Can I make my own refrigerator?

    It depends on where you live. A friend of mine built a small room off of her kitchen to be used as a pantry. The walls are lined with shelves and has a window that is always open. Because she lives in Boston, that room remains as cold or colder than a refrigerator for about 3/4 of the year. It stays cold because it is in the shade and the open window lets the cold air in. I imagine you could do something similar in a basement or something (root cellar). Being underground, the earth would act as a natural insulation, and heat rises, so you wouldn’t have to worry about heating from the house making the basement room hot.
