Shipping Container Use: – 4 You Probably Haven’t Considered:

Shipping Container Use #1: Granny Flat

A shipping container can provide the perfect environment for a small temporary granny flat. While most of us would consider a modular home to be a common shipping container use, we tend to overlook the more obvious idea of a granny flat out the back! Shipping Container homes can be fitted with all the necessary plumbing, electrical and ventilation instillations of a regular home but at a fraction of the cost. A container home is perfect for visiting relatives, friends or short stay international students. It provides the comfort and privacy of a self contained unit, while still offering the convenience of proximity to the home.

Our containers can come bare or pre modified for accommodation use, and can be purchased or hired depending on your individual circumstances.

Shipping Container Use #2: Cubby House

Want to offer the children a private getaway but don’t have the time or skills to build them a tree house? Hire a Gateway shipping container for the perfect cubby house space to call their own. They don’t have to be massive, shipping containers come in a wide variety of sizes with a 10 foot container being the perfect size for the kids (or kids at heart!)

It’s still within the safe confines of your property but it’s out of the way of the main home, so as to avoid unwanted noise or mess. You can even let your children decorate the cubby house as they please, with a range of temporary wall coverings and layout designs.

Shipping Container Use #3: Music Studio

Want to nurture the musician in the family but can’t stand the excessive noise? Sound proof your Gateway shipping container you can provide the perfect space for music jams or band practice without giving up your living room or garage.

Shipping Container Use #4: Man Cave

If you constantly find yourself in arguments over the remote, why not give him a space to watch footy in peace with his very own Gateway shipping container man cave.
