    Shipping container shelters are traditionally constructed using two (or more) traditional shipping containers that are used to anchor a larger, fabric dome or metal shed shelter. The shelter is fastened to the roof of the containers and, depending on which size you’ve selected, can be simply bolted on or welded to the top rail securely.
