First, as everyone knows, I work from home. But, I hear from people all of the time who say I just do not have the space or the privacy to do this.
Second, although I do not need to meet with clients other than online, over the phone or at the courthouse, I hear from lawyers that say they need a space to meet with their clients. This is perfect either as an adjunct to your home or at a location near your home.
Third, I appreciate cargotecture or the idea of adding space using recycled shipping containers. I have provided a number of examples over time on this blog.
Sometimes these examples take some reimagining as many examples show where the space is built out as a living space. This works too because (1) an increase in living space can free up work space in your house, and (2) shipping containers are just boxes that can be finished out any way you want, and placed any where you want.
For means of more inspiration on the subject comes the Sunset‘s Idea House, or Cargotecture. An ultra-modern small space of only 192 square-feet (this one can actually sleep fourt), it is solar powered. The 24' shipping container was designed and fabricated by Seattle-based HyBrid, it sell for a base price of $59,500. You can view a lot of pictures of its installation at their website HERE.
