Time Required: A long weekend

Necessity is the brother of all invention and there’s nothing that we need more than a workshop at the cottage. The biggest challenge is going to be figuring out how to make this massive two-and-a-half ton repurposed shipping container fit into the natural surroundings.

Project Steps

Step 1

We’ll start the workshop by cutting an opening in the side of the shipping container to allow for easy access. Inside we’ll have plenty of space for storage and planning, while a deck out front will give us a level building platform. The shipping container’s strength will also allow us to build a rooftop deck; somewhere to hang out and enjoy the view.
