Global Portable Buildings – Ultimate 8′ x 40′

Some people daydream of sunshine and pretty flowers, fame and fortune, or long walks along the beach and candle-lit dinners. I’ve been daydreaming of living in a shipping container for the past ten years.

Now that I’ve got the property, it’s just a matter of saving up enough cash to buy the damn thing. Easier said than done. These aren’t exactly “cheap shelters.” They cost anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000 last time I checked.

For now it remains on the wishlist:


This is our most complete 8′ x 40′ portable building. Standard features include bathroom, kitchen, AC electrical system, telephone/internet connection, 2" rigid insulated finished walls and ceiling, windows, entrance door, finished linoleum/vinyl floor and utility room. Options include include bedroom/office and solar power system. This unit is manufactured from a new, ISO standard steel container and can be quickly transported via standard cargo container ships, cargo planes, trucks or rail.

Rugged and durable, this building is ideal for temporary or permanent living quarters, shelters, portable offices/studios, worker housing, military/police posts, forest/mountain cabins, etc. – adapt your interior usage as needed see list of common uses.

Requires no foundation, no structural assembly and carries a 10 year structural warranty. It also offers great resistance to natural disasters, including resistance to winds up to 100 mph. Delivery of this model is available to all destinations in the USA and worldwide.
