We’re hoping for a 53 foot container for our studio/guest quarters because it would give a bit more room, but we may have to settle for a 45 footer instead, as newer 53s are hard to come by. Either way, we’ll have more room than we currently do for artwork and guests.
We’re in discussions with our developer about the configuration of the studio on the lot (similar to the driveway issue), and it’s basically about whether the studio should be set on the property line or whether it should have a separate entrance for guests. Another rock n roll problem, but we like it on the property line to maximize our yard space and minimize spending on extra doors and pathways. The plans below are based on a 45 foot studio with the front driveway, and things will change again if we use the back drive and a 53 foot container like we want:
It’s amazing how many decisions there are to make when constructing a home. To keep my focus, I’m posting some nice studios I’ve recently come across. The first image below is a tiny container studio, probably just 12 feet long, but it serves a purpose. We’re considering getting a 12 footer down the road for a garden shed.

The images above and below from Jetson Green are really nice. I like the wood siding (although we probably won’t use that on the studio). I really like the pop-out windows below for ventilation, and the slatted awning is an interesting and inexpensive idea.

The little building above was built from found wood, probably from crates. I think it’s really pretty and would work well for a garden shed or a private retreat.
