Home “Wine Cellar Design” – One Room Challenge – Assembling the Racks (Week 4)

Wowza! What a busy week we have had! The wine racks have arrived and assembly has begun!

My Participation in the One Room Challenge


This wine cellar design brings me to my fourth season of the One Room Challenge. So many other talented people are participating as guests, please check out their spaces too HERE.

What is the One Room Challenge

The One Room Challenge™ is a biannual event every April and October and is currently in its fourteenth season. Each round, twenty design bloggers take the challenge and transform a space. Every Wednesday, the designers document their process while sharing their sources and professional advice over six weekly posts.

The ORC has also teamed up with the awesome Better Homes and Garden HERE! Who doesn’t love looking through those beautiful magazines for inspiration…I know I do!

Our Progress from Prior Weeks

Just to bring you up to speed in case you are joining for the first time. We are building a wine cellar in the basement of our home. Being in the basement, creates an optimal space to store wine since it is cooler than the rest of the house, the cellar doesn’t have windows and the walls are covered in stone. Check out the prior week’s progress here.

We Decided on a Company to Build and Design our Wine Cellar

After working with 3 different wine cellar companies, we decided to choose Wine Cellar Innovations HERE to design and build our wine cellar. Wine Cellar innovations offered the best pricing and value for our project….and included free delivery.

Delivery of Our Wine Racks

And what an interesting delivery it turned out to be. Deliveries at our house are usually interesting, the bigger the delivery the more interesting it is. We live on top of a hill with a long curvy driveway, not one that freight trucks have an easy time to navigate.

The time we had a washer and dryer delivered to our home when we first moved in, the truck parked at the bottom of the driveway and the delivery guy pushed the washer and dryer up the driveway by hand. Another time, when we had gym equipment delivered, they unloaded 4,000 pounds of equipment and left it at the bottom of the driveway! I was so mad! Good old curbside delivery.

But not Wine Cellar Innovations and FedEx! Our delivery guy was AMAZING!!!

Uhhhh….one question though….how is that enormous pallet getting on the lift, the pallet is longer than the ramp.

He was so nice, we called out the kids to help us carry all the boxes inside the garage.

But now to get them inside the house and assembled…that’s a job for another day:)


We have to help our awesome FedEx delivery guy navigate his way down our driveway… backwards!

Wine Rack Assembly

  1. What a great UPS guy–kudos to him. Do you have to return the nail gun or is it yours to keep? Just curious! Also, I can’t wait to see next weeks post. I’m sure everything will turn out nicely. It’s my dream to have a wine cellar in a future home one day.

    1. Hi Toya, the nail gun is ours to keep and yes the FedEx guy was awesome! You can also use a closet to build a small wine cellar..we did it in one of our prior homes…very easy to do. Your hubby could easily do it in a weekend 🙂
