Default NanoBrewery build

Going pro soon so I'm building a simple 10 X 22 building to be the Brew Hause.
It will have a 4 X 9 cold room in the back for fermentation and storage. I'll also have my 4 tap (for now, max is 8) keezer in there as well as other pieces pertaining to the brew process. I'll have a 3 tier sculpture once the building has a roof on it. As the business grows so will the equipment.
Here's what I have so far.

Are you going to be doing all kegs at first or will there be some kind of bottling setup in there?

Looks good! can't wait to see it finished! Just one question, maybe I missed it, is there a foundation for you building? Won't the wood rot?

I'll be doing both corney kegs and bottles to start. I'll be selling out of a Wine Tasting Shop so people can come in and have a taste and buy a bottle if they want to. I have a feeling it will get bigger pretty fast. Small town with not a lot of choices.

The base is sitting on treated wood and the floor has a layer of roofing paper under it for protection. I didn't want to deal with pulling permits and having my taxes go up so I made it not permanent.

Also I'll be building the doors myself. Here's an example.

How big of a kettle or fermenter will you be using? Just curious if that floor will be strong enough to hold a big kettle/fermenter full of liquid.
