In our September 2012 "Open House" issue, we covered the renovated airstream of Austin, Texas's Stubb's. With the help of designer Burton Baldridge, the renowned concert venue received a new green room in which their performers can kick back and relax before a set or wind down afterward. As a complement to the story, we've rounded up seven of our favorite Airstream flips and facelifts.
