Was out today visiting a smallholding which had a childrens play area and some farm animals. Very interesting it was. It was on about 6 acres and that looked a fine size for a gettaway place. This one isn’t much use for us as it is located right in the centre of a really bad area and everyone there knows where it is. Day 2 and roast Donkey is on the menu.
The bit that I found most interesting though was the number of containers that they had converted into work areas and stables simply by putting a wooden roof on top with an overhang and then cutting doors into the sides and fitting windows. The windows and doors looked the hardest part as it looked like they had to manually build the frames while the roofing was just placed on top similar to putting a hat on.
Make me think a bit about how useful those container are. It is my belief that they don’t require planning permission either. They are not perfect but I certain can see a use for them if you have some land to put them on. I now have several uses for them. If only they were not so heavy.
