"I've got most of the grottos built for this year, but am struggling to get the last few sorted. My elf friend has an office in his garden made out of a container, and was wondering if I could have something like this for my grottos. They need to be warm, cosy and easily decorated."
I think we have just the idea for your grottos, and we can ensure that they are warm, cosy and very festive! We will start with the outside of your grotto by taking a standard 40ft new (once shipped) container and put cladding on all of the outside walls and roof so it looks like your elves have built the grotto straight from the woods you won’t be able to tell it was a shipping container. Here is an example of what we could make the outside of your grotto look like >>
All of the internal walls with be ply-lined and insulated with a melamine finish this will help ensure that none of the heat leaves your grotto. Then, electrics will be fitted including four 5' twin anti-corrosive light fittings and a switch to ensure your grotto is well lit so everyone can see how wonderful your grotto is. Lights will also be fitted onto the outside of your container for all of your late night visitors. We will also fit four 13 amp twin sockets so that you can plug in your Christmas tree lights. Finally, we will fit three 2KW wall mounted convector heaters so that everyone who comes into your grottos forgets how icy and cold it is outside.
We can also fit a log burner just like George Clarke did, for extra warmth where you can burn your logs to make a toasty fire. You can put your chair right next to it and have a nice relax before all of the hard work starts on Christmas Eve! We will fit quick assembly shelving in your container to help keep all of the good girls and boys' presents organised. We will have lots of anti-vandal windows around your container and if they don’t get to frosty then everyone will be able to see how much fun you are having inside. Finally we will fit your grottos with high security lockboxes and Insurance rated padlocks to make sure only good girls and boys can enter your container!
Your Grottos will be delivered by hi-ab (craned) vehicle to anywhere in the UK, but if your do need your grottos shipping we can supply them with a CSC plate and deliver them to any UK port. If you are ever bored of your container and want a new one we will happily buy the container back off you. I hope this will help sort your last grotto out and make sure that everyone gets to see you before Christmas.
P.S. I thought you may like a photo of me getting all in a pickle wrapping my presents. If you offer a gift wrap service I would be very grateful!
