There are companies, like Seabox below, that alter them to your specification adding windows, doors, interior fittings like shelves, etc. This link is to a fabulous one that shows want can be done. It even has a green roof: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rllayman/6392400403/in/photostream/ There are probably more on YouTube. Cargo containers are used for offices, homes, etc. The US receives huge shipments of goods in them but it's cheaper to sell the containers here than ship them back empty. They are heavy metal, solidly constructed, and secure. Doors at one end or two ends. They can be placed without a construction permit because they are temporary and can even be put on wheels. They can be decorated and camouflaged with greenery, etc. Think morning glory. Most common size is 8' wide, 8.5' tall, 20' or 40' long. Sea Box in NJ makes and sells new and used. All kinds of modifications of the containers — doors windows, shelving, hooks, etc. A 20' box can store 17 bikes with their set up which is very much like a closet with a shelf supporting a rod that holds clothes hangers. Each shelf bracket holds 1000 lbs so by adding more shelves, you can support more bikes. http://www.seabox.com Sharon ---- Sharon Villines Takoma Village Cohousing, Washington DC http://www.takomavillage.org
