Store Construction

Shipping Container Construction of Shop

Situated on the west side of Page AZ, Lake Powell Paddleboards container structure spans approximately 960 square feet. We built our shop out of recycled shipping containers.

We personally drove to Long Beach CA and towed the containers one at a time the 550 miles to Page, AZ. We picked up the pallet wood in Phoenix and the barn wood in Denver, CO.

Completely constructed of three 40 foot shipping containers. Each cube is a steel-framed structure that measures 320 square feet and has been cut and welded into a one-of-a-kind retail space so they will never end up in a landfill.20150712_174512

It took us 14 months to complete the structure. It is now one of the landmarks of Page.
