nice work. have you ever tried punching windows into the container, or are you satisfied with one end open as a large window while in use? also, do you mind sharing what each container costs when purchased 12 years old? where did you source them? thanks for sharing your creative work with us all!

I had side doors with 2' x 2' windows installed on each container.

The containers were $2,700 each for 20' x 8' (those are the short ones). You can get better pricing in most cities, but these were delivered. Because of the additional door/window I paid a extra $1650 each. That is way too much.

Here is how I would do it all over.

- Buy 'refer' or refridgerated containers.
- Cut the doors and Windows myself - use 1/8" 2"x2" angle iron to reinforce cut outs

I bought mine from Maloy Storage in Albuquerque, NM. They do custom containers for all sorts of bizarre projects.
