repurposedSMARTS...Mini Storage Units.   "Damon, I saw this outside Belle Fourche, SD and thought of you guys and the great work you're doing.  A guy cut big oil storage tanks in half and cut out doors on the ends.  Saw this mini storage set-up using them, and I also saw these on several farms around the area for storage." - Tim Schuh   Hey, real estate investors, imagine the return on investment when your building costs are so low!  We love resourceful, enterprising folks.  We bet that mini storage owner was a "Millionaire Next Door"...a classic book if you haven't read it.  (NOTE: Most would have simply, and sadly, cut these tanks up for scrap metal.  Certainly, this resourceful entrepreneur found a much higher and better use for these tanks!)
