Easy Cellar is a book by Tom Griffith. The book’s focus is a do-it-yourself guide to building and maintaining a root cellar that will persist even if your region is the target of a nuclear strike.

This book, often known as the easy cellar program, offers all the knowledge needed to build a root cellar. The author walks you through the entire ranging process, from the theory to the more practical realities like selecting the best site. It then discusses making the ground, preparing it, building the walls, completing the walls, installing an airflow system, and so on.

Information Included in the Easy Cellar Program:

The book begins with the selection of a spot and then moves on to land, security, and invisibility. It all starts here since your site will have an impact on every other choice you make.

Griffith then goes into great depth about how to plan the shelter, including the general size, structure, and components you’ll need and want. Large chunks are also devoted to stocking up on supplies and actually living in the shelter.

Easy Cellar Pros and Cons:

Here are some things we liked about the easy cellarbook and some things we didn’t.


  • Instant access after payment
  • Step-by-step instructions are written in plain English
  • Videos that clarified things that were unclear
  • A commitment to a cost-effective strategy
  • Money-back guarantee for 60 days
  • Direct contact with Tom Griffith, the author


  • There is currently no hardback available
  • There should be a section dedicated to regional variation

Final Verdict:

Because our team actually followed the guide and built the shelter, we can state so with certainty. One of our team members even spent the weekend at the shelter, and the property owner has been using the cellar to keep the canned foods she creates regularly.

It’s crucial to note that none of us are extremely accomplished. The component of the easy cellar curriculum that most impressed us was Griffith’s ability to instruct us in clear terms.
