How To Build Your Own Root Cellar


Have you ever thought about building your own Root Cellar?

Root cellars are used for keeping food supplies at a low temperatures and at a steady humidity. They can effectively keep food from freezing during the winter and keep food cool during the summer months to prevent spoilage.

Typically, a variety of vegetables are placed in the root cellar in the autumn, after harvesting. A secondary use for the root cellar is as a place in which to store wine or home-made alcoholic beverages.

This root cellar was built using 320 concrete blocks laid on a concrete footing, then covered with a arched contrite roof and 2 feet of earth. The end result is pretty impressive.
