Unique and sustainable housing in no time – IronWorks is the best in outdoor, remote living experiences
In 60 days’ time anywhere in the U.S., OTMA is transforming high-cubed shipping containers into distinctive, elegant, and secure retreats and lodges. They are being fabricated, constructed, and assembled in some of the country’s most dramatic natural settings for hunters and outdoors enthusiasts. Designs incorporate rustic material selections and carefully detailed finishes to replicate the rich, luxurious ambience of an exclusive lodge with its warm and inviting interiors. The lodge has an entertainment area, separated sleeping quarters, full bath with shower, laundry/storage room, kitchen, a mudroom with wader racks and gun lockers, and much more.
For entertainment, there is a game table, theater seating, and a wood-burning potbelly stove. The stove is a major source of heat but there is also a through-wall heating and cooling system to ensure the lodge can be a year-round venue.
Sleeping quarters are separated by an expansive elevated wood deck finished in the Shou Sugi Ban method for low-maintenance. The deck features a fire pit, festival lights, gas grill, and music speakers.
The sleeping cabin has built-in twin over full bunks with side chair and table, dressing hooks, and trundle storage below the bottom bunk.
There is a rear storage container located behind the sleeping cabin to handle ATVs, boats, decoys, and other hunting essentials. When not being used, because of the nature of the containers, the lodge can be closed where it remains essentially impenetrable.
In pioneering this innovative reuse of shipping containers, Tom Marshall assembled one for himself in the heart of the Arkansas Delta’s waterfowl territory on the historic Black Swamp. The units come in several configurations with upgrades like rooftop skeet and 40 feet duck roost overlooks. Response from the market to this unique outdoor amenity has been immediate, positive, and enthusiastic.
OTMA has completed IronWorks projects in Tennessee, Arkansas, Missisippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, California, Texas and Alabama.
