Default Shipping container bunkhouse build

40ft high cube going to my fishing camp in Louisiana. Kicking around the idea of having my crew knock a few more of these out to sell possibly. Spray foam insulated one trip 40ft container. Fully customizable

Looking good so far. That spray foam should insulate it well.

Depends on container manufacturer. You have multiple options. And in some cases as in my container above the floor was not treated with chemicals hazardous to humans. If your container was treated you can remove the flooring and replace. Or put an epoxy sealant over wood to inhibit fumes.

Here is our 40 foot container. We put in a large shower which makes a big difference in my opinion. They lock up tight and keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. m.

Wow! Those are great, might have to start looking into that instead of buying another camper for the deer lease. Our old one is getting too small. Would also be interested in a rough finish coast estimate, as every project I do ends up costing way more than I anticipated!

Heath, how did you do your walls? Did y'all insulate and then spray some sort of paint or texture over that? Looks cool, trying to figure out how y'all did it, because Mexdeer19 and I are gonna do another one soon.

Spray foam insulation and then painted it.

We just framed 2x4 walls and insulated with R19. Plenty easy to heat and cool.

Was worried the box would flex while unloading loading and on the journey from Texas to Louisiana. It Made it to the bowfishing camp in Louisiana all in one piece no issues . Will be connecting water/electric this week. Getting it up on my pad was another story in itself. One mini hoe one dozer and 1 big skid steer later.

I’ll get some pictures of the finished product after my old lady decorates it.

After all I’m $27,000 in this box, material and labor was near cost as I have a home builder in the family.
The ride from Tx to Louisiana was $2000


There were several corners that could have been cut to make it cheaper.

Spray foam closed cell 3” on ceiling and 2” on walls was $2800 could’ve done something much cheaper but would not have been as good in case of flood for us

The ship lap look walls inside are hardi board instead of wood again to combat rot/mold in case of flood.

The ceiling galvalume.

We Also built this unit out of a New 1 trip container about double the cost of a more used box

My main goal was to make it somewhat water “resistant”

my property here floods and being back in business ready to operate charters quickly was one of the main goals with this box.

Bottom line in my opinion there are much cheaper ways to build a bunkhouse/camp

Given the severe weather and isolated location of final destination this was our best option.

Overall We are happy with the outcome and think it will be a great place for our customers to sleep.
