You're my hero! I thought my dream of one day having a brewstand was lofty, now I have something to really shoot for. Keep up the good work and keep us posted!

That's going to be a beautiful finished space. I grew up in Mukilteo, WA and would love to move back around there and build something like this. Congrats!

Minor updates over the weekend, I only had part of one day to get any work done. Getting motivated to get the 'real' work done and out of the way now, so I spent the better part of Sunday putting in insulation in the unfinished half of the building.

I made quite a bit more progress after this was taken. I just need a few more batts and I'll be ready for drywall.


And a little progress on the brewing setup. The MLT is cut, and 'polished'. I did a silly thing and used a course grit flapper wheel on my angle grinder to remove the paint and labels from the keg, before polishing via this method. This made it really tough to get a good polish on the keg, and left some interesting texture to the metal. I'll definitely be staying away from the flapper wheel next time. Oh well, it still looks better than it did.

Incidentally, I wanted to make a recommendation for the 'high lift' garage door design I choose here to anyone considering building a garage or replacing their door. With my ridge pole design, I have ~11ft of clearance at the outer edges of the door (15' in the middle), so I went with a door design that rolls up 3 ft before making the turn and rolling back horizontally. This means I have over 10' of clearance between the floor and the tracks, and the door when it is open. The opener is 'jack shaft' variety that sits on the wall next to the door, rather than overhead as well. You can barely see it at the top left in the photo above (small black box, above the white light fixture).

This design costs a bit more (about $75 more for the track, and $200 more for the motor) than a standard garage door would, but it is absolutely worth it in my opinion if you have the ceiling height to work with.

Very nice work! I have been wanting to add a separate building in the back of my property so I could have a workshop and a brewery someday for when I retire. Now I am so inspired to get moving on planning it out further and get serious about building it. Thanks for posting, keep the pics coming.

Your a lucky man!

John

Amazing post

This is what imagine when i think of the OP and his build lol, so badass. I hope some day to have a plot of land big enough to do something like this...right now your little shed is probably half or more of my entire back yard...

Thanks, all.

Fuzze, I can assure you that is not what life feels like, especially after spending each evening after work up on a ladder with drywall and insulation dust covering my body. Oh, and then having the contractor stopping by asking for yet another check.

Still, I do feel pretty fortunate to be able to build something like this. It's a lot of hard work, but a really rewarding process.

Speaking of progress, here is the product of last night's work. I've got the guys coming over on the weekend to help me finish the drywall.
