I've started this thread to chronicle the construction of my new wine room. As I live in the Deep South, this will be an above ground room with temperature and humidity control. You can see from the photo, this is a currently an outdoor area surrounded by my home on three sides. I installed a slab there several years ago, which slopes to a drain in the center. The space is 12' x 14'. The current plan includes: One 14' wall of bottle racking and one 12' wall of bottle racking, 6' high with 15" x 15" diamonds above. One 14' wall (door is on this wall) with base and wall cabinets to store all of my winemaking equipment and supplies, deep stainless sink for cleaning, washing, etc. Last 12' wall will have vertical racking for carboy and barrel storage, with 15" bottle storage diamonds above. Stone floors, oak walls and ceilings, stone countertops. All oak wood racking, cabinets, and storage. I'll be using a split, ducted, refrigeration system with humidity controls. With building permit in hand, tomorrow it kicks off with a 6" x6" curb to install the fourth wall on top of. All the walls will be 6" with closed cell sprayed foam insulation. Here we go!
