40ft bar and lounge

This container conversion has been completed for use as a bar and lounge. At 40ft long there's plenty of room on the inside, and the outside is made appealing with bi folding doors, casement windows and wood cladding. The end panel of the container has been replaced with a large polycarbonate window to let in plenty of light. What a perfect place to relax in with a drink or two!
