Default Excessive Hoppyness Under Construction!! ----PICS ADDED

Well, I just wanted to pass along that Excessive Hoppyness is officially under construction.

My wife and I were able to snag a 14' x 20' out building in order to build a pub/brewery in. I have been working on gather equipment up to move to 10g all grain batches, and materials to work on the building. For Christmas my wife has wired the building, insulted it with 4" R-13 and put up the smoothed OSB board. I do not have any pics of the current progress only my google sketch up rendering of how I hope it looks when finished.

It will also give us a guide to follow since everything to drawn to scale in the pic. (with exception to the brew stand).

I told her to start taking pictures of the progress (since I am not aloud to see until after Christmas). I will post them up after Christmas...In the mean time...

Behold Excessive Hoppyness!


How it could look any way....

+++EDIT++++

Also, I know that pic sucks pretty good but if you have Google Sketch up (it's free) let me know and I will email you file so you can 'walk around' in the 3d environment. I'd love some suggestions also if you have them!


++++EDIT PICS START on POST #20

Right now it's just something I want to do....Have a place to watch some basket ball and brew beer.

However, I could see after developing some sort of following, I could live with the idea, of being a full time brewer for sure. I'd be happy as hell if I can get a small amount of people coming over regular drinking my beer and putting a few bucks in the tip cup, so I could brew for free!

It all started....."You have too much beer stuff in the house, we need to get that out of here!"
