    A lot of us envy all the stainless steel! Looks like it will be a show piece

    We’re done! Now to get brewing!

    My faucet is now installed!

    You can see it’s galley style - plenty of room for me to work when the door is closed. Those black boards at the end are stainless steel pegboard which I still need to get put up.

    This LE18 will be my first brew in this room.

    Toddler for scale - I currently have enough space for 450 bottles in the wine closet. I can expand when I run out of room but had to stop spending money. The shelving on the right is new and the left is what I had before starting the project.

    Looks great! Funny about the lock - my oldest will be 12 soon and my mother in law is asking if I plan to wall off/lock the wine making and storage area soon. I need to, but keep procrastinating.

    I thought wifey was the obstacle giving up the space. Her and her mom should have a talk because you have the help.

    That area where my barrels are also contains some 'other stuff' that she's not willing to move. As you know, I want it to be 100% wine related storage - she wants it to just be 'storage', including some wine. :D

    It just felt like a good idea. My toddler thinks all the things are for climbing on. The wine racks are secured to the wall - but I suspect his best superman impression would still get some bottles smashed and him hurt.

    Looks good, but it just won't be right until you have some red wine splattered on the walls and ceiling.
