Is it summer yet? I'm almost ready! As I mentioned before I've been avoiding spamming the this thread with non beer related updates, but I'm happy to report that the decking is done. Moving along now to the railings and the arbor, painting the fence, and building the outdoor kitchen.

Meanwhile I'm happy to say that the brewing continues, with an IIPA, Maibock, Moose Drool, 'Island Lager', home grown apfelwein, and a Pale in various stages of fermenting or consuming. We're looking forward to the brewery warming party in March!





The design has changed a little from the original sketches, but it's pretty cool to once again see my drawings coming together in real life as they did with the building itself.

Looks really good! That'll be an amazing space to use in the summer!

Your lawn isn't as green as in the sketch though!

Seriously! My poor lawn (at least the part the borders the deck) has been destroyed by this project. Far too much foot traffic and materials placed on it at the worst time of year. As soon as the days start getting a little warmer/longer, I'm going to begin a serious lawn revitalization effort.

for all the more that's left I say go with astroturf and use the time saved from mowing to brew!

Honestly looks great. In the last 3 years I've gone from a grass only back yard to around 1200 S.F of Deck and patio space.

Heh, yeah I can certainly see the attraction of 'hardscaping' over lawn. That being said. I have encroached upon my lawn enough in this project and am determined to take good care of the rest of it. We have a dog, and plan to have kids. Both of these critters benefit greatly from a good roll around in the grass on a summer day.

Some aeration, overseeding and water will green it back up in no time. Grass is easy if you get sun.

It's hard if you have too much sun
