What do we love more than a satisfied client? A satisfied AND returning client – that’s what! Today’s Testimonial Thursday offers a nice trip down memory lane since our customer Joe was quite familiar with our racking products. He built a wine cellar some ten years ago using WCI wine racks. That’s why he knows that assembly and installation is pretty straightforward – with the right tools.
So for this second project, the client got really creative. They moved into a new house and naturally, wanted a proper wine cellar for their collection. The issue was that the house didn’t have a natural place for a wine cellar, unlike their previous residence. But that didn’t deter them from building one. They worked on transforming the spare bedroom on their second floor into a tasting room. We loved how they set everything up, from the unique wine barrel table down to the other accessories.
It so happened that the room also had a walk-in closet. This was the one that they transformed into the actual wine storage. They purchased some Individual Bottle Columns and Open Diamond Bins to accommodate their collection. The wine racks were just the right fit for the narrow space in the walk-in closet. With the addition of some custom crown and base moldings and center seam trim, the assembly looks really clean and polished. Notice, too, that they chose unstained Premium Redwood units for their wine cellar. The natural pinkish-gold hues complement the decor in the tasting room quite nicely. We definitely love this DIY wine storage project and we’re happy the clients chose WCI once again! ^_^
“I used a nail gun but I pretty much knew what I was doing since built a cellar with your product about 10 years ago in another house (underground). This new house didn’t have any natural place for a cellar so we took a spare bedroom on the second floor and made it a tasting room (photo attached) and converted the walk in closet to the actual temperature controlled cellar. It works fine albeit only half the capacity of what we had prior so we bought stand alone units to supplement the cellar. Put a photo of the exterior of the house also where you can see where we replaced a small window with the air handling unit.”
