Welcome! I've looked at designs for root cellars online, too--and probably won't get it done for a few years. Some of the types I read about include using an old fridge or freezer (buried), a root cellar under a shed with a trapdoor and steps down, or one in the side of a hill. Under a house can work, too--but since you have a basement that won't work. I kept 50 lbs of potatoes in my garage this past winter and they kept just fine, but we had a long, cold, winter. I'm going to try a storage closet we have in the coldest area of the basement and see what I can keep there.

Welcome! We also want to build a root cellar. We've found lots of designs in books and on the web but haven't settled on one yet.

My name is Mary and new to this forum. We have a huge garden and freeze or can most of it. Hoping to some how create some kind of root cellar for the taters and onions. Basement got too warm even with the vents shut. Anybody got ideas?
