Posted by Paige Welsh on Wed, Dec 06, 2017 @ 09:15 AM

It was crunch time for Big House Sound (BHS), a company that installs high-end sound systems for large events.

The Container Bar made from Shipping Containers

Posted by Natalie Boykin on Tue, Mar 15, 2011 @ 11:11 AM

I've heard this idea being tossed around a lot over the years here in Austin, Texas, but to see it finally coming to fruition is awesome!  Living in central Texas we have ten months of summer and only two months of winter so designing a bar completely out of shipping containers is such a fantastic idea.  We love being outdoors.  Our most popular bars and restaurants have patios or rooftop decks to enjoy the weather.  The way they have laid out these shipping containers has given them a lot of versatility; different rooms could mean different themes.  Read the entire article for details.
