Default A 'Build of Dreams'

Do you think it would be feasible for me to take this old deck, refurbish it, add on to it and build a brewery?

There's a deck? These Bell's Two Hearted must be doing more damage than I thought. :-/

When I squint my eyes I can just make out your future brewery! Seriously, go for it. I think it looks like a nice beginning.

Sentimental value to the old structure? I ripped out my deck cuz the critters liked it even more than I did. All pavers now.

It'll be cool - make sure to post pics of your first brewday. Too bad that huge propane tank is so far away from your new brewery. I'm imagining a small outdoor kegerator over there under the roof.

It would have been easier to start from scratch. If not for the sentimental value, I would not recommend doing it that way.

Just curious but do you live south of the Mason Dixon line? If not I'd be worried about frost heave with those cinder blocks... I just built a deck and had to go down 3 feet or more, for my concrete forms... Then again I live in CT...
Good Luck with the project... I can certainly see the brewery coming up.. one other question though...

Looks like you've got the framing up very nicely. Any plans for windows? Or ventilation fans?
