Detroit Shipping Company is a 10,000 square foot structure constructed using 21 refurbished shipping containers. The goal was to take something seasoned and well-traveled and give it a new life. A bit of a metaphor for the city. The structure has 19 40' containers, 3 20' containers. There are 88 cuts in the containers, rimmed by over 19 tons of steel. The building is two levels, half indoor, and half outdoor.

Building designed by Independent Design Architects, principle Dominic Walbridge, who has been working on the project with us since it was just a casual conversation about dropping two containers in a field, throwing down some picnic tables and calling it a beer garden. He's also our friend and a pretty good guy.
