Giving the sheer amount of shipping and storage containers’ integral strength, coupled with the fact that they are mass produced means the boxes can be affordably converted to a variety of uses and can provide a solution to various space and storage problems. These are known as container conversions. This board showcases some of our favourite container conversions as modified to suit the specific needs of our clients.
