So SWMBO and I have been looking at houses (figuring this is a damn good time to buy of course). We had started to lose hope when a nice looking house popped on the market Saturday (5/2). We immediately wanted to go see it, went and saw it Sunday (5/3), and had the offer drawn up and put in by Sunday night (so yeah, the same night I am writing this). It would seem that we have a pretty good chance of getting this place, and while we've learned to not get our hopes up, we are more hopeful on this one than any of the others we have liked.

Onto the good stuff: the place has a 'bonus room' that is not counted in the sq ft of the house, but it is quite big. I keep telling SWMBO I want a beer room, and this is just perfect!





Tons of room for a keezer setup, brewing space, fermentation chiller. The whole 9 yards! I guess I just have to be able to afford all the bells and whistles once we buy the place

Wish me luck!

Congrats! That's one of the reasons why I'm trying to collect all of my beer equipment before I buy a house... that way girlfriend HAS to allow space for it! (Though she has already said at least a bar area for the keezer is required)

I'm pretty jealous, but my beer room doubles as a guest bedroom, so it's mostly a beer closet with random brewing stuff scattered on top of the bed. The kegerator lives in the family room. Best of luck, and I agree that you need to try to collect everything before closing on the house. If not, you'll end up buying stuff like hose nozzles, grass seed, and paint. It took me 6 months to make the switch to AG after moving.

Unfortunately I won't be able to accumulate any more until we move. I've been capped for buying more stuff for now It's cool, we really don't have the room for it right now anyway!

The house might come with a slightly older apartment sized fridge we'll replace in the kitchen, so I'll be able to snag that for the beerery.

Here's hoping you get it

SWMBO and I have been looking forever as well, we're just about fed up with the whole process.

Where abouts in SD is that place?

Very nice! I love having my own home to do with what I want. I actually have 3 rooms with beer stuff now. One dedicated beer room (6X8 or so) that I store most everything in, has the kegorator as well. There's another room that my wife calls the "Laundry room" but we really know it is the "Brewing Room" as it has the electric brew-rig in it. Also has a couple large white metal boxy things used for something or other. I also use my very messy office as a grain storage room. (Buckets and ammo boxes).

I guess my long winded point is... get plenty of space for beer stuff!

SWMBO and I have already agreed, our next house will have a dedicated brew room, a bar, and a room dedicated to her hobby (scrapbooking). Right now most of the fermenters are in the guest room and I have to move them out every time someone stays with us, and she is running out of storage space for her goodies. Not to mention all the equipment which is piled up in the garage.

Can't tell you that, you might steal it away from me! :-P


I'm as much excited about the beerery (I kinda like that name...) as I am about the garage. I'm a big car nut and love to work on cars. I have a race car my parents have been patiently storing for me for the last coupe of years. It would be great to not have to drive 100 miles to go work on it!
