+1.

If you're going to be fermenting in there, temperature control is absolutely critical, since the shed's naturally going to be experiencing much greater fluctuations in temperature than your house or your basement.

Maybe Lattice the outsides, and grow some hops up the sides of it!

I think the idea of a shed is pretty cool ... maybe it wld be easier to enclose a porch

I was thinking of claiming some of the basement for brewing, but am worried abt the burner.

I keep looking at better built barns and think you know... Wouldn't have to build the thing, someone else would show up and build it for me! All I would have to do after that is insulate it run some water and juice to it and I'm set! Never have to leave my little 12'/14' paradise! Go wifi so I could surf HBT from it! Of course there is putting a heater in, an exaust fan and air comditioner not to mention a septic tank(cause lets face it, the yard can't handle that much water!). Wouldn't go the porch route myself, I'd go patio but DEFINATE covered area just outside the door. And I'd make the inside(other than the electronics) completely hose out friendly! Just turn on the pressure washer and let it fly a few times a year! Create a man zone Tim Allen would be proud of! grunt grunt grunt!!! oh yeah!
