Those confused me!

For those of you who like conexes, InSoFast sells kits with insulation, siding, flooring, and ceiling. They have foam panels specifically designed for shipping containers!

I cannot find a good video that shows off everything. Bad marketing!

If you are trying to reduce thermal bridging you can just go with a wall with 2x6 sills and staggered 2x4s 16 on center. Spray foam the interior cavity or net and use blown in cellulose.

No need for special studs with dowels and foam.

Bingo...

Disagree. The staggered studs would be 32"O.C. on each side. 48" sheet materials would have unsupported edges.

12"O.C. and each sheet has supported edges and one stud in the middle.

Huh...???

0”-16-32-48-0-16-32-48” outer wall studs

0”-8-0-16-32-48-0-16-32-48” inner wall studs

Inner and outer wall studs are offset 8” from one another. You just need to start with a 8” piece of wall board or sheathing, then full sheets.

Top and bottom 6” wall plates and corners will not however have a thermal break.

Door - window headers and openings can be built with a thermal break.


This is a far better and cheaper way of achieving 90% of the benefit of a Tstud thermally broken wall. Tstud’s cost approximately $2.50 pr. ft. for a 2x3-1/2” stud or $20 per stud and have limited availability.

Use 2x8 instead of a 2x6 for added insulation depth for the win...!!!

Hmmm. I was wrong (once) before. I think I meant 24"O.C.

It means less wood but also less bearing.

Maybe 2x8 plates and 2x6 on one or both sides?

For some reason it is taking me a ridiculous amount of time to diagram the walls for my 4x8 tiny office. Since things weren't completely even, I spread them out, slightly less than 12/24" on-center, but as you pointed out, I would not be able to attach the siding.

If it's 8x8 or some multiple, lay the 4x8 sheets horizontally. You can find Aluminum H-clips to join free edges.

I planned on using similar siding to the house and shed, which is vertical, but I plan on the sides only being 6', and installing the drywall sideways.

I do not have any idea why this took me so long. I thought that I would park the trailer with the short end facing the house, so it would look like the aforementioned glorified outhouse or perhaps this:A T.A.R.D.I.S. would be far too cool for the Ancient One.

I want this as simple as possible, but as I mentioned, eight-foot walls, a peaked roof, and wheels would make this at least twelve feet tall, with half of that showing over our fence, and the lady over the back fence is grumpy.

Six-foot side walls would have an eight-foot peak and as much vertical space as I need. What would I do with more than that? I do not plan on sleeping here and a sleeping loft in a building this small would not make any sense.

58" x 96", 48" x 86" on the inside. A twin XL mattress is 38" x 80". Let's say that I have a hinged platform attached to the wall that rests on 2x4s screwed to all four walls.

I would need to open the door and step into the doorway to use the platform, which means that I could have a desk and room for one tough box.

My twin XL mattress isn't that big, but having it and the platform waste precious space while working at my desk...



I love how the door is one-third of the wall!

So, I could have a desk on one side, and 28" x 48" of storage on the other, with the door swinging into storage.

Technically I need to diagram the roof, right? Roofs are important, yes?
