A shipping container isn’t just a shipping container. If you don’t need your container for storage anymore, you can use it for a lot of other purposes. These containers are versatile, durable, and eco-friendly. Plus, they’re so simple that you can take them in a lot of creative directions. You’re only limited by your imagination. Here are a few ideas to help you get started. 

Shipping Container House 

When housing prices go up, so do searches for shipping container homes. You’d be surprised at the accommodations you can come up with. A container can become a lovely little home, and you can add more containers to make the home bigger. With the right modifications, you can use your container as a guest house or even a rental home. 

Play Fort 

If you’ve thought about putting a plastic playhouse in your backyard for the kids, we have a better idea: a shipping container playhouse. Shipping containers are more sturdy than the average backyard playhouse, and they give your kids lots of room to play. A container playhouse will add a unique edge to your backyard. Your kids and their friends will love it. 

She Shed or Man Cave 

You’ve heard of the man cave, and you’ve probably seen those “she shed” commercials, too. You don’t have to call it either of those things, but a shipping container makes a great space for hanging out. Invite your friends or chill by yourself. Either way, you can make it your own. If you have teens, a container space can be a nice place for them to hang out with their friends. They’ll stay safe and get a bit of extra space at the same time. 

Home Office 

If you work from home often, a container can provide an office space for you. A container can let you work close to home while still getting some space and peace. Add a couple of windows to your container, set up a desk, and you’re good to go. If you happen to have your own business, then you may even be able to count your new office as a tax deduction.
