Format:Paperback
This book gives you a very quick guide to building your own root cellar. You need to be a bit of a handyman because it is written for someone who has a bit of a background in how to build stuff.

I first read this book when I was 15 years old...back in 1990. I loved this book so much I couldn't put it down and often read it over again. It's been a long time since I've read this...almost 10 years now since, it was lost. I would like to buy this book in the near future so I could show it to my daughter who is ten years old and LOVES to read books like that. (her fav movie is the Lord of The Rings) I just know she'll love this one. Traveling in time to see the ones who once lived there and the adventures that they had...I miss this book and the ghosts who lived there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great information Aug. 14 2009
By M. Schwarzin - Published on Amazon.com
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
By Lorraine Davidoff - Published on Amazon.com
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
By Jean Hammond - Published on Amazon.com
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 Feb. 10 2010
By C. Ricks - Published on Amazon.com
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.
