20ft Garden Office Container Case Study
We received an enquiry for the supply of an ex-shipping container, to be used as extra space in a London back garden. Our client initially required Lion Containers Ltd to just supply the container, but after discussing the project at length, we also quoted on all external works. Internal works were to be handled by the client.
The biggest challenge with this job was a potential site restriction issue. Due to the container being delivered to a busy London postcode, with limited garden access, we had to carry out careful research. Once we were happy that delivery would pose no issues, we submitted our quotation. The container was to be positioned in our clients' back garden, and was created using a 20ft new (once shipped) container. The container was fitted with a high security lockbox, and was prepared, masked and painted white at our client’s request, with self-priming specialised container paint.
We created an aperture and box frame, and installed a standard insulated weatherproof personnel door (W 910mm x H 2065mm including frame). This had a 90 degree opening of 710mm, a 10 point locking system with 5 pin anti-drill Euro profile cylinder, and full door furniture. A tie back was included in order to avoid the door slamming, as well as a rain run-off strip above the door.
We also created a 2843mm x 2200mm aperture and steel box section surround. This was created in order to install a 2 panel 2743mm x 2100mm UPVC Sliding Door, which we also supplied. It was delivered successfully with no issues, and we are now in talks regarding the internal works.
New 20ft Container for Home Extension
I have been keeping an eye on your website and Facebook page through out my project, great to see lots of cool projects that you're involved with!
Thank you for the smooth transaction and delivery of my last 20ft container from you and every one that helped from lion. I have successfully managed to convert it into a nice little living space having four windows and a extra door to accommodate a bed, wood burner, desk and home cinema system with a projector, I will try to get some pics of to you when I have a moment. I have loved the whole project and as initially planned I am now looking into an extension for a kitchen, bathroom and storage / work shop area...
