« Part 14: I Made a Hole! Part 15 of The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can series Part 16: More Progress on the Insullation and walls »

Well I finally got some pictures from inside the can. Being the cheapskate that I am, found a factory refurbished digital camera to take my pictures. Rather then getting the camera I previously told you about at Big Lots. Hey! I save $10 even with shipping from tigerdirect.com.

So, without dragging this on forever, here are the latest photos from outside and inside the can.


As you can see this is the outside, which is soon to be painted a lighter or reflective color to help reflect radiant heat.


This is the vent I told you about before from the outside.


This is the same vent but from the inside.


Informational label on the door of the can.


This is one half of the doors open, exposing some of the current mess.


Welcome to the mess.


This is one sheet of OSB. It is not attached to the wall yet. I will have to attach some 2X3’s to the walls as studs to attach the OSB.


This is the same wall, but showing the insulation on the other half of the wall and where soon another sheet of OSB will be attached.


I am sure you can tell what this is.


This is just my truck. I love my truck. That is my dog Diablo looking at me like I am nuts in the background on the left.

OH! I almost forgot. The next picture is of the patch that I have told you about before in the ceiling, where I may install the vent.

So. I hope this provides a better picture (pun intended) of my can (workshop). I really need to get the OSB up because I need the cabinets back up and I have some other things I need to hang up to get them out of the way.

Take care!
That is all for now from the man in the can!

Great to see pictures of your shop, I have been wondering what it looked like!

I know someone who did the same thing. His brother is a truck driver and brought him 2 of these cans. Put them side by side, cut out one wall of each and then welded then together.

He is a potter and this was worked out great for him. Wonderful use for these. I understand they have made housing out of them also.

Great idea for a workshop. Looks like you have it ‘ship shape’, sorry about the pun. LOL.
