Re: Camp from a Shipping Container
When I was a kid, it was popular to use an old Caboose.
I don't know how they got the caboose from the railroad yard to the woods, but I bet it would cost more to haul it than what it would be worth.
Last winter would be a good example.
There were days when it was -20 below zero Fahrenheit here.
When it warmed up to Zero (0) degrees, it was like a heat wave. Certain things to consider, no heat beneath the floor, no insulation in the ceiling or walls, not a lot of structure designed to be removed - windows and doors.
I could probably build a cabin 12 x 24 with provisions for additions - when you got more money down the road, for somewhere in the neighborhood of about $16,000 if you had a backhoe and was willing to do most of the work!
