How To Build A Shipping Container Studio

Here's a novel idea that many have dreamed about that was actually brought to fruition. If you've built a studio before, then moved, you know that all the construction you did stays where it's at. A way around this is to build it in a standard size shipping container, which is what Mike Dever did.

A container can be had for around $1500 to $2000, and after the studio is finished, you can take it with you anywhere to move to from then on. It's a little cramped, but still highly usable.

This video gives you a good idea about the various stages of construction. You can also find out more details on building your own studio from my Studio Builders Handbook.

Wow! That turned out nice. I was going to do the same thing recently but shied away from the idea because I thought for sure it would be too cramped. Although, I don't have the carpenter skill or vision that Mike has so my own limitations lead me in another direction. Excellent job, Mike!

As always, thanks for the post, Bobby.

This is a great tutorial! But you make is sound like it's so easy to get your hands on a shipping container, or the space to put the container once your studio has been set up! Haha!
