Time Required: A long weekend
Difficulty: Expert

Necessity is the brother of all invention and there’s nothing that we need more than a workshop at the cottage. The biggest challenge is going to be figuring out how to make this massive two-and-a-half ton repurposed shipping container fit into the natural surroundings.

Project Steps

Step 9

As with all our projects, it’s the little things that really take the build to the next level. Here we ‘brojectified’ the workshop by adding some tempered glass panels for the rooftop patio, and used a couple of old school lockers attached with a wood tabletop in between and a dolly underneath to serve as a mobile workbench.

Now all that’s left to do is grab a beer, hang out on your new rooftop patio and dream up what to build in your new Cottage Workshop.
