Nevada Container / Building Construction 
Picking up container from Jim's house. It's an oddball. It started life in 2011 as a 9.5' tall, 20' long container. Which lead to its early demise. Apparently it got crashed in a bridge. One end was destroyed. I bought it as 18' long and had to cut another couple of feet off in order to make it somewhat square.
