Topher, I couldn't agree more. He was very eager to talk though which is encouraging...

As far as the "slimline" kegerators are concerned, I'm liking this alot. And the "concealed" tap (I love it!!! I've always liked building stuff with hidden storage...makes me feel like a pirate!!!) what about a tap concealed in a top drawer or pull out that you put your glass under after you pull the drawer out! HA!

Any more feedback or interest in something like this?

Lots of varied and good ideas for cabinets! Maybe 2 or 3 configurations for the keg / serving part and a modular refrigeration unit as a side module that could be used with any of them. Maybe decor options could be thin, slide-in panels to change the look like some of the built-in refrigeration seen these days in higher priced homes.

Makes me thirsty just thinkin' about it!

Well this thing might be cost prohibitive, if built by us at least. Preliminary specs show it costing $3.5k or more and that isn't furniture grade. My company isnt capable of that level of woodwork, so I was also fooling around with what we call a "drop in". basically a kit that has all necessary components to be installed in a preexisting cabinet or just one built by someone else....

Granted, this is top of the line mechanical build quality. Foodservice(NSF) grade 1/3hp compressor. All copper refrig. lines. All stainless steel construction. Hell the thing would even be UL listed.
