More cargotecture in our new neighborhood? Yes, please! We just came across this article last night about our favorite neighborhood bar and restaurant, the Moon Tower Inn, and it seems that they are remodeling their outfit with shipping containers! It looks like these people are helping out with the rebuild, which will supposedly include green features such as solar panels and a water collection system. I was just excited about them getting new bathrooms, so this news is pretty terrific.
I’m on the lookout for plans or new construction on their lot. I’m already wondering what the new place will look like. The article said that they were using two shipping containers, so I’m guessing it’s not going to be as large as the cool traveling restaurant below:

Above is a bar in Austin that has either just opened or is just about to, and below is a shipping container project in Germany.

If I know the Moon Tower, though, it’s going to look more like these containers above and below (again in Austin) with counter service and outdoor seating.

We joked last night that we deserve free beer and hot dogs for life, as we have to guess that the seed of this remodel was planted by us talking about our own construction just about three blocks down the street! Whatever, we just can’t wait to see what comes of this!
