Default Basement Electric Brewery

Thought I'd share my project. Gutting a semi-finished room in my basement to build an electric brewery room. Here's some photos of the room originally and the ongoing remodel. Plan is to install the same sort of set up on www.electricbrewery.com with some minor modifications. Right, I'm getting the room up to par. It's going to take new electrical, new plumbing, new dry wall, new tile, and new windows to get the room right. From there, I'll be building my own condensate/vent hood and duct-blower system and then adding in the electrical brewing equipment. Hope this thread will help others who go down the same path. I'll try to share as much as I can about the process.

Attaching in photos of the original room. House was built in 1930 and the room we are tearing down has been unchanged since that time. One of the dead spaces behind one of the walls had an old shower sealed off behind it. Interesting to find this.

Very nice! If you can swing it, floor drains are a beautiful thing in a brewery.

Lucky enough, with the shower we found in the dead space, there was already a drain in the floor. As such, there will be a floor drain and it will also make it handy to connect the sink directly into this (initially wasn't sure if we'd have to jack-hammer into the floor. Finding this working drain really saved me some $ on the remodel !

Excellent. Weird secret shower saves the day!

How are you going to do the floor?

Might seem obvious, but make sure that old floor drain still works, before you get too far into the remodel.

Awesome project. Wish homes had basements out in the west coast.

Epoxy that floor up!

I would love to do something like this one day. I've got the basemen space to do it too. Time to start saving!
Subscribed. Excited to see where this goes.
