It’s finally happening!  We’ve had a dream of building a root cellar and we made the plunge…

Why a root cellar? Really, we wanted a giant fridge… space to store food and also space for mushroom spawn!  We keep looking at building more fridge space for our spawn business – that means mechanical equipment, electricity use and maintenance.  Fingers crossed the root cellar works as expected!

First step was to figure out where to put it…  Our original location was not accessible by a large truck so we decided to put in on the edge of the driveway.

We knew we wanted to purchase a culvert as they are designed to be buried and don’t need any extra structural considerations.    We also knew we had to build it above ground as we have too much water in the spring.

Little did we know that we needed a giant crane to lift the culvert off the truck… Always something new to learn!

Next we’re working on having the ends sealed…
