Pattys Day Festival

A little early for St. Patty’s Day, but here’s a 60×220 Century Tent we installed yesterday down south of Chicago. Installing this on snow and ice in 10 degree weather doesn’t help…

Cool down

A/C isn’t just for homes, but tents can have it too. Here’s an example with a corporate event we did last week with full air-conditioning. Of course you have to put doors on the tent so the cool air doesn’t escape!

Wedding Elegance

We can really transform our tents into elegant and classy venues. This is one example of how a full tent fabric liner can transform the tent. We add some chandeliers to really finish off the look. Thank you to Photography By Lauryn!

Nike Product Launch – Mag Mile

A 4AM install downtown Chicago in the dead of winter during a snowstorm, that’s how we roll. A little chilly, but it all went off smoothly. 40×60 Navi Trac Frame Tent, walls, doors, lighting. These pics were taken after our tent install while all the other vendors were coming in. We’re still waiting on photos from the actual event, and we’ll post if we get them from the photographer.

Yes, that is a 7′ wall of ice in the foreground etched with Nike logos..

Patios

We really like to tent over restaurant patios. Here’s one we finished today in Oak Brook. If you do it right, the added space really extends the entertaining area. The restaurant now has the ability to book twice as many events or events double the size, especially when this patio would have been useless in the winter…

Glow Tables and Lanterns

Corporate Event in Wheeling, IL. Turned out looking spectacular; 60×90 Century Tent with full walls, heating, and glass doors. We finished it off with Chinese Lanterns hung throughout the entire middle of the tent and some purple color splash.

What a nice day at the farm

We do farm events a lot. This one is pretty local with a farm that we work at quite often. Walls, French doors, and air-conditioning top it off.

After the great flood…

I don’t know how many visitors we get from different regions around the United States, but as most of you know we were pretty much under water last week. I have never seen so much rain. So below was a pic from Thursday….

And below was a pic from Friday…

So after the great flood came bitter cold temps, howling winds, and about 1/4 inch of snow. Yes, that’s ice on top of the tent.

And here was a pic from Sunday. 63 degrees and sunny. We put up this clear top tent with clear walls for a memorial event. Moral of the story…you can’t predict the weather in Chicago, so get a tent!

Sizzling

We are using about 500 lbs of propane a day to heat this small 900 sq. foot tent from 8am-11pm everday. The customer wants it to stay a constant 75 degrees, and with the outside temp at 10 we’re definitely burning through the gas. Think of it as about 25 of those small tanks that you use on your outdoor grill…

The heaters actually don’t “use” all of the propane, but they need a large supply to draw from or they will shut down or start blowing cool air.

Most customers don’t know the ins and outs of tent heating, BTU’s, and propane usage. Give us a call and we’ll give you a quick lesson!
