Default The Hod’s Brew Shed Build

So I thought I would document the planned 4 week build of my new brew shed/man cave/summer house.

First stage today was removing the years of crap that’s been stored in the shed since we moved in 6 years ago. The shed is dying so needs to be completely demolished so I can start building a new timber framed building with a tiled roof, floor with vapour barrier and wall insulation.

I’m going to build a 3 brick plinth on the concrete base with a DPC to make sure it lasts the test of time.

Plan is to have mains electricity and a connection for mains water and a soak away waste. With a dedicated worktop and sink area at the back for my BM and brew fridge(s).

Ordered all of the materials, French doors, windows and additional door earlier in the week. IMG_3438.jpgIMG_3439.jpgIMG_3441.jpgIMG_3440.jpgIMG_3437.jpgIMG_3434.jpgIMG_3432.jpg

Day 1 complete, day 2 is to remove the roof.

It’s 4.5meters x 4.5meters.

I think I might end up sectioning about 1.5 off and putting a Separate door in so I still have some “shed” space as well as the brew shed part which will have French doors.

Asbestos roof off today. Needless to say full protection was used and the sheets all came off unbroken so it went well.

It’s amazing the difference taking the roof off and letting the light in makes.

Tomorrow is demolition day.

That's some space and project budget!! I look forward to follow this thread! What do you see as the biggest obstacle? Water ? Electric? Waste? What do you have planned as the steam extraction?

Seriously the materials budget for all of this is best part of £5.5k at the moment. I expect that to rise.

The electrics should be fine. I’m going to run a 32amp spur from the house DB. (I’m an electrician) with a consumer unit in the shed for the sockets and lights.

Water supply will be a temporary “plug in” from a hose from the house type affair. I think I should be able to route hot water from chilling into the water butt and any waste I’m going to build a little soak away.

The biggest challenge will be doing this along side a full time job and 2 kids.

I'm feeling your pain - about 18 months into decorating the hall.
The walls need repainting before I've finished glossing the woodwork.

But good luck with the build. I'm looking forward to seeing the progress and how it turns out. Have you alreay decided on the layout inside?
