My greatest wish when planning the house addition was to have a root cellar. My sweet hubby gladly gave up some square footage from his workshop and I did a lot of canning to prove I'd really use it.
I have anxiously awaited the day I could use it to store my jars and some root veggies. It's not quite done but it's very close. For the shelves, we'll be using barn wood from a outbuilding at my parents' house. Can't wait to have another reminder of my carefree, blessed childhood in my own home.
