Just Ordered My New Brew Shed
« on: September 03, 2014, 05:01:31 AM »
After a few years of saving I finally did it! I ordered a shed to use as my Brew Shed. It won't be delivered for 3-4 weeks but I'm really excited and couldn't wait to post.

The shed is 10'x14' with a 3' covered porch but it has a few unique features. On the porch-side there is an 8' wide opening that has three removable sliding windows. When all three are removed, an 8'x2' wooden plank rotates up from inside and flips into place in the opening creating a finished bar top. How cool is that?!

To give you a better idea of what that looks like, here are some similar designs from the same manufacturer:

My shed will be a combination of the two following designs. Centered window, double doors on the side from the first and the covered porch from the second. You can also see the bar top in place.





I chose a color scheme that matches my home brewery logo and this image is similar to what those colors will look like. Slate Blue siding, White windows, doors and trim, and Black/Charcoal Grey shingles.



I plan to build a brew bench and a 4-tap keezer and include a fridge, a small utility sink, tv, stereo system, etc etc.

We plan to take this shed with us if we relocate, so I'm also going to install outside spigots and electrical so it can just be "unplugged" and moved.

I am going to document the install process so I promise I will have tons of picts once it happens. I plan on spending the winter finishing the inside so it will be 100% ready for next summer. Can't wait to brew in it and have friends over to hang out at the bar!

p.s. also making a firepit!

Very cool!  Looks like a fun project.

It's been awhile since we had a brew shed thread.

Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?

Congratulations, Tony! I remember that you have been looking (and saving) for one of these for awhile. Just don't make the mistake I made and let the wife store her stuff in your brew shed.

Thanks guys!

Was messing around with possible layouts for equipment and came up with this so far. Not sure if everything will fit like this in reality but it would be nice to keep all of the power and water on the same wall. Suggestions welcome!

Not too bad if you don't have to add much to the structure.

No, I'm in a holding pattern for now. The wife has approved a $30k home brewery upon retirement
