I have an area in my basement that I am preparing to use as a brew room. Here is where I started:

I'm no expert in this area, but i'll give my .02! In my opinion if you can recycle the air in the brew room every 3min I don't think you should have any problems. seems like your taking all the necessary precautions.

Add the new wall and ceiling, insulation and plastic vapor barrier.
On the other side of those walls is a bedroom and storage area. Rest of the walls are the work shop and a storage area.

Add the post for the tiered system, and the plastic and insulation on the other wall. The gap in the plastic, where the wire is hanging is where the Exhaust fan will go... once I buy it. Also got the rest of electrical done.

Drywall is up, the 4 inch fresh air in vent is in with ducting, and the door and frame is in. I hate sanding drywall mud so I textured the entire room with an old adobe style.

Painting, high gloss oil based enamel. Used oil based primer and two coats of finish. Used oil because I wanted high gloss finish and durability. Had to use an anti-mildew additive (http://www.bigpaintstore.com/spr-mc2-10-48.html because oil based paint is not that mildew resistant. Ceiling is white, walls are camel, floor is a utility gray.

How did you work the exhaust portion? Does it vent right to the outside? I would assume it does. If so did you cut a hole right through and run it out like a dryer vent? Also I assume your using natural gas?

Installed the wood trim on the back wall, finished the post for the tiered brewing stack. Going with 60 quart pots so I can do 10 gallon batches. I have low pressure burners (3). In the 2nd pic the wood on the right wall is the level of the HLT, the wood runner (where the socket is) is for the MLT, the BK will be to the left of the post and have legs.
