Using shipping containers as homes is a new-ish trend in the USA (but also here in the UK, see here), but they could of course also be used as excellent shedworking atmospheres - indeed the All Terrain Cabin is pretty much there already. One of the major names in the living container world is Lot-Ek who have also designed living spaces using recycled airplane fuselages. Above is an example of their work. It's sturdy, it's easily transportable and, while it might be a bit of a squeeze in many back gardens, eye-catching. There's a nice video at inhabitat of the Lot-Ek folk explaining their methods.
