    Pity you can't use solar panels as roofing. At $5-10 each they become competitive with steel.

    And a very comfy 6.096m container it is too! Looking forward to another sleepover in it one day soon.

    I do have doubts about the wisdom of setting up a container terminal in Millmerran though. The tides are a bit low.

    You will be welcome anytime.

    In Millmerran a grand total of four containers constitutes a "terminal."

    They are really only suitable for permanent instalations, plus Matt's 40' containers are already butted together with access holes cut out. There is a weather issue too. Particularly this year!

    I only posted it as an idea but it was developed and used as a mobile lab for a coal sampling company and was always meant for movement as needed. A few were sent to Mongolia and I supplied the Clearvues needed for the labs both here and in Mongolia.

    Just out of interest, I know it doesn't help you Matt, I was recently quoted $120k for this

    Complete with engineering certificates.
    Side loaders will easily move your containers. We used to get 40 footers packed tight with steel light poles and outreaches. The only way they could fit everything in was to use soft top containers with a big tarp secured in place prior to loading on the ship. Don't know exactly what they weighed but it must have been close to 20T. Max for a 40' is 22T I think.
    Those were the droids I was looking for.

    The irony is that a 20' container can be loaded, theoretically at least, to a heavier weight! The tare and gross weights are usually on the outside of the containers, but I have painted over mine. The first of these links is US so there may be some differences and I assume the truck they call a slider is what we call a tilt tray.

    Much depends on the transport and lifting equipment available as to what can be practically loaded. Matt will have to be aware of the cut outs in the side of his containers that the contents do not decide to abandon ship en route. The shed design you posted looked interesting but the cost is a little elevated, along with the two storey 40' containers, for most of us woodworkers. I am thinking that it was a quote for a commercial installation related to work.
