One of my regular readers, Malcolm, spotted this little building on Oregon Live this morning and passed this onto me. It’s a little home office built from an 8′ by 20′ shipping container. Mike Corvi, a Southwest Portland resident and businessman, bought the gently used empty metal shell for $2,900 and then with the help of a couple of experienced builders, friends, and some sweat equity had a usable building within 6 weeks for a cost of $8,000. It sounds like the next step for Mike could be a business manufacturing complete units like this for about $16,500 each. Thanks again for the tip Malcolm!
Backyard Shipping Container Office
what a great idea! i’ve been thinking about setting up an office in my garden for when I work at home, but the price has always put me off – this might save me some serious cash!
