I just moved to all-grain brewing and moved the brewing operation to the garage. I bought a Blichmann 10 gal. boil kettle with a ball valve, thermometer and view glass along with a Blichmann burner. If money is no object then you could consider doing the same and that would get you and the wonderful aromas that your wife doesn't like, out of the house. The kettle pretty much stays in place for heating my water, boiling the wort, chilling the wort and finally transferring to the primary. Since I don't plan on doing anything over 5 gallons, I think this will be sufficient for me, for now anyway.
