Why shipping containers make the ideal garden shed

Just like vegemite goes with toast, the classic Aussie shed sits in backyards around the country. Sheds are much more than just a place to store our possessions. For many, they are an extension of the family home. The humble shipping container is probably not the first thing that comes to mind if you are looking to install a garden shed or replace a run down, old one, however it should not be underestimated. More and more are being successfully repurposed in new and exciting ways. Across the world, shipping containers have been converted and modified into everything from houses and Granny flats, to office spaces, to swimming pools and even bars.   

Yes, specialty shed retailers exist, but shipping containers offer a number of benefits when used as a shed.Since shipping containers are made to transport goods safely from point A to point B and withstand exposure to elements at sea, they are built to last. Not only are they highly durable and secure, you can choose from a wide range of sizes, shapes and colors to suit your outdoor area. Shipping containers are also an affordable alternative to buying a brand new shed.

Problems with traditional sheds 

You may not be aware but there are several issues that may arise with the standard shed. Traditionally, garden sheds are made from wood which is especially prone to mold and rotting. This is not a problem associated with shipping containers as they are typically made from anti-corrosive steel which is extremely heavy duty.Since sheds are kept outdoors, warping or the wood can easily occur after periods of heavy rain. Luckily, shipping containers are watertight, so you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your furniture, tools and equipment won't corrode.  

Another issue with buying a shed made out of Colorbond or steel from a store or online is that they are often delivered as a flat-pack. Let us tell you that constructing straight is a lot harder than putting together some Ikea furniture. Buying or hiring a shipping container can save so much time and hassle.

The versatility of shipping containers sheds

The beauty of shipping containers is that they can be customized and modified to match your or your family's needs.They are perfect for storing your lawnmower, gardening tools, barbeque or large outdoor furniture, as well as bicycles and motorbikes. For people that don't need storage, shipping containers also make a fantastic children's playroom, creative space, games room, workshop, personal retreat, carport or boat shed.
