This is a 10ft shipping container. Good padlock on them and very secure.

To coin a phrase what has that to do with the thread?

Either way I was a tad miffed as I missed out for a matter of pounds

Actually I was along the lines of the thread which was how a structure of some manor could be erected on site. The path of the thread directed towards that subject and I shared an experience.

You really are pedantic and just love belittling newbies don't you? Pretty sure you wouldn't behave the same face to face with anyone else would you?

You can also get 10ft site offices that have lockable windows and door.

I spent a comfortable week in a shipping container at the top of a mountain in the falklands. I wouldnt want one in my wood though.

Blank canvas, 5m L x 2.1m W x2.2m H it has been a stores truck with 2 inches of insulation and white hardboard lining with a door at the rear and window at the drawbar end. Might move the door to the side.
Wheel arches intrude through the floor at each corner, but a few ideas from (worksafe despite the name) http://cabinporn.com/

The trailer is a Brockhouse military 4 wheel trailer with Ackerman steering (pain to reverse with an articulated site dumper).
Rubery Owen made a similar spec trailer. The bodywork is by Marshalls of Cambridge (makers of military ambulance bodies and other types of military box trailers and vehicle bodies).
Mine had been a compartmented stores, although a mobile airfield command unit had been available with one side having shuttered windows all along.
They are steel bodied with about 2 inches of compressed mineral wool insulation and may need some preservation / restoration, but are around a 1/10th of the price of a Shepherd hut. (Mine has had the storage bays removed, leaving a white hardboard interior cladding).
I particularly got this because it is on wheels (in preference to a shipping container). For use on the roads, an appropriate towing vehicle with air brake couplings, or a competent conversion of the brake system / amendment to the plated weight may be necessary.
An Ebay search on Brockhouse will sometimes give a result, but will also return with a few Landrover type army tailers and paratrooper bikes.
Being on wheels, it gives me the option of rapid deployment from my home address / field / elsewhere, depending on the voracity of 'curtain twitchers' - not sure if the camouflage helps...
