Here are a few "final" pictures, including the tasting table. I have since added the trim around the door, finished painting, etc, etc.
This was a really fun project to do. Now we have all our wine in one place, which is a much better environment for the wine, as well as much more efficient. I don't think the cooler runs more than 2-3 times a day for 5 minutes in the summer, and I rarely hear it run in the winter. It stays at a fairly constant temperature between 55-58 degrees. It's set at 58, but in the winter it drops to 55 at times. If it gets much cooler, I may need to install a heater
The humidity runs between 65-75%. If it gets down below 50% or so, I'll need to add a water feature to increase humidity in the space, but so far that hasn't been needed.
The laptop is kept in the room all the time. We keep an inventory of our wine so we can find it in the racking. Columns are numbers, rows are letters. When we're pulling wine out to drink, we usually just write it down on a notepad. Later, we'll fire up the laptop and enter the information.
Hope you like it
If you have any questions about anything I did on this project, feel free to ask. If I can remember, I'll let you know...
