Default Ultimate home brewery

Sorry to go this route, but the search function is not working at the moment.
I am interested in what (or if) the consensus is on the ultimate home brewery set up is. I am aware of some of the options, such as RIMS, HERMS, etc. What I am thinking is the balance of simplicity/consistancy, and reasonable cost to the average home brewer. I do know this is a "utopian society" kind of question, but if you had say 2 or 3 thousand to spend exclusivley on your brewing operation, what would it be?

For me the ideal brewery not only includes a cool brew stand. It also would include nice conical fermenters on wheels and a cooler that would be divided so each fermenter could be controlled in it's own chamber. I would have computer controlled fermentation temperatures for ales and lagers.

For me, a 12' x 16' brew house in the back yard. I can build the walk-in cooler and add a freezer. This will give me all the storage I could ever want, plus a place to hide from the free-loaders.

This is about to be implemented.

Seeing as how I am trapped in my little apartment kitchen here are the things I dream about for when I own a house:

1. Chest Freezer (or 2) for fermentation chamber and storage
2. Brew stand for a gravity fed operation (would ideally have 3 burners) with drilled ss kettles
3. 2 SS conical fermenters
4. Storage Storage Storage

I know it doesn't sound like much, but given my current constraints I would kill for the set-ups some of you guys have.

I live just north of Seattle, in Everett, and that same picture is on my screensaver!

Must be a NW thing.
