporary solution that anyone can benefit from. Each container has a bedroom, a bathroom, internet access, a TV, a personal safe and most other luxuries a regular hotel room offers.
Shipping Container Stable:
Proving to be very popular with horses and getting the nod of approval from Mr Ed, a shipping container horse stable is a cheap alternative to building a full size barn.
Shipping Container Stadium:
A relatively new concept is the portable shipping container stadium for seating at sporting events and festivals. This is a custom built, versatile product that can be easily picked up and transported to different events as needed.
Shipping Container Sauna:
Another great DIY project for the cooler climates. Your friends will love your steaming hot sauna on the cold wintery days. This project is a simple build if you have some carpentry skills.
