I was considering getting a shed for the brewery, but after realizing the expensed of putting electric, water, and heat to it, it made more sense to convert the spare bedroom into a brewery. This is the first step in the process, and that was building a Murphy bed. Started yesterday at 4pm and worked until 2am. Gotta finish some of the stain and chalkboard paint today, but shoud be done today!

Here is a shot of the murphy bed in progress...and a google sketchup of the brewery (not finished)...

Go go go! I presume you haven't run 100% of the details past SWMBO yet right? Easier to ask forgiveness than permission!

What is your plan for protecting that nice wood floor?

I'd install a real good exhaust hood for sure...

Does the Murphy bed actually fold down, or will that be a future enhancement? Seriously, I'd like to see a pic of it down if you get a chance.

Just finished staining and a second coat on the chalkboard...

My plan is to put the periodic table of beer on the chalkboard with a empty line in each beer style to be filled in when I brew and name a batch of that style that I like... I have 7 out of the 60 something already, but that leaves a lot of work

Haha I'm reading this from a Murphy bed right now. I put one in my basement room for when it is too hot to sleep on the second floor.
