creative containers

ever since i moved into my first house in March, i’ve had countless home improvement ideas.

my favorite?

making a garage & creative studio in my backyard with a few shipping containers.


there’s so much empty, wooded space—which appears to have been unkept for years—that i could easily hire a landscaper to clear it out and level the area, then hire a container company here in KC that specializes in shipping container distribution to bring them out.

from what i’ve seen, they’re about $2,500-$4,000 with no customization.

kansas city approved several ADU laws in late 2022 and it seems like as long as the space is smaller than the primary residence, you can build one.

i can’t do it at the moment because I rent, but the goal is to buy within the next year and I think it could be a replicable idea.
