Brew House Design

Here's the deal. I've got this "cabin" next to the house currently housing patio furniture, sports equipment, and some critters that found gaps in the previous owners crappy construction. The previous owners lived in it with no running water while they roughed in the house.

It is currently insulated, drywalled (minus the ceiling), and wired for power. It no longer has a power feed from the house unfortunately. The squirrels and mice have made a mess with the insulation and it will be gutted to bare studs for cleanup and pest eradication. SWMBO has mandated that a storage closet be built for holiday decorations and the like. Attached is a sketch of what I'm working with showing the storage closet dashed as future.

I've got a chicken coop to finish converting to a dog kennel, and then this will be the focus. I'm looking to get some feedback as to what I should be thinking about once I start in on this. I'll try and post a couple pics of what it looks like tomorrow.

Here is a picture of what I'm working with. Including the 100# propane tank that was found in the raspberry bushes behind the brew house.

My plan is to setup my existing 10 gallon propane 3-tier system in there and possibly make it a single tier with the addition of a couple pumps. Haven't thought that far ahead yet, still trying to decide exactly what all I want to have out there and the layout.

Any thoughts, comments, or rude remarks would be welcomed.

One thing that needs to be done is verify the foundation. I was told when we bought the place that it is a deck block foundation, but the sand has shifted and I can't see a thing. I'm planning on taking the tractor and scraping it back and I hope to find some blocks under there. If not, it'll be a pain to get some under there.

SWMBO's dad can get me marker board for a good deal (usually free \"\"), so my plan was to cover the brew area walls with the stuff. Should be good for moisture resistance and for making notes / calulations on.

After Parker36's suggestion, here is the modified layout. If I get out there to do some cleaning this afternoon, I'll try and snap a couple pics of the inside.

Anything else I'm missing that I should be considering?

Really haven't put any more thought into the final product of this, but here are a couple of shots from my blackberry of the inside of the existing cabin.

Well 8 months ago before I got laid off I would have agreed that we switched places. Now that I'm living downstate in a rental house, no so much.
