You are right, but it is so rewarding vs. paying someone else to do these things. I wouldn't be able to afford it any other way.

And the whole point of this hobby is to do it yourself instead of paying someone else.

I hope when I actually bite the bullet and buy my first house that I will have a "man cave." And in that man cave I'll keep my brewing equipment and all those goodies that you have included in yours.

Looks great. As a suggestion, move the hoses away from the burner area. I've blistered a few hoses that way.

Just a few suggestions:
1. If that drywall isn't fire rated I would put up something to protect the wall from the heat that burner spews out of it, even sheet stainless would be good.

2. Mold is in your future if you don't protect your walls from the moisture coming from the boiling process even with the venting as well as water you spill and creeps into the wall cavity. Tiling the floor and part of the wall would be great and give the room a "bathtub" effect so it keeps the walls dry on the inside.

3. I want a room like this!
