    Thanks, Scott
    We are going to try and squeeze them together in the back right leaving a small corridor on the left for toilet and shower, putting them out of the open shop area for privacy.
    It will be close, not totally sure we will have the space. I assume pad will be level with blocks.

    thats gonna take 24' 6" wide to put the 3 of them next to each other.... with ZERO space in between.. PLUS your wall thickness on both sides of the building.

    if your pad is 30' wide you can pull off a narrow room/corridor... but if its not? then its gonna be really tight.

    You can do it... but tight is the word.

    Walls take up 8" around or 16" total. Just have to try it and see, prepared to make a change in plans is necessary. I would like as close to 5' (gap) as I can get, but can go down to 4', but that is minimum.

    Can you put one on top of another one? Your ceiling is probably not tall enough, but that would save a lot of floor space.

    12 foot center, plus with my injuries, I doubt I would be happy carrying heavy items up and down steps. I could drop back to 2 containers or re-arrange the setup if push come to shove.
    Anyway, heavy rain is coming it will be a few days before any new happens.

    There will always be things that are out of our control. You can only do what you can when you can and a project such as this is a great reminder of that. Now if that rain is the only thing bothering you just pack it up and send it to me. We haven't had any to speak of in near a month. I hope all goes well and you soon get to see the end in sight.

    BS,

    quick math says your gonna have right at 4'... STILL thats plenty wide enough for a bathroom in a shop...

    cause if your going DOWN that length to set your stuff up? you can go full size shower on the wall.. toilet, sink & still have tons of room longways. :-)

    if you were wanting to go across that space? then it might be tight. doable but tight!

    so stay positive! this is gonna be an awesome space/shop!

    really looking forward to you getting those in place, cause im gonna USE IT when showing my wife about adding on to mine.

    Just a rough sketch showing three (3) containers vs two (2). I think you can see why I would like the toilet and shower in that back corridor as they
    need privacy and could easily be closed off from the open shop space.

    That looks like a good plan Buckshot. Just a thought but it might be a good use of space, if it is wide enough, to turn the shower and put it in the back corner. I can see where having the sink just outside of the bathroom would be a good idea especially if you use a large rectangular laundry room style sink or a large sink in a counter to give you work area and storage. Is the outside width of the storage containers 8ft or is that the inside width? If it is the inside width you may end up with a very tight corridor.

    Outside width of containers is 8'. I believe we will likely turned the shower, as you mentioned, and put it in back corner. I wanted sink where I could easy get to it in
    open area of shop. Be using it for many things, plus likely set up small kitchen/table area to use out there. Surprised so many of the utility sinks now are plastic, I
    believe I found a decent stainless steel one with side drain platform I might order.
