You’ll never guess what this office is made out of (16 photos)

    Thats pretty cool!

    a 3 story office made of paper thin steel…what could possibly go wrong?

    • Superfresh

      They are shipping containers, often stacked 4 or 5 high on the deck of cargo ships.

      They’re much more sturdy than they look.

    Hot in Summer. Cold in Winter.

  • CunningLinguist

    i bet its hot as fuck in the summer. its not exactly paper thin either.

  • Phil

    they can insulate it. i’d like to see inside.

    Being that I am in Iraq now working out of one of those things, it sucks. Its only getting to about 75 degree’s outside but the metal makes the roof over 100 degrees. Combined with a A/C unit that is clearly not designed for my size of “building” that dies, it just cannot cool down a metal box.

    Likewise when it got really cold in Jan. It just could not heat up.

    Thanks Chive for giving me and my soldier’s smiles each and everyday downrange. 1st Post

      Jason…thank you so much for putting your ass (and other various parts) on the line for us. It means the world to me. Truly. I couldn’t do anything I do…raise my kids, breathe free, work, live, any of it…if it weren’t for folks like you doing your job. I know first hand what it takes out of your whole family. Thank you.

      As for the building…yes I did guess what it was made out of. 🙂 Looks like legos. 🙂 It’d be fun to watch…not so much fun to live…apparently. 😦

            Why don’t you go ask your government for all the things Americans have provided for you? We’ll be picking up your head on one side of the road and your body on the other.

              Bull. all those things happened to you and yet you’re sitting around on a frivolous website, with internet and a computer even though you say you have no water or fooda dn half your family is dead? We never did anything against you? Ha! your religion says to behead the infidels *non-muslims*
              Not all american females are uneducated dipshits that don’t know politics or history. Although that’s how you want it.

    classic move……it will soon to rust, just like the business

  • xclusive02

    are those railroad cars?

    • Fuzzybeard2016

      Uh, no. Shipping containers are much smaller than freight cars. Also, shipping containers are designed to interlock; freight cars, not so much…

  • Mark

    They built one of these in Phoenix. used 1 inch of insulating foam on the inside, so probably not too hot.

  • jeff in Australia

    Love the imagination used here… is this called thinking inside the box..?

  • dlq

    wouldnt want to find out my office was made of these during a lightning storm!

  • Irwin109

    Part of our college was made like this…

  • Dingo

  • Gonz

    goodbye cell phone reception, didn’t think of that did you

    FOOD?? Are the current food cotrcatnors being replaced? If so when? Is there any plans to promote sustainability, local produce and suppliers. If food service is changing may I suggest you invite the parents in for a taster lunch to sample to food they will be feeding their children. I would also like to be given an ingredients list of all proposed food items. If not satisfied can a packed lunch be brought into school? Currently at KEQMS packed lunches are not allowed at infant or junior level.
