People have often asked me why I chose Cellar Designs for the name of my business. Some thought it was due to fun nights hanging out with family or friends and a bottle of wine. Some thought it was because I would cut the hair of my family in our basement. Although those all could be reasons.....
I never have really shared the real reason....until now.
Storm cellars are a "must have" for a rural farm or home that does not have a basement. It is necessary for protection, shelter, and security. A storm cellar that works well is angled so debris of a storm would blow up and off of it, not blocking it so it couldn't be opened back up. They are usually a bit away from the main house, yet close enough so it could be reached quickly if needed.
So, Cellar Designs was born of my gratitude to God for taking some of those big gusts of wind for me, allowing the debris to blow off the angled door, and helping me to know when the coast was clear for me to emerge from the cellar.
