Let me start this off right with a

Ok, now that that's out of the way.

SMWBO's Mistake of 2009 (and it's only March!)

We're driving to Wal-Mart last night to pick up eye hooks, hair dye for SWMBO, and other miscellaneous Wal-Mart purchases. We're going through the parking lot and she says, "I've been thinking, I would be ok with you taking the area between the shed and the neighbor's fence and doing whatever you wanted to with it for a like a little barn or something."
YES I say this outside while doing the fist out and tuck back to stomach. She says, with dread in her voice,"WHAT?!. I said you realize you just gave me the go ahead on a brewshed! haha I suppose you can guess her next words. HBT will blank them out so no point in typing them.

Now this isn't going to be any time soon, probably a year or two, but just the fact that I got the go ahead and it's not just a dream but a distant project is awesome! I'll start drawing it up in sketchup in the next month or so once I finish designing and building our patio.
i know it's now a Yuri or Ed thread with pics, but it's exciting for me. Hell maybe if I think about it I'll post a Build Site photo tomorrow Off to measure tonight. Dreaming begins.......NOW!

*edit* such excitement and my first non-dancing banana * boo

Awesome. My wife and I are planning to build a very long lean to shed across about 80 feet of our back fence for storage, parking the lawn equpment, etc. Little does she know I have about 15 feet of it designated for my own little brewshed.

As with you, it will be awhile, but can't wait.

Now get busy on yours, and post some pics so I can steal some ideas

I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to

Thanks for the support. Here are some Site pics along with some randoms of my dogs just now.
Future pics if any will only be google sketchup drawings of my ideas. I figure at minimum a year to 2 before this is a reality, but thats just time to save and plan it to exactly what I want. But don't expect to see progress shots here in this thread.

I don't have room for a dedicated brewshed on our lot, but it's a given that when it comes time to buy a NEW house, a separate outbuilding that can be converted is an absolute requirement. That, and a basement that both the dog can live in AND that can be converted into a bar space.

Does this mean you will have to change your brewery name?

No it will remain to remind of my "roots"

Yes, she does this between appts. Her old college roommate works for one of those rediculous high dollar salons and gives my wife cut and colors for the cost of the coloring, but she can't always make it up there especially with a 7month old. So she uses the wallyworld stuff to maintain her roots so she doesn't look like an average walmart shopper Her friend is coming this weekend and she knows she's going to get yelled at. But enough of this talk, my future brewshed thread has no room for discussing hair care

She could have meant, "You're an A-Hole, get out of here and take your stuff with you and live in the backyard. All I heard was, "You can have that space to do whatever.".
