Industrial-chic shipping containers

Exploring Shipping Container “Industrial-Chic” Décor

If you’ve never heard the term “industrial-chic,” then you may be surprised at everything that falls under this stylistic umbrella-term. It’s used to describe any repurposed industry-centered item or location and industry-reminiscent aesthetics that revolve around raw materials. These can all include:

  • Weathered wood
  • Building systems
  • Exposed brick
  • Industrial lighting fixtures
  • Concrete
  • Old factories
  • Other industrial spaces
  • Industrial-use items

What we like to focus on, however, is shipping container chic. You might have read our last blog, “5 Amazing Storage Container Projects,” and those projects can actually all be considered “industrial-chic,” despite how different they look! The term is so broad, and yet very distinctive, which is a large reason why some companies choose it – to be distinguished.

“Industrial chic” isn’t supposed to look perfectly finished – that’s one of the details that makes it attractive! Shipping containers are about as raw as you can get – the color varies, it might have a few dents in it because it really was used for an industry at some point, and it’s really just a big, metal box.

Here are some examples of places that really lean into the “industrial-chic” style with shipping containers – one of them right here in Louisville!

Let’s See Some Industrial Chic

1. Copper and Kings: Louisville, KY

After their grand opening in October of 2014, Copper and Kings Distillery made itself out to be a staple in Kentucky’s rich history in the distilling business. By offering their guests opportunities for mixology classes, rooftop-bar experiences, and tours of their on-site brandy distillery, where they deviate from Louisville’s bourbon-centered focus, Copper and Kings brings an interactive flare to the restaurant and bar business.

Apart from what they offer in terms of services, Copper and Kings built itself an industry chic-centered aesthetic, featuring stacked shipping containers at the entrance, as restrooms on the grounds, a gift shop, and an informational center, as well. Check out Copper and Kings’ industry chic theme at:

📍1121 E Washington St, Louisville, KY 40206

2. SteelCraft: Long Beach, CA

Preferring the term “urban-chic,” this outdoor community space has long since grown from it’s original first location. Striving to be more than just a place to hang out and eat, the organization makes every effort to be a part of the community through, “outreach, live music, and community events.” They now have three locations, offering vendors of the likes of:

  • Hangry Belly

Their spaces are made completely of repurposed shipping containers, each taken from the shipping industry and designed for a new life as a community vendor.

4. Red Fish Blue Fish: Pensacola, FL

With the same bouncy, festive feeling you get reading Dr. Seuss’ rhymes, Red Fish Blue Fish captures that industrial-chic feeling with reclaimed wood from an old Coca-Cola warehouse and their main operations functioning out of a multi-shipping container building. With a focus on sustainability, Red Fish Blue Fish perfectly encapsulates one of the best parts of the industrial-chic aesthetic – the reuse of already existing materials. Since the industrial trend started with vast, abandoned factory spaces that served as a natural aesthetic in itself. Find this sustainably-made industrial chic restaurant at:

📍5 Via De Luna Dr. B, Pensacola Beach, FL 32561

5. Odette Estate: Napa Valley, CA

Circling back around to California, the Odette Estate’s slogan, “Effortlessly Elegant, Deliberately Bold” is a great way to describe their particular brand of industrial-chic. Using repurposed shipping containers to function as the winemaker’s office, lab, employee break room, and employee restrooms, Odette went a step further and, like Red Fish Blue Fish, drew from the sustainable aspect of industrial-chic with natural-light high and exposed ceilings, recycled plywood flooring, and LED light fixtures.

They certainly go to show that shipping containers can fit in anywhere – we’ve seen them now on beaches, in cities, in the middle of a winery, where doesn’t it fit? Check out this elegantly-styled industrial design at:

📍5998 Silverado Trail, Napa, CA 94558

6. Detroit Shipping Company: Detroit, MI

As a doggedly determined start-up composed of 21 shipping containers that would house the future Detroit Shipping Company, this is another urban-industrial chic hub for food, drink, and good times. Not to mention that in the heart of a car-industry city, industrial-chic isn’t hard to come by.

Containing lots of Michigan favorites and staying pretty local to cater to Detroit residents, the shipping-container compound hold live music, comedy, and other shows in an area that gets a bad rap, proving that industrial-chic doesn’t have to follow the status quo. Find this entertainment hub at:

📍474 Peterboro St, Detroit, MI 48201

Facts about shipping container homes that you should know before you build

Fun Facts about Shipping Container Tiny Homes

Shipping containers are one of those things that have a huge impact on everyday life, but are never really talked about. Considering that they transport half of the sea-bound global goods that make their way from different continents, they’re rarely considered when it comes to consumer trends, since they’re out of sight and out of mind. They’ve been here, though, helping us get goods across the sea since the mid-1950s, but it wasn’t until 1987 that the first patented shipping container home came about.

Since then, they’ve grown in popularity, but are still considered a relative rarity when it comes to permanent living solutions. Since used shipping containers sell for cheaper prices than you’d find for most other pre-built materials, they do seem pretty convenient to use as a foundation to your new living situations. If you’re interested in buying or renting a used shipping container, you can always contact Moon for a quote! If you’re still thinking about it, or perhaps you’re just interested in the concept, here’s 5 fun facts about shipping container homes that you might not have known!

1. You never know what it was used for to ship.

One thing that needs to be taken into account when searching and getting quoted for a used shipping container is the materials that it once shipped. Any container that was used to ship hazardous materials won’t be available for the general public’s use, but in regards to allergies or general cleanliness, you’ll definitely want to double check with your contractor what exactly used to reside within the walls of your potential home.

2. The total cost for building shipping container houses are lower than traditional houses.

This being said, when it comes to living quarters, nothing ever should be cheap. Quality materials that will last are of much higher value than those you can get for a quick buck. Insulation, plumbing, HVAC systems, and the like should not include any cut corners since they play an important role in your everyday life at home. This is why there is a big rift in what you’ll find pricing to be on different sites that specialize in shipping container homes, whether they sell pre-fabricated shipping container homes or only provide information on how to build one. An average that it often used for single-container homes is approximately $30,000 – but again, that’s all dependent on the services and materials you choose to employ in your shipping container home.

3. They’re very versatile.

Taking into account the fact that you can easily have as much space as you want with no limit (except for land space, that is) on the number of shipping containers you can use for your house, the modular nature of these homes is entirely customizable based on your desires and budget. The containers that Moon offer come in 20 foot and 40 foot as well as Hi-Cube dimensions to create any size of house you need.

4. They’re already durable and weatherproof.

With an original job that involves transporting goods across bodies of water, these containers have to be up for the job of protecting that which they’re entrusted with, and since most containers are retired after only a few uses, their integrity stands up to the test. Made from heavy-duty metals such as steel or aluminum and meant to withstand all kinds of weather, sea salt, and conditions, shipping containers are waterproof, fireproof, and sometimes even have earthquake and storm-resistant ratings.

5. In order to build one yourself, you’ll need professional training.

If you’re looking to DIY the entire thing, as we mentioned before, these shipping container homes are only as cheap as the materials and labor allow. If you don’t have professional training in plumbing, metalwork, carpentry, or electrician trades, you’ll want to budget for these services. Too many things can go wrong if they are attempted by a novice or guided by online tutorials, and will only make the house more expensive in the long run. Check out the Container Home Hub’s article, Building a Shipping Container Home in Kentucky – A Complete Guide, for more information about Kentucky shipping container homes.

Used and new storage containers for sale or rent

Choosing a Storage Container: Which One Is For Me?

All storage situation have different storage needs – Moon knows that. In fact, that’s exactly why there’s an option for 20 foot standard, 40 foot standard, 20 foot Hi Cube, and 40 foot Hi Cube storage containers available.

All of our storage containers boast:

  • A highly-monitored structure to maintain integrity and safety
  • Double swing doors at both ends of the container
  • Short or long term rental
  • Location accessibility evaluation
  • Secure lock boxes
  • ISO-Standards for cleanliness, dryness, and security

But which one would be better for your storage needs?

Here’s a few things to consider when making your decision on storage container size.

Use

While it may be one of the more obvious considerations, it’s still a very important one. What will it be used for? Is it workshop storage? Commercial storage? Parts, pieces, delicates, size – it all contributes to the ultimate decision.

If it’s commercial use that the storage container will be used for, ask yourself if the contents will grow. Spare parts and pieces always seem to have a way of multiplying, and if your business if one that finds yourself with an excess of materials that need to be put somewhere, consider opting for a 40 foot container for future materials.

If your storage container will be put towards personal or residential use – for short term storage of items while you deep clean in preparation for a move, or for long term use of seasonal items, make sure you correctly measure how much material you have. Our dimensions allow for plenty of space for most items, but some pieces of furniture may require disassembly if they’re to be put with other big items or bulk boxes.

We also offer a refrigerated option for both 20 and 40 foot containers, with the only difference that the 20 foot is a standard container and the 40 foot is a Hi Cube container. Be sure to take into account that these units offer approximately 2 feet less than the space you would get with an regular container – 17′ 11″ for the 20 foot container and 37′ 11″ for the 40 foot containers – in order to take into consideration the space necessary for the refrigeration equipment.

Dimensions

To avoid any stress about sizes and space, our storage containers have a comprehensive list of dimensions, as listed below.

Dimensions of 20 or 40 foot storage containers

Standard or Hi Cube?

Besides just a 20 and 40 foot size option, Moon also offers the Hi Cube option for both lengths. These containers add an additional foot of height to your storage solution, making any tight spaces just a little easier to breathe in.

Standard containers come in approximate weights of 8,000 lbs. with a 2,694 cubic foot storage capacity for the 40 foot, and 5,000 lbs. with a 1,665 cubic foot capacity for the 20 foot storage container.

This may be changed by negligible amounts from standard to Hi Cube storage containers, but depending on your need, one foot may make all the difference, especially if your contents are fragile and you want some wiggle room.

Space Availability

Speaking of wiggle room, another factor you’ll have to consider is the space you have available for a storage container. These can be delivered and placed on ground level or on a chassis for dock-level access – again, it’s all very dependent on the application your storage container will be serving.

Moon offers a delivery location accessibility evaluation, so that you don’t have to worry, but if you’re in the initial stages of decision-making, our delivery methods for 20 foot storage containers are via a 35 foot flatbed roll-back truck, and our 40 foot storage containers are via a semi-truck with a 40 foot tilt-bed trailer.

Be sure to assure plenty of space for delivery, and call 502-776-2199 for a delivery location accessibility evaluation!

3 Ways You Can Re-purpose A Shipping Container In Kentucky

A cargo shipping container can be used for a variety of purposes besides transportation. Here are a few ways re-purposed cargo containers are used around the world and in Kentucky.

3 Ways You Can Re-purpose Shipping Containers In Kentucky

Living Spaces

People have been making residences out of shipping containers for years. Homes, apartments, and dorms are all creations that you can build or purchase from companies that convert containers. These residences aren’t just mobile and compact. They can have as many features as you want, including full plumbing, bathrooms, air conditioning, heat, rooftops, porches, and more.

Here in Kentucky, there have been many notable shipping container home projects in the past several years. In 2014, Habitat for Humanity started work on one of the first shipping container homes in Kentucky near Elizabethtown.

Plus, back in 2016, there were plans to build a series of container homes in the Schnitzelburg neighborhood in Louisville (the plans were later scrapped, though). You can even stay in a shipping container cabin in Slade near the Red River Gorge through Airbnb.

Restaurants and Office Spaces

In addition, restaurant and other business owners have re-purposed shipping containers for use. Worldwide, there are pop-up shops in London, England and a container city in Cholula, Mexico, just to name two instances.

In Louisville, a few examples have also sprung up recently. Copper & Kings, a brandy distillery in the Butchertown neighborhood, has used several shipping containers for a boutique and visitor’s center. Plus, Royal’s Chicken’s location in Nulu has shipping containers outside for seating.

Most recently, the initial building for a project called Opportunity Corner in Russell has begun to take form in Louisville. The project will provide office spaces to help grow a self-sustaining space for entrepreneurs and other community members. This project follows in a tradition of using mobile offices as workplaces. Construction professionals have long used storage container offices on-site. They provide the advantage of mobility, sturdiness, and flexible work and storage space.

Shipping Container Farming

Lastly, farmers have used shipping containers to produce food. There are a growing number of companies that make shipping containers for agricultural work. Farmers can grow everything from herbs to leafy greens for industries like nutrition and fragrance.

These container farms offer a few key benefits for farmers. They are readily available, compact, cheap up front, and easy to transport. Many farmers are excited about container farms and see them as a way to produce fresh and local food more readily. However, there are some challenges as well. For one, the environment within the containers can be hard to control. In addition, a container that is too small for the number of farm workers may be difficult to move around in. Plus, overhead can become expensive after the initial container build.

It can certainly take a lot of work and money to make a shipping container a living space or business location. But with the right investment, they have the potential to be a sustainable solution. One thing is for sure: interest in re-purposing these containers has increased over the past few years and shows no sign of stopping.

Moon Trailer Leasing offers shipping containers to companies and organizations across Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and Tennessee. Call 502-776-2199 today for a fast and free quote.

Planning for a construction project

8 Ways To Get Organized For A Major Construction Project

Want to stay organized with your construction project?

 

Working on a major construction project isn’t easy. You need to plan and execute every aspect carefully to ensure successful results. It is a project manager’s responsibility to make sure nothing goes wrong during construction. They oversee the project from initial discussions to final handover. If you’re planning for significant work, here are 8 important things you can do to stay organized with your construction project.

 

  1. Establish A Work Breakdown Structure

A Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) is a visual project plan. It includes all sections of the project like deliverables, project schedules, and other information. It provides an excellent overview of a project, helping teams stay on track and be aware of the bigger picture. This also allows teams to determine how delays or issues with one section will impact the rest. A Work Breakdown Structure is one of the first things project managers should work on after a client approves a project.

 

  1. Create A Scope Statement

Scope statements help teams keep the end goals in mind. It can be easy to become lost in the intricate details of a project and forget what a client truly wants. A scope statement includes the hopes and dreams of the client, so your team can always be aware of it. This may just seem like simple planning. However, experienced project managers know it has a big impact on customer satisfaction rates.

 

  1. Develop A Risk-Management Plan

Every construction project includes risks. There’s always a possibility that you may run into budget problems, a delay with materials, poor raw material quality, or team turnover. Therefore, project managers must have contingency plans to help ensure the construction continues on schedule without any major delays. A risk management plan provides key guidelines on how team members should respond to changes. Construction is a long-term fluid project, and details often change. So, a good plan can help people maintain proper flow during projects.

 

  1. Implement A Communication Plan

Project managers are often the bridge between the on-site teams and other stakeholders like clients, company executives, and investors. They need to maintain proper communication with dozens of people at any given time, which is why a good plan is essential. You need to keep open, accessible communication that doesn’t disrupt a project but ensures everyone is on the same page. Establish efficient channels early on in the planning stages and make sure you have emergency communications in place as well. A good plan will help you avoid delays.

 

  1. Set Up Performance Metrics

Setting up performance metrics is a good way to track your team’s efficiency. This is vital for long-term and large-scale construction projects, where teams can quickly lose focus or become overwhelmed. To avoid this, a project manager must identify gaps in performance and implement procedures to help their team.

 

  1. Ensure A Quality Assurance Process

Large construction projects require quality assessments at every stage. Establishing proper control at every stage of a project can help you keep track of overall quality. This helps improve customer satisfaction rates while ensuring the design is sound.

 

  1. Set Up An Efficient Worksite

Your construction team will work best if your worksite is organized, efficient and comfortable. Figuring out traffic flow at the site and ordering equipment like dumpsters, restrooms, showers, and mobile office trailers help your team perform effectively. Experienced companies like Moon Trailer Leasing can help you plan in advance and provide you with the highest quality equipment.

 

  1. Establish Safety Protocols

Construction sites can be risky places. It is essential to establish proper safety protocols before starting work on any construction project. Plan how to respond to emergencies, provide safety training, and make sure everyone has proper safety gear.

 

Thorough planning can help you stay organized with your construction project. For more information about planning and renting or buying equipment, contact Moon Trailer Leasing today at 502-776-2199.

Cargo shipping containers are used to transport more than 90% of the world’s non-bulk container. In fact, in 2012 20.5 million intermodal containers shipped goods in across the world. Shipping containers are built to strict standards. Typically cargo containers are available in two lengths — 20 feet or 40 feet — and two heights — 8 feet 6 inches and 9 feet 6 inches.

Cargo shipping containers typically function just like cardboard boxes or pallets do. They are designed to allow for cargo to be bundled into a larger unit that can easily be transported from Point A to Point B. Shipping containers are easy to handle, move, and stack which allows them to be tightly packed.
