5.0 out of 5 stars Great information August 14, 2009
Format:Paperback
My husband built our root cellar using only the instructions in this book. Having this kind of storage is wonderful! Carrots, beets, all root vegetables stay amazingly fresh for months packed in damp sand in the cellar. We've been using the cellar for three years now and have never had a rodent get into it. Building a root cellar by hand from scratch is a major project, but well worth the effort!

4.0 out of 5 stars something to think about March 22, 2007
Format:Paperback
I am planning a root cellar, and this book was a big assist. I am a little farther south, and so it had a lot of information that is less applicable to me. Valuable for the northern half of the U.S.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource March 28, 2008
Format:Paperback
I really recommend this product as an excellent resource fo starting a root cellar project. I had considered just winging it, but the materials list has proven invaluable - mostly because it allows you to utilize found materials and save money. The step by step planning is very helpful. A great book for the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for One Specific Design February 10, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This pamphlet contains fairly detailed instructions on how to build a 12'x8' root cellar on a flat piece of ground (dig 4 feet down, stack the cinder block walls, put on a wooden roof, and heap the excavated soil over and around it. It contains no information for modifying or enlarging the design, how to use the cellar, or anything else. Still, it's reasonably priced, so I was satisfied with the limited info.

This is a small document, but it's everything you need if you're considering an underground, or partly underground, root cellar in a bank, next to the house or greenhouse, or just out in the middle of the field. As noted elsewhere, this is for the northern part of the country.
