So, I'm finally back in the game after 7~8 months hiatus and am started phase two of my brewery... convinced my wife to let me build out a room in the garage specifically for it as I only park my Harley in there. Its not exactly a Brewhut but it'll do...

Here are some before picks:

I plan on building a wall all the way across the garage cutting it in two... right at that concrete pillar in the first photo.


The door inside the laundry room is the walk-in cooler. To the right of the laundry room is where the two upright freezers containing my new 14 gallon fermenators will go.


Side door into the kitchen.


I'm going to finish that exterior wall and install a window A/C (with heat).

Any SWMBO tips for how to go about taking over half the garage?

Keep having kids until you run out of any room in the house - then mope that you just want one room to call your own. After a few years, she'll cave... heh

Progress. Got the wall and door framed today. Hope to have it finished either tomorrow or Saturday and have the A/C installed by Sunday latest. My garage is the most unlevel area I've ever worked in... 30+ years of settling will do that I guess. Pretty good for doing it by my lonesome, eh?

Looking good! I can't wait till the weekend to get started again on mine. Gotta do it in the morning when it is still cool.

The brew rig looks interesting. Got any more pics? Is it electric?

Here you go: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=39422

The only thing that's changed is that I've moved the pump back to the top and shortened all the hoses... so far it hasn't let me down.

Read Doc Love's articles on www.askmen.com every Thursday. Or buy his expensive book it's aimed mostly at single guys but the techniques work for married men as well. It aint easy and is considerably more difficult if you are married.

WARNING: his techniques only work on women that are clinically sane, highly ethical, flexable, givers & that have a high level of interest in you.

Made some progress... going a little slow by myself. Hoping to get it caulked up and painted tomorrow, then get the damn A/C installed - been muggy as hell in South GA.

Looking good, except your forgot some z-bar on your T-111 sheets. (learning the lingo).

I guess you don't need it since it is inside your garage.
