Default Brewroom Build!

Hey guys, glad I am finally able to post this. After a long wait the construction on the brewroom (note: this is not a brewery indoors, just a place that fermentation and storage of equipment and bottles will be held) has begun and is taking shape in leaps and bounds.

This all started when we got the idea that we were going to use the spare bedroom in the basement "for something." We toyed with the idea of having it as a work room with tools and everything, but it was only 80sq ft. Not large enough at all to build much of anything. We thought maybe we'd make a wall rack and have some wine there on hand. Nah... too expensive to buy commercial wine. So one day I told my brother (we live together) that I thought we should make it my brewroom to get all of my equipment out of my bedroom and the kitchen. And with that little seed planted, it was off to the races!

I had a stroke of luck last week Friday, had a meeting to go to at 9am-noon and I was off for the rest of the day, which was nice because I also had Saturday and Sunday off (not a common occurance for the company I work for). But the real kicker was I also did not have to work Monday. Wow, nearly a 4 day weekend and an almost empty Home Depot credit card? Oh man this is going to be epic I thought.

We already have a Hobbit door entrance to the Mancave in the basement, which is a 6' round entrance way into the downstairs living room where we have a huge "L" couch, a 65" DLP TV hooked to X-Box 360 and my Computer (ever cruised the internet on a 65" monitor? Its the best thing ever!) Fish tanks, plans for the bar, etc. This room is THE hangout in the house. I rarely if ever sit upstairs watching TV anymore. So, with this in mind, we had to make the brewroom just as special, but how do you top a 6' Round door frame in coolness factor or even match it? Well, you put a Diagonal wall up with Sconces on either side of the doorway and devise a really cool stone (maybe) wall covering that greets you as you face the entrance to the brewroom.


Round Door way- note in the background the spare bedroom as it was.




What follows is as best as I can document the build. For now I have just a few shots of the progress using my cellphone camera. Both of our other Digicams shorted out, so this will have to do until I steal my girlfriends digicam

Pics here shortly.

More pics to follow.

The doorway was the Pièce de résistance. Great drunken idea if you ask me.

you need to make a door that looks like the top to an oak barrel. That would be sweet.

FSR, We are open to ideas. We were thinking roughsawn wood for the door with bark and stuff still hanging off it.

Berserker, trust me, it was not difficult to make that door frame. I swear to you it cost me $30 in wood and $150 in C-clamps and Spring clamps. I could detail the process of building the frame for anyone interested. I do have pictures of that. PM if interested.

On and lol that everyone is more interested in the round door to the mancave than they are of my brew room!

Looks like a hobbit door from down on the shire.
