Working From Home In A Shipping Container

Working from home often isn’t easy if its not the kids its other distractions during your working hours that appear. Fact is though having a shipping container for working from home in the back garden or other location separates home and work spaces. I remember back in the UK wanting an office space away from the house for the convenience of keeping people off my work area. Nothing worse than dealing with an important client on the phone to find your pen and notepad are missing. Discussing it later to find out you had a 2 year old visit and your partner decided to let them use it as a scribbling pad. Arguments then ensue and the “but its only a pen” response inflames the situation more.

Working from home in a shipping container creates harmony as you can simply lockup your office when you leave and you also know its a secure structure reducing the risk of burglary at the same time saving marriages.

The other side of this being it keeps people out of your house which in some cases needs to happen. Over the years working in the construction field you come across the odd drug addict from time to time where nobody notices their habit until things start disappearing. Out of sight, out of mind is always the best policy.

Waying up all the options though its also the fact having a shipping container office is also cheap making it more practical than many of the other buildings on the market. I remember looking at a spruce cabin before and seeing a £10,000 price tag on it where a container before starting installing windows,doors and delivery came in at £200 at that time. Doesn’t take much considering which is the better option for the budget especially when the money you save you can have a much more secure and creature comfort office with new chairs and other furniture for the same budget.
