Thanks cbjr1960. All of the cedar logs are from my dad's property. Everytime I go down to visit my parents, my dad and I ride on his ATV through the woods looking for dead red cedar for my "projects". Although my dad is still with us, there is a lot more sentimental value to my basement, having harvested most of the wood with him and stripped each and every log by hand. I'm glad that you were able to find excellent use of the wood that you and your dad harvested and milled....means a lot more! Nice job with your build.
I promised my wife that I would install the drop ceiling and have the carpeting done in the rest of the basement before I start anymore brewing projects. My next two projects are; 1) a Single Tier/3 Vessel AG Brewing System & 2) building a brewing room. I have the space to devote to a brewing room and plan on installing stainless deep well sinks, a stainless prep. table, shelving, storage, etc., but all of the furniture for the rest of the basement is occupying that space until the rest of the basement is done. Can't wait to get these projects going!
