RootCellar® Concepts has been featured Boston Design Guide, BDG Prelude, North Shore Magazine, and This Old House.
Our process typically begins with the homeowner. Discussion includes lifestyle, anticipated use, refrigeration requirements, design elements and desired features which help select the amount of cooler and freezer space needed.
Early planning with your architect is essential to ensure an efficiently placed and adequately sized RootCellar®. Kitchen Designers also drive the vision for the textures, colors and finishes that are responsible for the most beautiful kitchens.
Contractors are integral to the delivery process of every RootCellar®. We rely on them to build our walls, electrify our systems and other work necessary in the preparation of the space as well as dictate the schedule.
This is our most frequently asked question and the most difficult to answer. All units are designed to fit the shape and size of the space allotted in your home. There are no set sizes but there are minimum requirements necessary for certain design elements such as the automatic door or freezer bay. For generic reference, we can work within a footprint of 7’ x 8’ however, 8’ x 10’ is a more comfortable and common minimum for a cooler/freezer combination. There is no limit on the maximum size. Please contact us as early as possible in your planning process.
We are often asked this question and the answer is yes it can. Some clients will utilize additional under-the-counter appliances for certain items but most welcome the opportunity to consolidate all of their refrigerated items in one location.
Before RootCellar, multiple appliances were the only option. Even with larger expensive column options for their kitchens or pantries, many homeowners had satellite units elsewhere in their garage or basement. The cost of multiple units would exceed the cost of a RootCellar and the collective storage would be considerably less. We also believe that consolidating your storage improves utilization, reduces waste and proves substantially more convenient.
