Closing On Land :)
« on: October 07, 2009, 07:46:40 AM »
I just got word Yesterday that I will be closing on the land (3.6 acres) either Friday or Monday. It has been almost a year getting the deal done. The plans are to put a house on the land and a nice big (Bigger than the house) shop/brewery. The hope is to break ground spring of next year with a move in date 8-12 months later. There is a lot of cleanup to do before we can break ground and I plan on using the cooler months to take care of that.

Here are some pics
This is the raw land

This is the house the wife wants me to build

Wish me luck!

We closed on Friday afternoon. (YES!) However they would not take the kids as collateral  ??? They did want the dog, go figure!   :D

You "all" are welcome any time to visit the brewery once it is built! There is always plenty of beer and often some good conversation to go with it.  ;D

Here is a floor plan for the shop/brewery.

Whoa whoa whoa...

Too many cars, not enough dedicated space for the bar/tv...

If you're going to live in there, you also need a shower - hot tub - BBQ grill - I mean, this is a man cave RIGHT???

ps What's the scale of the drawing?

(I'm quite jealous...)

Dont know what the scale is, but the building is 50 x 80 :)  That's right 4000 feet of Man cave! Well Maybe. When SWMBO heard how far back I wanted to build, She decided she wanted the garage attached to the house. Sugar melts you know! So I am actually redoing the plans. I will post it up when I get a better handle on things.

Like George Constanza on Seinfeld, beware your worlds colliding.  The cars next to the brewery is close enough, but now attached to the house and her solar system? 

Better to give her the attached garage of her dreams and build your man cave to your specs far away, in a different orbit?
