Our container builds come ready to use out of the box, but some folks would like to add features to their new home or office to make certain spaces more functional. One common request we receive is the application of decking on top of the container with a ladder for access. We first implemented this idea on our Dogwood and Dripping Springs models. Since these models garnered so much success, we have decided to offer this option as an add-on to each of our available models and custom builds alike.
Decking for Your Container
The space above your container is an excellent space to utilize and one of the best ways to do so is with decking atop your container. As you can see in the pictures below, decking and the stairs to accompany can really make a container pop. This also provides a functional gathering space for you and a small group of people. Since the containers we use are all structurally sound, we are able to build on top of your container with ease.
These decking options can be built out in both our 20 ft and 40 ft options. All of our containers can be customized to your specifications, but our standard decking offering you can add to your cart includes the following:
- 10 ft roof deck
- 20 ft roof deck
- 40 ft roof deck
Each of these options includes a staircase for access and will be installed on the rear of the shipping container to make shipping easier.
If you are looking to add a unique aspect to your container home or office, you should consider adding decking to the top. This is a great option for those living somewhere with views as the increased height can completely change your perspective on the area around you.
