Building an Underground Root Cellar with Burnt Timbers | Shou Sugi Ban, Yakisugi

With an abundance of dying trees on my properties, building an underground root cellar with charred timbers makes more sense than using concrete and rocks. Burning the wood makes it more resistant to decay from moisture and insects. My vegetable garden is overflowing with food and I need a place to store it immediately and longterm, along with fish and game from the surrounding Canadian wilderness.
