Build a Cold Storage Room in basement - Walk-in Cold Room Plan Design Idea
In 2003, I decided to build myself a cold storage room in my home basement.

The goal was to store garden vegetables, canning and canned beverages. Of course, one of my wishes was to be able to walk in the cold to access to the shelves
(Walk-in Cold Room).

This idea should be useful for gardeners and homesteaders!

Framing a cold storage room:
Ideally, you should use a basement corner of the house to take advantage of two cold concrete walls.

These bring the coldness of the room. For me, it was impossible to use a basement corner, so I will use only one wall to cool this storage room.
