I'm kind of running out of space for my brewing and other hobbies ... looking around the most obvious thing would be in the 'living room' to get rid of the loveseat, chair (they're pretty old/nasty from my college days anyway), and maybe the 'entertainment center' which has nothing in it. I don't know ... I feel weird getting rid of it, since then there would be no true couch or chair type furniture in the house ... but the truth is they haven't been used in years. I saw a facebook friend's picture where she had that fold up camping type furniture in her apartment ... I thought ... hm ... that's a perfect/great idea!

Do you live alone? Do you have a Significant other? Do you hope to have one some day? Those things have a bit of a bearing on furniture choices.

Load up your entertainment center with carboys.

Hm well those are interesting questions Reevy. I do live alone ... and I don't have a significant other ... do I hope to again someday ... I don't know, m a y b e. To be honest the house I live in, inside is in kind of rough shape, it's an 1850's house that was last updated in maybe 1980 ... This furniture has stains and stuff on it from things getting spilled, and from cats digging at it ... and it is consuming valuable space in the brew room, er, I mean living room. But it would feel odd not having these pieces of true 'furniture' in the house. My sister tried to help me out and put out all kinds of candles, fake flowers, lamps and stuff for me a few years ago to help me 'decorate' and make that 'pretty girl you have over' be willing, but ... slowly over the years since I've gotten rid of all that stuff to make room for other applications.

Hm load up the entertainment center with carboys ... great idea!!!

I have the spare bedroom, which was my gun room, now set up as my brewing room, with maybe 6 6.5g carboys and 8 5g carboys and some 1g bottles too, plus my saurkraut, and it's getting crowed.

Home depot is supposed to deliver my 7 cu ft chest freezer for my keezer Saturday, and honestly, right now, I have no idea where I am going to put it.

The 'master bedroom' is my workout room and is pretty full ...

No, you do not need a loveseat and/or chair.

My brewery is my laundry room. I would have a TON more space for brewing if we could eliminate that huge washer and dryer.

Clean clothes are overrated, as are loveseats and chairs.

Haha .. the washer and dryer I am not parting with ... though I did manage to squeeze a small chest freezer in the laundry room. The loveseat and chair yes I am willing to part with, I think at least the loveseat and possibly entertainment center will go to make room for the chest freezer. My kombucha brewing is right in front of the loveseat so that will take some careful work to relocate too. Ugh the carpeting in that room has to be at least 30 years old. But it's offgased all its formaldehyde and such so there is no way I would put in new carpet.

Hmm, how about a custom built couch with a temperature controlled compartment under the seat...

I just recently, well 2 weeks ago, added a couch and chair to my living room, only took 4 years to get around to that. Yes, I live alone...and only added the furniture to be closer to my kegerator

Oh you might be on to something! How about a couch with the temp controller ... but also small kegerators under the flip up seats! This couch doesn't flip out into a bed, it flips out into a party center!

Argh it hurts to think about it but my house is in such state that not having a loveseat or couch would be very low on my list of concerns for attracting a suitable significant other.

Roger that over, it's just about as good as gone. This house has really narrow doors and I remember having to have a friend literally squeeze this furniture thorugh the narrow opening about 10 years ago. So getting it back out will be interesting. Hm though I do now have a sawzall .....
