Wow. You could cusomize a perfect nano-brewery out of several of those floor plans.  I like the idea of a napping loft and a stogie porch as well.

Some great designs...I have one that I custom built from some plans I bought online. Took me a whole summer to build on the weekends with some help here and there.

What are the dimensions? That looks really nice. Any pix of the inside layout?

Very nice shed.  What do you use the ramp for?

Thanks...It's 12 x 16 with a large loft.  I use it as a workshop and I also store my garden tractor and bbq equipment in it.  It's a "mancave" of sorts.  I actually would like to convert it into a nano brewery.  8)

It has electric (50 amp subpanel), but would need plumbing if I decide to convert it into a brewery.

It's a colonial style barn shed.

i have one that is 10 x15 plus a 3 foot porch and overhang.  i built it 13 years ago, originally 5 feet of it was storage shed with double side doors.  the front side has a regular house door on it and opened in to a play house with a loft.  i am currently residing my house with vinyl and will be using the old aluminum siding to redo the shed.  i do have some electrical out there and just run an extension chord from my house to power the lights.  electric brewery in the future maybe.

nice work ron! My ultimate goal is to make a backyard brewpub similar to mrbowenz' in the alehouse thread. Currently my favorite design is this one:

I was thinking that i would probably need the 12x16 or 12x20 and came up with this layout for the interior:

I like the idea of the open floorplan so people could sit at the bar and watch a brew session. I think the bar tables and stools will add to the feeling of being in a pub and allow looking out of the windows and can easily be moved around for other uses like watching football games, etc. I just love the idea of having a few friends over on a cold winter night, sipping stout and having a good time.

The countertop would be standard kitchen-height and have cabinets or shelves underneath for storage of grain, equipment, etc.

Obviously none of this is perfectly to scale but its close enough for government work. If anyone wants the original .eps file let me know, i'd be happy to share it.

I was thinking I could use that fridge for a fermentation chamber, not sure tho.

my old shed built many years ago.  suffered extensive wind damage.  everything to the right of the front door is an actual shed, the left was a play house.  now just storage.  through the left window can be seen stairs to the loft.  the pile of white behind and to the right is aluminum siding from my house that will be re-used when i rebuild the shed late this summer.  brewshed? maybe

Agree with Tom--you can always use more refrigerator space.
One fermentation fridge for ales, one fermentation fridge for lagers or a different ale that is cold crashing/clarifying.  A third for storing multiple kegs.  A fourth under the bar for various bottles and sodas and water bottles, etc.  Perhaps a big walk in storage refrigerator for various barrel projects....
