Hello there and happy middle of the week… YOU’RE HALF WAY THERE!
This is Ryan tagging a post in right at the buzzer (11:45pm) regarding our small containers and some ideas about how we can utilize our space in the most efficient way.
Given that our shipping containers will be 8 ft wide ( 7′ 10.5″ with internal walls/insulation), our bathrooms and bedrooms will be rather tight spaces. After quite a bit of research I found some cool space saving ideas…
Washer machine above the toilet? Cool idea it seems… might work in other countries for gray water flushing power. Wish it would here as well. Maybe some day.
We love the steel on steel idea… or copper on steel. Pretty awesome. Wet-room bathroom… I must say… I really wish we could afford to put one of these in as our guest bathroom. Our engineer told us it would cost a lot to make the drain for the room and make it water-tight.
We were also thinking about putting our washer and drier in the bathroom. After speaking it over with a few people it seems re-sale value would be decreased if we put these in the bathroom? Such a shame as they would be very cool in there and space saving as well.
Some hang on the outside of walls and some slide inside of walls when they open. Either way they allow you to utilize an entire swinging open door span worth of space and neither of them are difficult to install.
Given the strength of our containers… a hanging bed might be a clever idea. We could have one hanging in the bedrooms and use the underside for storage space possibly?
Another few bedrooms in small spaces ideas:
Anyone have any other great space saving ideas? Links to cool DIY ones would be awesome!
Here is a hint for you regarding the next type of D-Construction I will be assisting in:
Thanks in advance for your knowledge and goodnight!
