Create A Garage With This Shipping Container Modification
There’s a lot of things to consider when building your garage, such as durability, space, affordability, and safety, among others. The possessions stored in your garage, whether they be vehicles or tools, need to be stored safely and securely.
Why not consider building your garage with a shipping container modification plan?
Shipping containers are made from incredibly strong steel panels, and can easily withstand the toughest of weather conditions. Furthermore, they are also portable, meaning they can be easily moved with the right equipment. You can use multiple shipping containers for your garage, customizing them and modifying them as you see fit. This means that there are multiple potential designs, sizes, and layouts to choose from when constructing your dream garage.
Different styles of shipping container garages
You can create different layouts with shipping containers for your garage. Most of the time, people will use two containers as outer beams and build a separate roof over these supports. Alternatively, you could also use a shipping container as your roof too. If that sounds a little large, you can also easily convert a single shipping container into a compact and secure garage space.
Shipping container sizes
Shipping containers come in different sizes, from 10-foot containers to 45-foot high cube containers. Most shipping containers, however, are 20-foot or 40-foot in size, meaning they are 20-foot or 40-foot long, 8-foot wide, and 8.5-foot high. Speaking in practical terms, a 20-foot container has over 1,160 cubic feet of storage space available, while a 40-foot container has over 2,300 cubic feet of space available.
Customizing your shipping containers
Shipping containers already come in a range of sizes, colors, constructions, and designs, though you can always add custom modifications to your shipping container in order to make it feel more like your own. For example, you can easily add lock boxes, security measures, roll-up doors, flooring, insulation, HVAC equipment, custom windows, paint, vents, shelving, lighting, electrics, and much more to build your dream garage from a shipping container.
