Home brewing has been an after thought lately. That might be too advantageous of the home brewing situation.
Brief sob story: Life has been busy. Everyone’s is.
Between work, family, and a hectic basketball schedule, my free time has been spent trying to finish the basement. I have done most of the work. Er, um, I have helped my Dad do most of the work. He is 78 and still able to pound a sixteen penny nail in with two hits. Impresses me.
The work started over a year ago was interrupted by an injury to my foot, followed by the summertime’s busy basketball schedule…you get the picture. Late this fall I finally rededicated myself to the basement: electrical, dry wall, painting, flooring, doors, and the bar.
The bar, although small, is the highlight of the basement for me. From frame, to skin, to molding and staining (soon), each step has brought me closer to my own bar, in my own house, serving my own beer. Euphoric!
Tomorrow the trim will go into place with the weekend being marked for staining. A few minor odds and ends are left afterwards. So close.
Once the bar is done and the basketball season is over, I will light up the sky with the burner beneath my kettle. Enjoy!
