What is cold room for?
 
I have a basement cold room.... wondering what is it for... storing wine? ... anyhow... I don't like cold... can I frame it and insulated it to make it not cold... what about the two vents? can I cover them up to block cold air.... or install windows on them... I am interested in turning it into a workshop place if this is allowed by the code...

I believe it used for storing beers. Mostly by home brewers and those who keep whole kegs on hand. Or just anything else that you need to regulate to a colder temperature and want to save energy cooling...

If it is used to store beer, will it be too cold causing things to fozen in the winter...

Depends on what it was designed for, maybe produce, maybe beer, I THINK some people even use them for animal meat. To my knowledge, the temp could be "tuned" to various temps for various things.

Sounds like a 'root cellar'...
