Building a cheap cellar is not as difficult as you might think, and it can save you a lot of money on food storage. One of the ways to build a cheap cellar is to make a wooden box cellar. Here’s how to build it:
Start by digging a hole that’s 2 inches wide by 2′ 4′ feet (or greater), depending on the size of the wooden box you want to build.
Build a wooden box that will fit inside the hole, leaving some space between the box and the edges of the hole.
Make a few holes in the bottom of the wooden box to allow for drainage.
Line the inside of the wooden box with wire mesh to keep rodents out. Make sure to secure it well.
Add a layer of straw, leaves, or moss to the bottom of the box. This will act as an insulator and help keep the temperature stable.
Place a layer of sand or gravel on top of the insulation layer. This will help with drainage and prevent moisture from building up.
You can now add your veggies to the wooden box. Make sure you store them in a way that allows for good air circulation.
Building a wooden box cellar is a great DIY project that can help you save money on food storage. With a little bit of effort and some basic materials, you can build a cheap cellar that will keep your veggies fresh and delicious for months to come.
