While in quarantine, many have turned to completing home projects that have been on the back burner for a while — while others have started new projects, like the guy below!

Murray Berrill owns a building company ( Murray Berrill Constructions) in Australia and he doesn’t like to just sit around and waste time while in quarantine. So he decided to combine his building skills, with he and his wife’s love of wine.

As a designer and builder, Murray hates to see wasted space in a home and his home is no exception.

When Murray noticed the vast amount of unused space behind his stairwell, he decided to get creative by installing his very own unique wine cellar.

Rather than building a separate cellar, Murray decided to incorporate the stairwell with individual drawers.

Speaking to The Daily Mail, he said, “I hate dead space when renovating a house, as you’re essentially paying for nothing. So we thought of putting the wine in drawers in the staircase rather than behind it.”

“The drawers are wide width and are very strong – we spent around $500 AUD ($319) at Bunnings just on the drawers alone,” he explained.

“We had to work out how all the bottles were going to fit and make sure the entire design was strong enough.”

But the final result was INCREDIBLE!

The makeshift cellar is well insulated and has a thermometer installed to keep track of temperature, so Murray can make sure the wine doesn’t cook in the summer months.

Murray overall spent an estimated $5,000 AUD ($3,191) on his clever creation!

Not too bad to store 156 bottles of vino!
