These little add-ons impressed us with their ingenious uses of space
This satellite space encourages thoughtful design without distraction. As a designer/fabricator, the owner's workday regularly includes time spent in the office, split by time spent in his shop. Therefore, the immediate location of these two structures makes it easy to jump between projects. The property footprint is small. Between the house, detached garage (which functions as his shop), and room for steel and lumber inventory, the available space for anything else becomes limited. The idea to use a shipping container worked well because of its inherent function to fit into a tight space.
