Container “Machine Shed” Replaced Collapsed Hoop Building
He started with two locking 20-ft. shipping containers that he bought from a container reseller. Used containers generally sell for $1,500 to $3,500 apiece, depending on location.
Koch planned to run trusses between the two containers but he needed more clearance to store his New Holland baler, Oliver tractors, and other equipment underneath.
So he built up the roofs on each of the containers about 3 ft. and set the trusses on top of those. The benefit of the raised sides is that it provides more storage on top of the containers.
“I’ve got lots of storage now and it should never fall down,” says Koch. “I designed it so I can add sliding doors later to either end.”
