I think there is a place called simple box in ellensburg also.  I know at pac van it wasn't much more to go to a 40 foot container and with barn doors on both ends it gives me lots of options.

Is that taller than a normal container?

I set mine on some 5"x8"x20" concrete blocks.  8"x20" foot print and 5" tall. Right under each corner.  In my area you are required to have them off of the ground so that the water can run under it and absorb into the ground evenly or something like that.

I layed 12" of 5" minus rock for drainage underneath the containers may set them on railroad ties partially set into the rock. Concrete blocks may be easier. High cube is 9 1/2' high verses 8'
