My wife will no longer tolerate my brewing in the house or garage. She has a "Super Sniffer" and it drives her bat****. Anyway, I'm going to build a shed in the back yard and dedicate it to brewing. What are some of the creative and inventive things I might incorporate? I have some ideas and am curious as to what you all can dream up.

large tv, cable, dvd player, console(s), etc to entertain while you're not actually brewing something. A kegorator/keezer to have what you previously brewed on tap 24x7. Maybe a decent grill/bbq outside too.

Are you electric or gas/propane for brewing? Just be sure to properly vent if using gas/propane to heat.

I'd also make sure it's clear of anything that could fall on it and cause damage. Would be a shame to get it all built only to have a bad storm bring a tree down on it before you get to use it even once.

If your wife is going to kick you out of the house, show her and install a stripper pole and disco lights.

You know those globes that people put on a pedestal in their yard? Well get two of those.

When she asks what they are for, tell her they are just to look at. Same as the balls she keeps in her purse!
