I really get tired sometimes of people who come to a wine board and expect everyone to be poor. I am enjoying this thread.
roflmao- not poor in the least.
Wasn't the implication Howard was making, but whatever.

You might be barking up the wrong tree here.

Built in a small-ish room but double-deep so it holds plenty. Did all the construction work myself, probably saving $70k in the process, and having a LOT of fun. (Sadly, no unpacked cases of DRC to be found.) Split system cooling. The bulbs are LED halogen replacements that put out near-zero heat (these were incredibly hard to find in 2008.)

We built a small cellar that holds just under 900 bottles. The racks are all-heart redwood from Apex (via Costco). The floor is a ceramic tile that looks like wood. Walls are Densarmor drywall. The cooling unit is from Cellarpro. Insulation is 3.5" of closed-cell spray foam in the walls, 5" or so in the ceiling.

This is nothing like what we started to build. The advice people on this board offered and the examples of cellars folks here have built were incredibly helpful.

That is an almost exact match of mine! Still running but I think the compressor needs to be replaced....Have been very lucky!

Mine is still ticking... like a Timex watch.

It has been almost 25 Years.
The Uniform Commercial Code, as it relates to secured financial transactions, defines a fixture as movable personal property that have become so related to real property that an interest in them arises under real property law. Think of your heating or cooling system for the non-lawyers here.

My Vinoteque is a fixture. When it arrived, despite my best measurements, it would not turn in the limited space in the stairwell to my basement. The movers un-crated the cooler and left it in my garage with a plan to pick it up and return it if I could not figure out what to do.
I ended up removing the landing to the stairs leading to my basement and lowered the unit down, and had the landing and some steps rebuilt.
It is now a fixture. Too expensive to remove. The buyer of my house has the option of keeping the unit. If they do not want it, a sawzall, hammer and some wrenches will remove it. I'll use the racking and give away the compressor.

Marshall - If that happens, I would be happy to give you the compressor. Except, I don't think the value of a 25 year old unit is worth the shipping costs East Coast to West Coast.

Thanks of the offer but mine is still running and worse comes to worse, I will replace the compressor if feasible. If not, I would simply have to replace it as my home is not conducive to building a real cellar. One of the reasons I am actually considering moving one of these days.

Cheers!

BTW, I am not a wealthy collector, but appreciate the pics from those that have better cellars than I do. Just as I like a Porche Turbo Carrera even though I cannot afford one either.
If I was a bit younger and had the room, I would do a full build out, but my passive cellar works well until I exceed 500 which is too often and seems to be just an unattainable goal. [snort.gif]

Thanks! I bought a cheap die set ($20 + $5 shipping) from Amazon. Time-consuming, but I tried using clear labels and they looked sucky.

Nice to see this thread revised. I imagine there may be a few more cellars done in the last four years to be featured.

In my case, I have an almost empty cellar; if I wanted a photograph of my wine collection in situ, I would post a picture of my off site storage.

Some of the greatest wines I have ever had come from an old friend of a merchant I deal with in England. He fought in the Battle of Britain, and after the War, became an engineer.
After a dozen stellar bottles, I was in England and asked the merchant about him. He was ailing, but was happy to see visitors, so after lunch, we went over. When we got to the basement, there were a few bottles stuck in the corner, generic stuff not in the last bit interesting. He motioned us to the side and pressed a hidden button. A large section of the floor began to move, a little creaky that gradually revealed a set of stairs.

Down we went. The smell of an old great musty cellar hit me. Rows of old Bordeaux, from the forties onwards, a few mid range Burgundies, and a few Ports. But it was the Bordeaux that drew me; that day I bought a few, some Lafleur Pétrus 1947 and 1955, Lanessan 1961 and a single magnum of Trotanoy 1959.

I have seen a lot of cellars, but none as interesting, or with contents that wonderful. He was a man who knew and understood his wines, and an early lover of Pomerol long before it became fashionable. I still kick myself that I didn’t buy the few bottles of Pétrus, which were just outside my budget.

This was about ten years ago, before the age of I phones. I also got the feeling I was privileged to be there, and even if I had a camera, could not have taken photos. Sadly I understand he died, and the cellar dispersed.

Some nice cellars.

Best I have ever seen is in Blackhawk (SF East Bay), a rather large house was half demolished, cellar dug in, and a nine+ car garage plus utility room/etc re-built on top. For 22,000 bottles, whites and reds sections separate and with separate cooling units, as well as another unit for kitchen/tasting room area. Full kitchen, dumbwaiter to haul wine up and down, tasting room/area probably 25 by 25 feet, massive centuries old table he found some place. Kitchen and tasting room can be warmed up.cooled down (and separated from actual storage areas by thick glass walls) in seconds, literally.Funny enough, that 22,000 bottles capacity was already seemingly reached and tested when I saw the place (as we unloaded wine to empty out wine shop back room, 2 Gorilla racks' worth IIRC), with many wines sitting on the floor in cases/boxes with no room on shelves. Built by one of the most unassuming guys you'd ever meet, and one of the most generous when it came to sharing wine. I took a tour of the shelves, pretty much who's who of wine world, Old and New, vintages old and new, anything one would ever want to taste.

Here is mine. Designed by me, lots of help from contractors, and my father in law on the racks. 11' x 10' x 6'4" maybe 1400ish bottles total mix of case on the bottom to max space (think stuffing cases in the corners), double-deep single racks on top.

Alex, yes it is a piece of glass that I picked up on amazon actually. Then all I did was put clear rubber feet on the edge of the barrel where the glass sits. I was worried of it moving or shifting but zero issues

In Claus defense the aesthetics are fairly derivative. I think this is an area of people's houses where the man is left alone to decorate and we are fairly simple in this area.Wood, glass and rock are what we yearn for. Too bad an open fire pit isn't an option.

I built a 6' x 10' room in my garage last winter (no, a car won't fit any longer). All the racking I built from pine and the floor is plywood panels covered in corks from all the bottles of wine we have ever opened (so I can take the panels with us when we buy a new house). Cooling is just a window air conditioner with a CoolBot controller, and I don't need to run it from Oct - May.

You should check humidity with this, as ACs are generally designed to remove humidity.

Thanks, Mark. These are tiles 36" * 6" pieces @ $4-5/FT2. So far, holding up great.

I built a 6' x 10' room in my garage last winter (no, a car won't fit any longer). All the racking I built from pine and the floor is plywood panels covered in corks from all the bottles of wine we have ever opened (so I can take the panels with us when we buy a new house). Cooling is just a window air conditioner with a CoolBot controller, and I don't need to run it from Oct - May.
You should check humidity with this, as ACs are generally designed to remove humidity.
I have both a temp and humidity sensor inside the cellar (you can see it next to the magnum racking). Humidity stays 50-70% year round (thanks rainy Portland!).

Mine is likewise built in my garage- but in my current house I can still fit cars (deep garage)

Like the cork floor a lot. I am planning something similar on the outside of the stark white door, but haven't got around to it yet.

That would make the contents too obvious. :) Currently it just looks like a storage room from the outside (other than the cooling unit).

Took a more minimalist approach, space-wise vs my first cellar as I learned that few people like to hang out in 55 degree environments. This required cutting a 5’ hole in the foundation to create the entrance, but it was worth it.

When i put in a new cellar I knew I wanted some half bottle racking, which is double deep as is the burgundy racking below. Also double deep on bottom section opposite. I think these pics were taken in 2016 before i filled that bottom section with 2015 German riesling.

I seem to be failing quite spectacularly at posting these pix!

I am curious how much the cost range per bottle is today. When I put mine in, around thirty years ago, I was working for Wine Enthusiast, so my rack cost was low, around $4 a bottle (retail was around $6) , with cooling and construction extra. This included curved corners, but no magnum bottles (they didn’t have them then).

Looking at the cost of cooling units, there has been a 50% increase since then, but I imagine racking has gone way beyond that.

A somewhat distorted "pano" of our cellar...we are about three years into our collection. Temperature controlled, access off the kitchen, sound, TV (above door - not pictured)...an amazing place to escape the Texas heat! Red Oak wood work, granite counters & ceramic tile flooring. Our escape [cheers.gif]

I will add a word of appreciation to those posting photos of their cellar.
Much fun to see the variety of styles.
I am confident that I am not the only one who also looks at the bottles to try and discern some of the wines in the various cellars. As General Sternwood said, "nice state of affairs when a man who has to indulge his vices by proxy."

Nice work Jake, that's a beautiful space. I would spend 75% of my time at home in there. Great mix of bins, vertical slots and display. Whats the bottle capacity?

Thanks all - the corner shelves of the cellar at set an angle, so we can place single bottles on their side and "push" them back...and as we remove one, the next one "rolls" forward. Also the bottom racks on the back wall are double bottle deep...so in all, estimated 2,000 bottle capacity.
