I started trading at the CME in 1990 and continue to trade off of the floor where I opened my own firm in 93 in Chicago and then in NYC. I sold my firm in 2000 and became very active in Joseph and Curtis Custom Wine Cellars. We are a very hands on company which pays strict attention to our clients wants and needs, and take great pleasure in making their dreams come true.
I cannot begin to count how many times I have been asked to build a wine cellar for a client that either had little or no vapor barrier or it was done wrong. Most of the time the client,builder, or GC had no idea what a vapor barrier is. I will try to explain the importance of proper insulation,vapor barrier, and of course humidity.
