My biggest concern was appropriate ventilation. I've seen a cool build on here utilizing a 55 gallon steel barrel cut lengthwise and welded together and figured that was an excellent idea. My dad has some free plastic barrels laying around so he fabricated the hood using that. Definitely a cost effective solution. Powering the hood is a 500ish CFM hydroponics fan.
Next up was gas. The furnace is right behind the camera POV so I tapped off a natural gas line using 1/2 CSST proflex line. Built a manifold with black iron and used mr. Heater universal natural gas hookups from the manifold to the burners. At 20 dollars each they are a bit of a steal considering they include a ball valve.
Next up was a sink. I was glued to craigslist for MONTHS trying to find a nice stainless sink from a restaurant auction, never found exactly what I wanted. Ended up with a Mustee poly laundry tub for TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS from Home Depot.... Killer, killer deal. Plumed it to a drain line from the first level half bath right above the sink location. I'm researching faucets, but for now I use a use right off my water meter (pressure is hilariously high). There's PEX to tap into right above the sink when the time is right. I'll probably also add a ball valve off the PEX with a hose fitting to dedicate to my chiller since it's right next to the boil kettle. Sink is drained with a 1/3 HP Sump pump from menards. It's simply in a bucket (for now) while I look for a sealed basin to use.
Next up, more electricity, hood lighting and shelving.
