“Man Cave”, “Manspace”, “Manland” and “Mantuary” are just a few names for the desired retreat men designate in homes across America. Men can
rule these areas as “their space” without offending
the women of the home and their sense of design. Often
these spaces are sacrificed basements, garages, attics or
outbuildings on the property. The space we have in our
home is limited and lacks “extra” square footage. The man
of the house absolutely deserves a space of his own but
do we have to sacrifice the garage housing our cars, the
storage space in our attics and basement or the utility
space outbuildings provide? The answer is NO! There
is another option that is sweeping the nation……shipping
containers converted to man caves. This container conversion trend is not only for “Manspaces.” “She Sheds”
are a desired space for family women used for gardening,
hobbies, and crafting workshops. Another much needed
living space has been a result of Multigenerational households increasing in numbers, needing an in-law-suite.
Shipping containers can provide an additional 172 to 384
square feet of space depending on the size container you
choose. These container conversions are perfect DIYer
projects adding square footage to accommodate for extra
room without sacrificing utilized space in your home.
One of the primary challenges of using metal for func-
tioning home structures is that it’s such a good conductor.
This fact means that the inside of an uninsulated shipping
container is witheringly hot during warmer months and
hypothermia-level cold during the winter. The metal will
also experience condensation when the internal temperature changes rapidly, and this moisture will corrode the
metal. To resolve these issues, InSoFast provides superior
