"Self-sufficiency does not mean 'going back' to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food that is organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings... and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully." John Seymour ~ Self Sufficiency 2003

... possibilities.  If we were still in the building stage lol

I always thought I was a relatively lateral thinker, but I never even considered this.
Being a deep chest-type refrigerated unit, the cold air remains at the bottom.  Imagine if it was a freezer...?!
One might have to dress warmly in order to delve into the freezer, but, wow, it would certainly hold plenty of food lol
The above images came by e-mail, and to complete the contents of that e-mail, here is a bit of a laugh...:)


  1. Love the cellar but it's so wet here it would be a nightmare I'm sure!

    1. Kev - Reckon it would have to be really well waterproofed!

  2. That would be rather odd with it in glass. I suppose you could rig it with a regular trap door. Love the idea. I definately could see having that.............

  3. Fab!! I could do with one of those

    1. Mum - Yup - that "fridge" / chiller would certainly be for a serious wine drinker...;)

  5. that's a little "avaunt garde" for me. I'm afraid I'd fall down inside it some dark night.
    I'm thinking of digging a root celler into the mountainside behind my shop this spring, though.

    1. Harry - Can see that the narrow stairs could pose a problem.

      Oooooh - a root cellar. I wait with bated breath to read about it... ;)
