Give your wine the cellar it deserves.

Here is one of our favorite projects. This was a lot of fun to design and build. Larry and Cindy Schlabach, the homeowners, were fantastic to work with, and allowed me be creative with the rack placement, and ceiling design. The lighting is mostly LED, with one row (about shoulder high) on two walls as a display. The ceiling and walls are tongue and groove redwood, and the wine racks are all redwood. The entire room is built like a refrigerator, keeping the wine at 55 degrees and 60% humidity.
