This is our root cellar in Enderby.It was built by the owner before us for their market garden.It's dipped below -20 C here and never got close to freezing inside.Nice and cool in the summer too but we leave the door open for a bit of airing and kill any mildew.
The boxes at the back and rh side have sand in them and are good for carrots,spuds,apples,turnips etc. Canning stays on the shelves.

Nice! No wine?  :-\ :(

Root cellers where mostly under houses around here, as the basements were unheated. Cisterns never froze and taters and such kept to. Most of the heat was on the first floor of the house. These old farm houses has a lot, I mean a lot of doors and a lot of cubby holes along with them. :D
Move'n on.
