I'd love to build my own, except I have 7 left thumbs, and zero knowledge on how to do this. When I bought my building I bought a DIY encyclopedia and went to two Lowes classes so I can now make minor repairs. Today, for example, I closed down my swamp coolers and fired up my furnace.- something I paid a guy $70 to do last year. I'm playing with the idea of buying a small kit off Amazon and seeing how badly I mangle it, but I know what I know, and more importantly- I know what I don't know and this is definitely something I know not to attempt.

I can get a 8X40 shipping container for under $4,000 but the truck needed to deliver it would not fit down my alley. .



Can a crane reach back in there and lower it?
Fair is fair, if unprovable claims are insisted to be true, one should be able to use unprovable methods of debunking.

I was told that was a possibility but never looked into it. I imagine i'd have to pay travel time and all of that but it might be something to consider. The shed had to be delivered in two pieces and assembled on site so the crane never came up.
Arizona is inching towards another complete lockdown so I think I may as well wait.
I'd like to just put up a big tent but whatever I build has to be rated for 95 MPH winds.

Another possibility to save money on that sort of thing is to see if a local school needs a project to build part of it. Perhaps that sort of thing is only open to family of students I donít know, I remember in high school Ag class we built at least one ice fish house and at least one utility shed as a class.

Looks like renting a John Deer tractor tops out at $200 if that is in any way an option.

A quick internet check indicates the closest place to rent a crane would be Tucson, which is roughly a hundred miles away.
I can only imagine what they would want to bring it to Bisbee.

I don't have Superman's phone number. So that's out.

Have the shipping container cut longwise with a torch, then weld it back together once the two pieces inside.
