    Excellent plan. I decided long ago that a shipping container is the best bet, quick, secure, you can cut to suit your requirements, you cant weld burglar proofing to it etc.

    I want to move all my woodworking tools in here. The plan is to cut a door and window into the side, and then kit it out with workspace and cupboards/drawers.

    Outside I want to clad in corrugated iron and wood, something in this style.

    Thanks. Plinth are 500x500 and 300 below ground.

    My neighbor is a really dense American who tries to sue me for everything. Each time it backfires on her. She was standing watching while the container was placed, so expect (and welcome) a call sooner or later. It's been a while since I told her to f-off!

    Container was R19.5k, delivery R3.3k

    That price sounds excellent to me. How does it look? Full of dents etc.

    It has a few minor, dings on the sides, but no structural damage. There are no holes and virtually no rust. The worst part is the roof, which is bulged outward on 2 places. It would almost appear as though a heavy piece of machinery toppled over inside and pushed the roof up. I'm sure if I jumped on it hard enough I could almost straighten it again, but I am not overly concerned about it as I'm going to be placing a pitched roof on top and a ceiling inside, so the dents will be completely hidden anyway. Ditto with the cladding inside and out.

    What I had in mind for the roof. I will only make the long overhang on one side over the door/window.

    True. About 5/6 years ago a "once used" container was R35k. Yours is obviously a bit past "once used" but still. I guess your quality here is about R30k.

    What is your estimated cost at completion per m2?

    Be interesting to compare to a brick building with same finishes.

    A bonus is that no plans are required, so you can move it to your next house if needed.

    Very nice concept, kudos to you.

    Will keep a tally on the costs. Plans are required as it is larger than 9 sqm.

    But yes, the bonus is that I can pick it up and move it.
