Do you have a talent that is big, and also takes up a lot of space?  Do you daydream about having your own studio?  Does your current home not provide you the space you need?  How about a storage container?

Storage containers can be converted into stand-alone buildings, perfect for an artist studio or workshop.  Depending on how much space you have, containers come in 20’ and 40’ long, 8’ wide.  You can insulate them and modify them to allow natural light, insulation, electricity, easy access and anything else that helps you be more creative.

Containers can be placed on your land near your existing home.  Depending on how much of a do-it-yourself-er you are, you can either have a container modified to meet your needs or order a container and kits to modify it yourself.  Common medications include personnel door, roll-up door, windows, skylights, AC/heat, insulation.  If you do the modifications yourself,  you will need to be able to weld. You can have an electrician bring more light (and the possibility of the internet) to your studio.  Put your creative energies into planning out the perfect space for you.

Since this is not primary residence, you do not have to include plumbing unless you want to. And you can find creative lighting solutions that do not require an electrician. Many container modifications are DIY. Ask us for advice or installation kits.

Container artist studios get your supplies out of the way of your everyday living and into a space devoted just to your art.  No more packing them up and trying to get them out of the way, but rather leave projects out so you can come back to them again easily.  Start planning yours today!
