Legacy Post - New Floor for the Cold Cellar

September 9, 2018

Here's an old project I never got around to posting - putting a new concrete floor in the cold cellar.   The cold cellar is just off the laundry room behind a batten door:


It's one of the neat features here at 173.  It's dark - lit only by a bare bulb, the temperature remains between 50 and 60 degrees year round and the room is full of ample shelving.   Back in 2010 I realized a new floor was in order.


Sorry about the quality of the pictures, back in 2010 I was really just starting to get into the whole smartphone scene!


I had a couple leftover bags of concrete in the workshop and was trying to figure out what to do with them, and the cold cellar came to mind.  It took me maybe an hour to put in the new floor...


I also made some adjustments to the shelving, reinforced the existing shelves, added a shelf and made a wine shelf to boot.  And - just for aesthetics sake, I also stained the new wood to at least kinda look old like the rest of the shelving!


And a couple pictures for posterity!


One more...


I get it - not fancy at all...but one of the things we love about 173!
