Saw this Open Source Cargo Container Plan earlier and got to thinking.
I have have a lot of projects going on, and it will be nice
to have them isolated while under one roof.
Thinking something like a well insolated warehouse for 5 20 foot containers. Strawbale or something with a rocket mass heater
, and ventilation for cooling
. Some solar
panels or whatever local
is most abundant.
All utilities offloaded to the warehouse, while each container is purpose built, and remains portable so a lift system installed in warehouse roof can lift and lower a container onto a trailer.
Might be worth investigating standard garage and trailer systems for that purpose. Cost of wood
vs metal frame and related container management systems for each type of frame.
one container for personal quarters, one for general tools, could have one for utilities but can offload to warehouse, one container to house space observation lab equipment, a container for Burning Man Projects, etc.
Main purpose is to work year round in climate controlled environment, with very low long term housing overhead and be able to ship a project
container off as needed. Containers can either return, or be sent to a new home freeing up space for a new project. Figured 5 containers for a max of 5 projects happening at any one time, to fit in a 5 day work week.
Might setup more comfortable personal housing near the warehouse once complete, and create 501c3 or LLC for each container depending on project types for US tax reporting purposes.
Guess a warehouse isn't so tiny, but this idea began small.
Looking for ideas and experienced advice. Thanks.
