Shipping container garden rooms are versatile and can work in almost all backyards.

It could be used as a meditation room, away from the hustle and bustle of the main house (ideal for moms!); garden offices, or consultation rooms for those who run their businesses from home.

There are countless ways to use shipping containers in your garden. Here are some ideas for you:

Office in your garden

If you have a job that requires a level of confidentiality, this option might be great for you. Lawyers and therapists alike could benefit from having a space separate from their homes and parents too, who just need to separate from the family during working hours.

Garden gym

The idea of working out outside makes the act that much more interesting. With winter just around the corner, it helps to have a little bit of an indoor/outdoor setup, that still gives you the feeling of being outside while protecting you from the elements.

Yoga and/or meditation room

Creating a meditation space in your garden is perfect to get your head off your daily worries. Being surrounded by nature might help you really tap in and get a great start to your day. A shipping container could be perfect as you can go for as many plants, pillows, incense, or decor as you want or you can keep it minimal – it’s all up to you.
