     Many owner-builders have indicated the need for on-site storage to protect tools and materials during construction or to store material bargains acquired beforehand. One O-B found out that stolen lumber was not covered by the course of construction insurance he carried on his project. To be covered it had to be under lock and key.

     Jeff R. solved the storage problem in two steps: “I rented some space from a neighbor to my property for very little money that allows us to keep some of our bargains in storage until I need them. Then, I will get an old tractor-trailer for $1,000 and up. There are always trailers that people have that are not in use, maybe you could rent one, and build up the sides to hold stuff. I will find a friend with a CDL license and pay him a hundred and fifty bucks to haul it up there to my site. They are 9 feet wide by 40 feet plus, and 8 feet plus tall. Much cheaper than to build an outbuilding that I would have to pay taxes on. When I’m done with the trailer, I can sell it for a small loss. Put lights and receptacles on the side, and put a table saw in there. CNP (the power company) wanted there to be a structure before they put power in, but I put in a pedestal, very elaborate, and they had to run power to it. I put underground telephone to the house, and pulled a lot of extra back to the trailer for phone service.”

     Dick K. told me the same thing about a shipping container: “Many companies have these sitting around, and will rent or sell it to you. You can rent a 20-footer for $75 a month or a 40-footer for $125. Just rent until your garage is finished. Just rent for part of the time until your garage is lockable. Or you can buy a 20-footer for $1,400 or a 40-footer for $1,900. (You could put a desk and telephone wire in there, too.) Use, and sell at the end. Just look in Yellow Pages under storage.”

     Now companies like PODS and others advertise on-site rental construction storage containers on national TV.
