Join with us on our adventure as we build East Alstead's first brewery and what is quite possibly the only off-grid commercial brewery in the United States. We feel that what we brew and how we brew it are equally important. If you would like to help out with this project, contact me at:

Building Walls

Last week I took two days off work to try to get some work done on the brewery.  This weekend I tried to finish what I started.  Well, I did not get as far as I wanted, but then I always plan for too much.  What I have got done was pretty good.

I build and framed an interior door.  This is quite a task if, if one has not done it before. In the end it took a surprising amount of time to complete.  However, now that it is done it looks pretty good.  

The other task I accomplished was framing the partition wall.  Since we plan to have a sales area, we needed to have an interior wall to separate the brewing and sales areas.  This was not too difficult a task. The only problem was that since it is 9'4" from the concrete floor to the joists above I had to build the wall and then build a short extension to connect it to the floor above.

So I accomplished a good bit of work over the last two weekends. Hopefully, I will soon have some more videos and pictures to post.
