As more and more businesses and individuals are discovering, steel shipping containers can be used for more than just cargo transport. With a little imagination and the right design/build expertise, used containers can be re-purposed for just about anything, from a multi-story home to a mobile bar. And these amazing transformations can take place at a lower cost and a much quicker pace than most conventional building methods. Plus, you just can’t beat the strength and durability of corrugated steel.
