Shipping containers for barrel aging

I don't have an issue with barrel storage currently but down the road I can see it as an issue. Does anyone currently use outdoor shipping containers for barrel storage/aging? The are cheap and easy to obtain/install. I can think of a slew of questions such as security, insurance bonding, HVAC/ventilation, etc, etc. But they all seem addressable. Anyone doing this (legitimately)?

Hey,

Call Dan at Garrison brothers. He was doing that for a while and had great success. He'll have all your answers.

Cheers,

Any luck? I would think the TTB would take issue in the containers being built to be transportable. Ventilation would be a simple screen window (small) or just open drier vent

I'm pretty sure the last time I was up at that big NY State/Hudson Valley craft distiller, they were storing barrels in containers on their property as well.
