Copia was an idea that started 3 years ago while scrolling around on a popular social website when I came across a picture of a used shipping container that someone had converted into an amazing living space. I was amazed at what they had achieved and I became obsessed with used container conversions and the endless possibilities all while doing my little bit to recycle. I always knew that I would like to do something on our family farm and when I sold my business in 2015 I decided to take the leap and start my own container conversion project.
Geared with a couple of pictures from the internet and vague idea of how I wanted the end product to look we started the project. As with most building/construction projects, what was supposed to take 2 months turned into a 4 month project with a lot of blood, sweat and tears being shed by every one involved! Slowly but surely as the project went on I became more and more sure of how I wanted the end result to look and it is with great pleasure and immense pride that I can say that I have achieved exactly what I set out to do!
Copia was the name of my fathers first farm which means 'abundance' in Latin and I could not think of a more fitting name or word for the business as I have been blessed with abundance in my life and I would like our guest to experience at least a taste of it when they stay in our beautiful and peaceful converted container!
I truly hope that when you stay at Copia you will relax and unwind while taking in beauty and peacefulness that Copia has to offer.
