New shop, finally!

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

New shop, finally!

Postby ScottyD'sdad » Thu Nov 18, 2021 7:03 pm

I have been without a shop, for the past 2 years, after a fire wiped out the house and shop. I finally decided on a 40 foot "high cube" shipping container, 9 1/2 feet high. I installed a 20 foot "I" beam on the ceiling, for lifting, with 2 chain falls and trollies. A propane "garage heater", provises heat. It has LED 4 foot fluorescent type shop lights. Floor is carpeted, for noise reduction. (If I dropped a tool, while installing the lights, I think Barnyard could hear it.). (Carpeting was free, my wife put a request in, on the "telawoman network".) WIll eventually have 3 windows, but probably not this fall. Reason for not building a shop, I don't want to pay taxes on it. Container is not a taxable structure, here. Still a lot of "stuff" to do, inside, but my first cub repair will probably happen this weekend. Sorry, no pictures, I don't post pictures.

Congrats on the new shop. Glad to hear that you are back in business. Being with out a place to work would be a really bad spot to be in..

Shipping containers are the Bomb.. I Love them, and wish I had another one, to keep my nicer tractors in.

I few years ago, I bought a 20 footer, and a year or so later, when the cash was available I got another 20 footer. I spaced them at the correct distance so that when I had the extra cash, I could by one of the Pre-Fab car ports and place in between them.
I covered the car port with tin, fit some used storm windows in the sought end for light, and tied it down, to the shipping containers.

As money became available I made doors for the north end and put lighting in it. Still has a rock floor in it, and hope to put concrete in some day..
The only part I regret was that i did not do this with 40 footers, instead of the 20's.

For anyone considering using shipping containers for shop space or just storage, I recommend getting containers with doors at both ends. You will never regret it.

I didn’t know that some of them had doors in both ends, that would be slick. I’m happy for you, with the new facilities, Ed.

I have a 40ft high cube, I am still organizing it. I wish it had windows for light. I am a bit far from power so no lights yet.

for those of you storing vehicles in them I will share is that they should be well ventilated.

better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it...( YES this includes CUBS! )
