The Humble Beginnings: An empty space underneath the front porch steps, just off the garage.
The Dream: A spectacular wine cellar to showcase a unique collection of vintages.
Finding a place to fit a 1,200-bottle wine cellar was a challenge, but we made use of an empty section of the home underneath the front-porch stairs, just off the garage. This area was previously used for storage, but it made the perfect place to tuck a wine cellar. Because of the irregular shape of the exterior wall, we wrapped the wine cellar into this area, taking what was dead space off the garage and turning it into a showpiece.
