Default Brewpastor's Coldroom Build

I have been threatening this for years, but now it is coming together.

I have framed in a 80" x 90" cold room. Two of the wall are 2x4 against subgrade exterior walls and 2x6 against insulated above grade walls. The other 2 walls are 2 x 6. The ceiling is 2x6 against 2x12 existing insulated ceiling, and the floor is half 2x4 and half 2x6 on existing slab.

I have it all framed and I am ready to put in the window unit AC. I have build a recessed area for my draftbox/Irish Coffin. The interior ceiling height will be just under 8', with an exterior height of 9'.

I will post photos as they become available.

I was sitting too far from the monitor and thought I read 80' x 90' at first and was like, man Brewpaster does not mess around, still this is going to be awesome and can't wait to see the pics

OK, here are the first round of pictures. You are looking at the northwest corner of the garage/brewery. You can see the block on the back wall, which is the portion of the wall that is below grade. The place is a mess, but what can I say, it is a work in process.

Framed room with opening for Irish Coffin niche:


Framed draft box niche with bar surface. Note the space below the framing which allows access to the inside of the Irish Coffin:


The mess that is my brewery:


Irish Coffin temporarily in place:


I will be using standard insulation with craft paper backing. R-19 and R-12. Sheet-rock exterior and foam board interior. More to come.

For a few extra bucks you can get R-23 and R-13 batts. They are made with smaller diameter fibers.

Nice!
Looks like a solid old delta table saw there too!
I love all the random stainless goodies in there.
