Wine Cellar: Done with a capital "D"

Thank goodness! It's such a good feeling when you can claim an area of your house officially d-o-n-e. That's how we're feeling today as we finished up our "under the stairs" wine cellar. All the bottles have been cataloged in a cellar management software and we've finally moved all of the leftover construction junk out.

(Okay, maybe that's not the entire truth...we did notice a few little items that we'd like to alter, such as removing the ceiling light and fixing some left over "construction paint spillage" on the stairs. But at this point, we're ready to claim victory.)

Mr. Big's going to kill me for posting this picture, but I can't help showing how happy he is. There is no doubt that this is one of his favorite places in the whole house. So if anyone is wondering what he looks like on a loungy "housework day", here you go. Sorry babe...

We used Cellar Tracker's online management system, which will help us to make sure that we're pulling out bottles before they go bad. This will definitely prove useful as I'm a complete novice in this area. It's also interesting to see other people's comments on the wine that you like.

Wow, this is so great! I am dying of jealousy over here. I'd say this is reason enough to open up one of those bottles. And one of the really good ones, too. :)
