    Here's how one shop was set up. First shot shows the way they linked both containers. Second shot shows the "skylight/flashing" they used to bridge the span between the two boxes. The inside walls were cut out to give an almost 16 ft. width.

    What is the height, width, and length of these? I probably couldn't build an addition to the shop for the price of one of these.
    I would just be afraid it would be like working in an oven from the metal heating up in the summer. Has anyone ever worked inside one of these? Regarding the ebay link, you would have to pay to have it hauled to your location on top of the cost I assume? Looks interesting.

    I was thinking paint booth. It's already explosion proof. Put a fan and some lights in it and it's ready to go. At least the fan would keep the oven temps down a bit.

    I've seen them used as kilns also.

    If you look around a bit you might also find some of the "retired" refrigerated units for sale. They are already insulated....

    For those that receive it, this months AARP magazine has an article on modular housing being built using containers.
