Container Guest House [DAY 03] 11 10 2011
Three days had passed since the client came to Stephen looking for a quick solution to a perennial problem; the storage of guests! Container shopping is fun and after looking at a range of options at the yard, the client ended up purchasing a 45 footer. This will make for some great design opportunities because the extra 2.5 feet on each end can easily cantilever off the foundations without extra steel modifications. The container was delivered to an industrial warehouse yard so that the preliminary modifications can be made off-site. The container will be cut in half and reinforced here. Then we will haul the halves to the site on the back of a car-carrier courtesy of a local towing company.
