Emergency Shed.

Shipping Container Shed

Shipping Container Shed

Essentially a modified shipping container. Folds out to be a home away from home, complete with power gained from solar panels, a table, chairs and even a radio receiver.

The 3 images show a transition from a hard wearing non-descript box (1) to a 'in motion' phase where the panels and supports swing easily into place (2) to finally a luxurious living space for home or on safari (3).

Thank you for the comments! in response to the roof issue, there is a roof, the solar pannels which unfold from the top are simply flaps on the shipping container. the constrictions of the briefs image size prevented me from posting one of the clearer images, ive linked to one below which shows it more accuratly.

how does this relate to weather. ie.. can rain penetrate the interior, or do you have to close up shed each time it rains? seems like a lot of work just to open up and complete. i know tents alone are difficult to construct. is the shed supposeded to be permanent or temporary? just some thoughts for future reference...

Highly innovative!

I really love it, a great if slightly unusual idea. I wish I had one!
