Brick Wine Cellar: Should it be above or below ground? We would wholeheartedly recommend the below ground option. Digging a big hole under your living room or in the garden outside is a major construction job. This is not to be lightly undertaken, as it involves all kinds of other implications, such as staying somewhere else for up to a year. If you have a swimming pool and have given up swimming, or do not have children who would enjoy it, or you do not like to get wet unnecessarily, conversion of the pool becomes a simple option. The advantage of below ground cellars is that the additional insulation provided by the earth around the four sides and under the floor significantly reduces the energy cost of keeping the cellar cool by approximately 25 per cent which over the years adds up to a considerable saving as well as being more environmentally friendly.
Wall, Ceiling & Floor Coverings: What type of finishing materials should be used? There are certain ones not to use, but what it really comes down to is a matter of taste and budget. The cellar usually has a decor theme that is carried throughout the interior. The walls and ceilings are often covered with drywall and then plastered or painted (when painting only use a latex covering). If drywall is used we recommend that a waterproof drywall be used for added protection. Cedar, Redwood and other wood coverings can be applied to the walls and ceiling, usually in a tongue and grove application. This can provide a uniform look to the cellar especially when the racking material is the same wood as the wall and ceiling coverings. Stone, granite or even ceramic tiles can be used as wall covering material.
