This may not look like a wine room (Yet), this area is part of a pantry room. The owner used it for a walk in Refrigerator, which led back into the kitchen.
This is a complete kitchen remodel and the owners decided to add a wine closet or room right in this area. Luckily the walk in cooler is a modular piece that you buy and assemble (or disassemble) in a short period of time. Once removed it left an opening good enough for a cabinet or shelves, but the clients had a better idea in mind.
As we’ve mentioned before, installing a cooler requires adding electrical power and air conditioning to maintain a constant temperature in any room. Also, the room has to be properly insulated to keep temperature constant around wines.
Once cooler was removed, the electrical and AC work had to get laid out in existing framing and the room was drawn to accomodate different wine storage systems, while also maximizing the size of room.
The picture above shows the room already framed in. The upper part of area is now closed off, of course it holds wiring and ducts that will feed and support the room.
The walls will be covered with tile and once this area is finished, the Wine Racks will fit perfectly in their niches. The rack was custom designed and made for this particular room. We can’t wait to show you the finished product. This is only 1 of 2 Wine Units that we are currently building.
The second one is also already framed and we are about to add some impressive beams that will Frame the display.
