Floor looks like the floor of a old milking shed we use to keep our Formula Fords in over in England.  Trough ran the length of the place.  Would love to have that setup here.


The trough is actually excavated to be able to stand up straight in the cellar. I did it only down the middle of the room partly to minimize the amount of dirt i had to carry up the stairs, partly due to the fact that I'm digging below the foundation of the house and it's built on unstable ground.

Here are some pics taken during the renovating:

You really have done a great job transforming that into a useable space. Well done.

One day I will add something here...

What an impressive amount of work!  Looks wonderful and it's a nice illustration of having a vision and then putting in the sweat it takes to make it happen!  Thanks for the photos of the cave in progress.

Please note the "high tech" Gauges for temperature taking :-)

Oh, you have the same type of "high tech" gauges I use!   ;D  I like how many fridges you have.  I'm heading in that direction when warmer weather comes and my cold basement room no longer stays cold.

Someone that dedicated to the art deserves a cheese. ;)

Way late to this thread I realize, but here's my little "cave" with air drying cheeses in top box, 3 black waxed cheeses on the top shelf, and going down a Fontina, 3 Parms, a Gruyere, and finally some soaking sponges on the bottom to boost humidity.  Looking forward to waxing something in yellow and red to add some variety in there...and the waxes showed up in the mail today, yay!

(The pic will probably be small (complaint from the illustrious Boofer ;-) until I figure out a quick way to enlarge for these posts.)
Have some (homemade) wine with that cheese!

Sorry to be such a nag. :P

Most of the time the pics we take nowadays are too large and must be resized down, not resized up. What are you using to snap your pics?

My humble little cave.  Inside are my first Brie which is coming along nicely and an Emmental in the cool phase of affinage.

I also have Pepper Jack,Gouda, Havarti and a Colby waiting patiently to be gobbled up. In the spare bedroom is a Jarlsberg in its warm phase of affinage.

Hi everyone. This is my mini-cave. It's a little wine cooler with some adaptions. You can see my last batches of hard goat's cheeses. The darker one its a Cabra al Vi, I did a wine bath with some of the local amazing wines. Hope you like it.
