Funny to come here and see this Ive been thinking along these same lines, Looks pretty good. I found a pole barn kit for around $3500 for a 30' x 50' complete package and its makin me drift away from the original plan I will have to keep an eye on this build maybe you will sell me on the ideal.

I like !!

How did you mount the lumber to the storage container and seal it?

Yes it was great for me. However just the container is $3500.00. I did upgrade on the metal and the rafters and lumber. I mounted brackets on the container and sealed with a weather stripping and haven't had a leak. The over all size is 24x40. Total cost with me doing some of the labor and paying for help was about $8500. I could have gone cheaper on the container and the rest of the building but I knew I was going to have it for a long time. Good part no TAXES.

I had a couple 40' containers priced out around here and I don't think they was up that high in price around here anyhow, Have you got any pics with more progress? Id like to see this once finished up.
