MET Grad? I graduated fall 07 with a BS in MET and BS in Business, we probably had a lot of the same professors.

There is a thread around here that has pictures and instructions about doing a undercounter fermentation chamber with a slightly modified refrdigerator. Maybe put that under one side and above you would have counter space plus a fridge to use as well.

BTW Petoskey is one of my favorite towns in up-north michigan. Boyne, Charlevoix, Harbor Springs too, could definetly live up there or at least vacation for extended periods.

I'll see what other chores on the hunny-do list I'll have to get done or add for SWMBO to agree, but she's usually reasonable once she sees it on paper and gets a feel for how cramped it will be. I guess being an engineering technician and spending most of your day drafting helps her out with that.

I'll kick around a few ideas with her and get a revised layout up for comment.
Build her an extra shed/cabin, you know you're gonna have to.

A pole barn will be an eventual for tractor, boat and snowobile storage. As of right now, there are about half a dozen other projects on the list that need to be completed first, like a retaining wall in front of said cabin, topsoil and seed for the entire yard, add bathroom to basement, finish basement, etc.

I'm thinking that I'm going to talk her into building a fermentation chamber that will not be put into actual use as such until the pole barn is built. She can have it as nice secure storage area to keep the critters out of Christmas decorations and such for awhile. Then as more storage space is created, I get what I want. Not ideal, but can be done on a much smaller budget than tacking a 30' x 40' pole barn on our 5 acres.

I'll either go with an under-counter fermentation cabinet or something along the lines of Boerderij_Kabouter's side-by-side chamber for the interim.

That's the plan for today, it'll change tomorrow.

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.

Plans are looking like a whole lot of nothing at this time. I'm guessing this is going to get put in the "dream" pile for awhile. Between work and the projects other people think are more important its on hold indefinately. If I can't do it right, I guess why bother doing it at all.
