Creating a Root Cellar Indoors

I grew up with a root cellar. My current home is in an old house that has no basement, I can't get into the attic (I am physically unable to use ladders), and no garage. Although there areas of the house that don't have heat sources they can not be isolated so as to assure the proper low temperatures. The best possibility is pantry, but it also serves as my laundry. I have lived here for 10 years and still can't find a workable solution.

You stated you wanted this to be indoors; how about one just on the outside of your home? Is this a possibility at all?

Check; they have a ton of resources available, re: all kinds of things like this with lots of information on do it yourself things including solar ovens, earth stoves, etc. and I am sure many have found a solution to this very problem! Good luck!

I converted my closet at the entrance of my place. It is by the front door, as it is hardly used and instead of collecting junk, it now serves as a root cellar for me.
