I had 700 sq ft of unfinished storage area in my basement. The basement is perfect for fermentation temperatures. It keeps right around 65 degrees all year long. I started planning what space I will need for the brewery and still maintain enough storage for all the useless stuff I own.
I started framing out the brewery and storage rooms. I would end up with a total of 350 sq ft for the brewery floor plan, and still keep 2 smaller storage rooms. Also, I was able to incorporate a model display case inside the brewery.
Drywall went up next.
