Wine Cellar.

This was last winter's project for me.

When my wife and I got married, we both had large collections of wine. We each had "free standing" wine refrigerators in our homes. When we moved in together, there really wasn't room for both of them, so I kept mine at my other house in a nearby town and my wifes was in our house. Our collection grew quickly, and we soon ran out of room.

We decided rather quickly to build a wine cellar in our basement to house ALL the wine in one place.

Our basement had a dirt floor with decking over the top. We excavated dirt to make the floor level, added 4-6" of drain rock, and poured a slab over the top.

Once the concrete was in, I started building the room. Here are some picture of the framing work, including the 6 mil vapor barrier. I moved that junction box from the center of the room...

I started this room on March 1st last winter and finished on May 7th. One of the fastest projects of this magnitude that I've ever done.

Drywall, insulation, halogen can lights, and front door added...

The walls are 2X6 construction. There's R19 in the walls, and R30 in the ceiling. The 6 mil vapor barrier is on the outside of the insulation. I used greenboard on the inside even though the moisture level is not really high, and is non-condensing.

None of the walls are shared with other walls. The ceiling is shared with the Kitchen floor (I really had no choice since I wanted 8' ceilings, and wanted space above the racking for boxes).

The door is a solid wood exterior entrance door. It's got really nice seals all the way around.
