Five Ideas For Shipping Container Tack Houses

Container Stop has provided the Central Coast of California with the best possible tack rooms made from shipping containers. Customized by Container Stop, of Paso Robles, each type of tack room can be suited to it’s individual needs. Horses and other farm animals need a lot of storage space for the saddles, and other tack. Here are some quick ideas to help customize any shipping container tack room.

  1. Consider lighting. Electricity is an option that can be used inside the container and also on the outside. Consider the structural layout of the shipping container and plan out what goes where before installing any electrical components. Solar panels are a great option!
  2. Horse stalls. Adding one or two horse stables to the tack house is a simple effective method of having easily transportable stables, and insulating them is an option worth the investment. Having the stable prebuilt saves the cost of building a stable from scratch.
  3. Storing feed. Animals and varmints love invading a fresh food supply, and keeping the farm’s food, hay and other precious resources locked up tight is not as hard as it seems. Cabinets can be built into the tack house and securely locked up. Counter spaces naturally take form when installing cabinetry, and having hanging hooks for other tack house goods makes for good organization on the walls. The security of shipping containers is designed into building them in the first place, to keep out any pests.
  4. Storms and weathering. Shipping containers are nearly air and watertight. The technology used to make storage containers ensures durability, strength and long-lasting use. Setting up a gutter system or rain catching system could be a useful way to recycle and use fresh rainwater and to also redirect it exactly where you want it.
  5. Creating additional storage space. It is so simple to line up two shipping containers parallel to each other and place a roof over the top. It makes for a quickly built barn, large shed, garage or workspace. Every tack room should have a wide open space to work in. Keeping a metal roof overhead is sure to shade the animals on hot summer days, and keep rain away during stormy winters.

Container Stop provides Atascadero storage container customers with nearly endless possibilities to customize a tack house specifically for each customer’s personal taste. A solid source of agricultural storage needs has been fulfilled for an area of California with many ranches, farmland and open spaces.

Container Stop Shows Exciting, Sustainable Building Design

Sustainable Building Designs: Build with Shipping Containers

With great ideas come great responsibilities. The great idea is to use existing, empty shipping containers as an option for sustainable housing. This new idea is rumored to have started with a man writing his architecture thesis on reusing shipping containers as sustainable housing in the 1970s. With just over 17 million shipping containers in the world and only around 6 million currently being used with ships, trains and trucks, there are high numbers of empty, unused containers. A great resource to tap into, when our society seems to have gotten itself into a crisis to find affordable housing. Not only are people on the lookout for a place to live, it seems as though the space available to live in has gotten smaller, along with a budget for that housing.

Presenting, the solution: empty shipping containers! Plentiful, cheap, and prefabricated, modular housing is stackable, plentiful, resourceful, and budget friendly! The durability lends itself to decades and decades of use, holding up to be one of the best ideas of the 20th century! Shipping containers only spend about one-third of their lives filled with cargo for shipping, leaving most of their lives unfilled and useless, lying around shipping container yards. The United States imports much more than it exports, and with the empty cargo containers stacking up, unused, wasting space, Container Stop, the company providing storage containers for Gilroy, can help fix the issue.

Locally sourcing recycled storage containers for Gilroy and all of California will have benefits far-reaching. To have a resource that is not going to disappear, and which can be reused and repurposed at any time, and transported to almost any location with ease, is excellent for sustainable living. Taking the time to recycle, repurpose and reuse millions of upcycled shipping containers could even turn into an export business. Plenty of people in the world are in search of any type of housing which is efficient. Shipping containers can be installed quickly, and stacked tall and wide, and have almost limitless lives when they are stationary habitable structures.

Container Stop has stepped into the lives of many happy customers to provide sustainable, functional and beautiful structures, that will last a lifetime. Sharing the joys of a sustainable future with family and friends is what Container Stop and storage containers in Gilroy, or where ever you need one, is all about!

Before completing the online quote request for Container Stop, take some time to think about answers to these two questions:

  • What do you need for your custom container?
  • Can your provide any other information to help us with your inquiry?

Answers to these questions are the guidelines the Container Stop crew finds helpful for making the needed modifications. Studios, offices and workshops all have unique lighting needs. Safety and productivity are at the top of the list that can bring the most enjoyment and satisfaction from the new space. Having windows and light fixtures installed where you need them it is going to:

  • Reduce or eliminate dependency on extension cords. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSO) there are about 4,000 injuries every year that are associated with extension cords. About half of the injuries are fractures, sprains and bumps and bruises that are treated in hospital emergency rooms.
  • Increase visibility by being able to direct light to where it is needed when it is needed.
  • Help make sure that power tools are used safely.
  • Prevent tripping and stumbling when walking to or from the house after dark.
  • Reduce the possibility of eye strain.

Windows are an excellent source of natural light. Placement of windows, perhaps including skylights or glass sliding doors, overhead lighting, lamps and outdoor lighting is going to increase satisfaction with the new workspace. Think about the following:

  • Where are you going to do the most work and what is the best primary light for that work? If you are painting or sketching, at least one skylight along with large windows might be order as well as artificial lighting that can be directed on the work.
  • Remember that plenty of light is essential when running power tools.
  • Computer work, writing and reading are all improved and eye strain reduced by the right kind of non-glaring lighting in the right places.
  • Are you planning on a storage closet, storage under a workbench or bookcases? Lighting in those areas might be beneficial. It’s much easier to find what you are looking for when a light is shining directly in the space.
  • Is overhead lighting going to work best in some areas of the workspace and desk or hanging lamps better in another?
  • Where will window placement be of the most benefit?
  • Remember to also include where electric outlets will need to be placed so there is someplace to plug in lamps and tools, and switch the lights on and off.
