new storage area

bmmaloneDecember 19, 2008

we have just 'found' a new storage area. It is behind the crawl space and we now have a 'door opening' which not not regular size (maybe 26 wide, 54 high). I intend to put 6mm plastic on the floor and store plastic totes in the area. What should I not store in this area? It will remain cold/cool all year. Doesn't look as though any water comes into the area, but the floor is dirt. I was thinking that books may be ok. tableware, misc stuff, christmas stuff etc. Comments please

I would not store anything made of paper or fabric there, for sure....

I have an area like that in my basement. It gets damp and bugs. I store my storm windows in it. Never clothing or paper of any kind. (no books)
