Farm Container Home Case Study
Lion Containers Ltd were approached by a private client in April 2015, who was looking for several converted containers for storage. As it transpired the containers would also be useful to create a space which would act as a container home. The container home was to be built on our clients’ farm and the units needed to include space for two bedrooms, one bathroom, and an open plan living and kitchen area.
Our clients’ account was managed by one of our lead sales managers who took it upon himself to draw up the layout and plans for the units. There were several restrictions that we had to take into account to make this project work which included meeting the clients’ budget, time frame and delivering the units onto the farm. The track leading to the farm was quite tight and our units wouldn’t have been able to be delivered on one vehicle, so single rigid vehicles were used to access site. For this build it was decided that flat pack accommodation units would work best due to their flexible structure, reasonable cost and ease of delivery. The units were successfully delivered in July 2015 and our client was able to make further savings for these units by carrying out the site installation himself. The units could be built in half a day by two men, so the site set up was able to be completed within three days. We also delivered a 20ft quality used A grade container to site as well for some additional storage.
OPTIONS FOR MODULAR BUILDINGS: TIMBER CLADDING >>
Lion Containers Ltd offer an extensive range of products and services in order to meet with your container requirements. Sometimes the industrial look of a container just does not fit into the environmental surroundings, no matter what colour the container is. We have solved this issue in the past with the help of timber cladding. With a self-supporting timber baton frame we can ensure that the container walls won’t be perforated in the process, in order to uphold the wind and water tight nature of the container. Whilst we do have our “standard” cladding product we have deviated from this in both qualities of wood and configuration to meet the specification of our clients.
