A few years back, we built a container bar for Collective Retreats and we’re just so tickled every time we see it in a write up. 📰
It’s one of our favorite designs and the folks at Collective Retreats have made it their own.
Has anyone been there?

Back when we first started entertaining the idea of a cabin, I had always dreamed of a tiny retro A-Frame, and Adam wanted to convert a shipping container into a tiny modern cabin. Both were so different and cool. In the end we found our A-Frame, but that idea of the shipping container never left our minds.
After renovating for a while, we knew we wanted some kind of screen porch/three seasons room addition off the back. Then the big, too good to be true, idea was born! We reached out to @containersup , who creates so many cool pop up container bars around the greater Milwaukee area, to see what they thought. Lo and behold, they fully embraced our idea, which made this whole crazy thing seem actually attainable!

Fast forward a year, and here we are. We married the A-Frame and shipping container into this wonderful architectural juxtaposition. I have to admit that at first I didn't at all think this big insane idea would work, it took so much planning and stars aligning and then sheer terror as we watched it get dropped into place - would it all actually work?!

It totally did, and while there's still lots of work to be done (like a rooftop deck! What!?) It's so exciting to see a plan come into fruition, and to find comfort in knowing that what you thought *may* be cool in your head, IS actually cool in real life. It's this totally quirky and fun out-of-the-box idea that we were actually able to pull off, and needless to say, we're pretty pumped about it. 🎉

Check it out! https://www.marriedinmilwaukee.com/w**d-wedding "Yep, w**d weddings are a thing – but they mostly happen in states where cannabis is legal. While Wisconsin has yet legalize ma*****na for full recreational use of THC, h**p and CBD are legal nationwide and can add to the awesomeness of your wedding. So for all of the 420-friendly #MKECouples out there, we brought together an amazing group of wedding vendors (see list at bottom of article) and did a cannabis wedding photo shoot! All CBD and h**p items appearing in this shoot were legally obtained in the state of Wisconsin from CBD Therapeutics of Wisconsin.
