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!

1.) I agree with your statement, but I checked the wall during the boil and it wasn't even warm to the touch. Believe it or not, nothing outside of 6 inches from the pot gets warm; I was very worried about this and kept checking throughout the boil.

2.) I am going to do stainless or diamond plate around the washtub and near the boil kettle eventually. Maybe an X-mas present to me. Tile is on the wish list as well. I did keep the drywall at least 1/4" off the floor to prevent water from soaking in, in the meantime.

Thanks for all the nice comments.
