> Cold Basement Room by homebild on 01/04/2010

I have a cold room in the basement of my 15 year old house.
It sits directly underneath the porch. The porch is concrete with natural stone over it.
The cold room is covered entirely with dry wall, and therefore, I cannot tell whether it is insulated or not. There are no cold air vents installed.
In the past two year I have started experiencing condensation problems in the cold room.
The water penetrates the dry wall in multiple spots. The drywall feels wet and saturated with moisture. In the cold weather it freezes up and gets covered with snow.
The cold room has a regular wood door, which leads to the rest of the finished basement.
How do I deal with this problem?
