Basement brewery build.
First, thanks to all you guys whoes pictures inspired me to work a room over for a brewery. Homebrewers are not gonna just have a bunch of crap scattered all over the garage anymore!

I bought a house two months ago I started converting an old bedroom in the basement to a brewery. it's dated, old shag carpet on top of a 6" subfloor and old plywood "wood" paneling and a false ceiling with those old fiber staple-in ceiling tiles. In the middle of the room there was a 6' closet and on one end a sink room. I tore down the closet and the sink room and not knowing what to do with all the paneling i screwed it to the floor joists for a ceiling, now i have at least 7' ceilings.

I thought it would be fun to start a thread showing my progression, purely for selfish reason if anything :)



I gave the ceiling and the walls a coat of paint. Ceiling is white and the walls are a wintergreen variety. Installed a lenoleum tile floor, a sink, and starting on the ceramic tile to go around my boiling stand.

next update.
The Holidays, new years, girlfriend, snow and ice killed the power for 2 days. I'm ready to roll. It just takes a lot of time and work to get all this stuff together.

Lots of good potential there! Have fun with the project!

next i'll rip the carpet up and put a coat of paint on it. I'm not looking forward to painting inside the hundreds of little 1/8 " groves in the paneling. But i'm allways suprised on what a coat of paint will do for a room.

That carpeting & paneling brought back memories of the house I grew up in. That stuff is old. :)

Looks like you got some work ahead of you. Look forward to seeing the progression.
