Wow, fantastic! Did you build it from scratch or ordered a skeleton somewhere? I was thinking about something similar for my backyard was just wondering if I should order ready thing or order someone to build it ;)

I ordered it turnkey from http://oaktreesheds.com. Best decision ever.

Looking good. Will you finish the inside?

Steve, yeah. I need to run electric, plumbing, insulation, then I'll probably put up moisture-resistant wallboard and paint.

Still so much work to do...

It started to get dark out so I'll take more picts tomorrow, but here is my new Brewshed!

All 3 windows slide, lock and are removable...

Took picts of the completed foundation areas. When the delivery guy dumped the stone he wasn't close enough to the 4x4s and spilled a lot of material on the grass, we still have some cleanup to do but didn't want to shovel any grass/seed into the foundations.

I def got lucky, my wife loves brewing with me and she already started buying me beer- and brewing-related signs and stuff for the brew shed.

The pit looks great. Those wall bricks are prefect an allow great airflow.

Is that the dish of an old pit used as a cover?

Steve, that's exactly why I placed them like that, I never built a fire pit before but I figured the gaps would not only let extra air into the bottom of the fire but also allow heat and a nice warm glow to come thru.

And yup!, the copper bowl is from a small portable fire pit that has a cast iron base. At the moment we are using it as a cover.

10 tons of Crushed Blue Stone has been delivered and my wife and I spent the last few days shoveling and raking. We completed the Fire Pit area first since it was the smallest of the three locations and figured you guys might like to see it. I forgot to take picts of the finished Brew Shed and Tool Shed areas, I'll do that tomorrow. The sheds get delivered Friday the 19th.

First fire!

You'll probably spend more evenings outside. Good for the soul to be drinking homebrew under the stars.

Totally, that's exactly why we are also building the fire pit. I'm using the same foundation design as the shed, a 12' square made of 4x4s filled with 3/4 crushed blue stone. I'm going to dig a hole in the center so the first course of patio blocks is even with the ground for a solid base, then 4 more courses. It should be big enough for us to put a cast iron grill on top of it and use it to cook also if need be.

Tony, how cool would that be near your brew shed? Couldn't bring it with you like the shed though. Although I have seen them made on trailers to bring to events.

It would be amazing, I'm adding it to the wish list!

In other news, I bought all the lumber and patio blocks to build the shed foundations and fire pit area.

Wait!  You have a pizza oven?
Yes. We built one in our yard a few years ago using a big hunk of clay our friend found in some fill he got. Here's a slideshow of the build: http://www.slideboom.com/presentations/218324/Building-a-wood-fired-earth-oven

Pete that is very cool!

So is the full pad dimensions 10x14 or the interior dimensions?

f you move the sink you could install a stainless table with a drain that connects to the sink drain. That would be handy for drying gear after the brew day.

Do you get to assemble it as well?

I'm sure it will be awesome when complete.

Whole pad is 10x14 (interior is 7x14, porch is 3x14). It comes fully assembled, delivered, and leveled. The only thing I have to do is build a foundation of 4x4s filled with crushed stone that's 1' bigger per side (12x16 total).

I looked into stainless but its not in the current budget, the sink in the layout is a plastic utility sink that's around $100 from Home Depot.
