Is it possible to build for a reasonable amount, a Faraday cage to shield something small like a generator or ATV?
Would it stop the damage from an EMP? Will a ship type container work?

I'm not an expert, but if you can seal the gaps in the doorway with metal and still e able to open it up and close. It should work. If your welding skills are up to the task you could weld up a small garage type container out of corrugated metal pannels.

do you plan on using it regularly?
does the ATV have an ECU?

My first though would be a shipping container with aluminium tape over the hinges, a wire mesh would work, but you'd have to ensure that the gaps are less than the wavelength.

A normal garden shed should work...but I do not know if the concrete would block electromagnetic radiation. It stops other radiation though

I hear a bag of chips will get it done.
