I've got most of my stuff on a shelving unit in our laundry room in the basement. My brewing takes place in the garage, which is on the same level as the laundry room.

Recently I tried to do some organization so I've got a couple fairly large rubbermaid tubs and one is filled with stuff for brewing and the other is for kegging. In the brewing one i've got my thermometers, nylon bags, adjuncts hydrometers, scissors, lighters (for the propane burner) etc ... It's nice to just grab it and take it all with me at once instead of hunting around when I'm ready to brew.

In the kegging one i've got all of my wrenches, spare poppits, O-rings, some tubing, keg lube, sanitizers, auto siphon, cleaners, small containers for soaking smaller pieces, etc ...

My stuff is pretty spread out between house and garage. One thing that almost looks organized is my pegboard wall in the garage. It is mostly tools, but great place to hang hoses, paddle, siphon, brushes, etc..

Some stuff on the front porch, some in the back yard, some in the basement, some in the pantry. I know where everything is even though there are four places.

My wife has not complained about it either. That's weird.

I'm in an apartment too. Small one with no stairs so my stuff just sits in the corner. But I just got a new apartment and I'll be moving at the end of the month. Way more space and a private deck to brew on! to apartment brewing!

The house that I'm living in has a basement, and I have basically commandeered the entire west side of it. My roommates don't seem to mind too much (yet). Pardon the fact that the area is pretty much a mess, but I just brewed yesterday afternoon and the mash/lauter tun, HLT, and other equipment are still drying...

Most of my equipment is in a closet. I bought one of those cheap plastic shelving units like other people are using and stuck it inside. I have too much equipment/bottles for the closet so some bottles are stored in the bathroom I use for fermentation. My mash tun is in the dining room and there's a few things in the bedroom where the bathroom and closet are.

RAM,that's pretty much where I was early last year. then I got busy spring cleaning when I realized I could use my old printer cabinet for a fermenter stand/storage unit. My stuf,including large numbers of bottles in odd size boxes were all over the 1st floor. Momma was def annoyed. She smiled pretty big when she caught me cleanin to re-purpose the printer stand & corner of the study. Slowly turning into a man cave.
