Think big, start small

20 ft should do it

For decades the humble 20 ft shipping container has tempted us to transform it into our personal shelter. By incorporating practical amenities within its go-anywhere portability, container conversions are a great idea.

But with a scarcity of quality readymade units available, gaining a foothold into container living can be difficult to achieve.

With our plans, building a container studio can become a reality. Developed over five years, we’ve packaged every positive application of container conversion into a single go-to resource. And we called this system FORGE.

So if you’re seeking self-sufficiency in a unique environment, or have aspirations to grow bigger in the future, here’s your 20 ft stepping stone.

Personal

Like you

We all need our own space sometimes. What better way to achieve it than by building your own studio to look and feel just the way you want it.

Within its compact footprint there’s room for peaceful seclusion, and enough space to share with friends and family as well.

However you do it, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing it’s no longer just another container – it’s you.

For home

Or work

Work or play: the choice is yours. With 140ft2 to play around with, you can install a workbench, an office desk, or both.

The open-plan layout and simple design ensures you can readily incorporate services and utilities without compromising your comfort.

Because everyone deserves their own space, how and where they want it.

Self-sufficient

Simple

Self-sufficiency means freedom. Enjoy the modern comforts of home a hundred miles away – or simply camp in your own backyard.

Forge was designed so that you can incorporate the services and facilities that work for you. Whether you need a washroom or a kitchen, or both, you won’t have to go without.

One space

Or two

Modern sliding door technology ensures you get the spaces you want – and as your needs change, so can your studio.

With our system, multiple options for that extra sleeping space, office set-up or washroom are just a sliding door away.

Build it the way you like it.

On the road again

Load up, ship out

There’s a lot to be said for portability, and containers were made to travel! With the ability to slip down your driveway, down the road, or across the Atlantic, there’s no problem getting it where it’s needed.

Just load it up, and ship it out.
