  • Congrats, a really nice size

  • Thanks mate. I am getting it fixed up now. More fotos soon.

  • Looks slightly bigger than a shed ;)

  • I want to live there with my 26 pinball machines. But it has to be here not there.

    Terriffic space mate, could grow muhrooms there easy if the spirits don't take all the room.

  • Its 28 x 12m in the shed. I am putting a bottling room and barrel room on the back, with an office and bottle storage room as well. So it should end up being about 450m2. Good enough for a start. Once the upgrade is done its a tasting room on the front. Thanks for the comments guys. The new concrete floor gets put in next week.

    Put in linear floor drains, otherwise don't bother redoing the floor.

  • While dirty, it doesn't look like bad concrete otherwise. Powerwash, etch, seal.

  • dump 1000L tote of water on the floor and see where it goes.. put your floor drain THERE.... (trust me!)

  • OK, more photos.

    Pro tip right there. Kick in the pills putting the drains in what would otherwise be the most logical place and then still have to be busier than a one legged squeegee jockey fighting to get the water in the drain.

  • nice mate. As the @grim says, linear floor drains are required in the right spots, but if you are repouring the floor, you can set the falls to the drains as you lay it

  • Thanks for all the suggestions. Lets see if I can remember my concrete slab design classes from uni. Anyway. I cant wait for this to be done and get back into production. I am sipping on an imperial stout whiskey i made with which was high in oats and i put 5% rye. Its fantastic.

  • Pictures ..... Let's see what's happening. Interest is pricked

  • Finishing of the render. Old floor ripped up. New slab going in next week.

  • The DIN-rail breakers are fairly modern - surprised to see them in that application though.

  • Gotta show this to my electrician

  • I'm sure that's been cobbled more than once.

    Yeah those DIN rail bits were recovered out of something else.

  • Clay subbase profiled to falls with internal rendering done. Concrete will turn up Monday for some real action shots. Or day I say it the money shots.

  • If you posted the pics properly it would be better. The way you do it is lazy and everyone has to click on it, then try to resize it so we can view it instead of giant, grainy size.

    I know moonshine comes and does it for you later, but we have already moved on without seeing it because it's too much trouble.

    Fixed, as always. Not a problem, just a different time zone. After all, I not only rework the posts but also the pics for proper dimensions and file size for optimal view experience. :-B

  • Ok what file size and dimension do have have to make them. Sorry about that.

  • @DonMateo said: Ok what file size and dimension do have have to make them. Sorry about that.

    It's been described here: ATTENTION: How to post Images & Video Links!

    But don't worry about it, I'll fix it anyway, because smallest possible file size is the key to success with the search engines. ;)
