The wine cellar drawers are extremely well insulated and even have a thermometer installed to monitor the temperature during warmer months.

The talented man shared several snaps of his handiwork on Facebook.



Alongside the pictures, he said: “Ok, here’s one for the wine lovers.

“What to do with dead space under the stairs? Create an easy access wine cellar. Proud of this one.”

His post has racked up thousands of comments from wine lovers who are stunned and a little jealous at his DIY build.

One raved: “Impressive work you are obviously a very skilled tradesman. More than one headache in there.”

Another added: “That’s amazing, beautiful craftsmanship Murray.”

A third joked: “The only complaint is that there [aren’t] enough stairs.”

The 58-year-old revealed he had never made a wine cellar before.

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 of wide width and are very strong – we spent around $500 (£250) at Bunnings just on the heavy-duty drawer slides alone.



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