Refrigerator root cellar chimney vent

 refrigerator root cellar chimney installation

Two drill holes and a few minutes with the jig saw was all it took to create the new chimney hole for the refrigerator root cellar.

I also removed the foam and plastic barrier that separates the freezer from the rest of the refrigerator. One of the metal shelves slid right into its place, which will provide plenty of open space for the cool air to flow while at the same time working as a sturdy surface to store apples on.

This post is part of our Fridge Root Cellar series.  Read all of the entries:
