Weddings and Shipping Containers

This weekend I went in a very last minute trip to Poland for my friends Kat and Konrad’s wedding.  It was a beautiful weekend, the sun was shining and plenty of vodka was consumed!  

 After the wedding reception we all got Taxis to a shipping container bar which was floated on an outlet of the river Vistula. 

 I was really interested by this as it fits really well with my plans for the house.  The bar consisted of three containers welded together.  

 The exterior was left with the original corigated steel of the container.   

 One thing I have been slightly concerned about is the size of the interior of my finished house.  The interior of this bar actually seemed very spacious.  There was a bar, TV area, toilets and a kitchen fitted into the three units.  Outside there are two ramps leading down the bank to access the bar. 

Seeing the interior of this place really helped me visually imagine the amount of space I may have in my finished house.

On my return trip to Dundee I stayed in a Best Western hotel near Victoria, London.  It was a great wee apartment.  I really liked the tiles in the bathroom which seemed to be layered leaves and pebbles that were set in resin.  I really like the effect of this and thought I might be able to do something similar combining laser etching for the walls of my container bathroom.
