Okay. Okay. I am back on the virtues of backyard offices and shipping containers. The idea intrigues me for the simple thought that it might be possible for lawyers to create simple offices from which to operate their law practices, on land that they already own, such as to eliminate rent or other debt service.
I use a room in my home, that I have equipped to operate efficiently as a law office. However, some people want a degree of separation from their home, and some people have concerns about clients visiting.
According to Jetson Green, Karl Wanaselja and his wife and business partner, Cate Leger, of Berkley, California purchased one shipping container for $1,800.00 and with some effort transformed it into a workable architect's office behind their home. Their shipping container was already insulated and designed to prevent thermal bridging between the interior and exterior.
It is food for thought for those lawyers wishing to downshift and still build and maintain an outside office.
