Really liked Hoppopotomus thread on his cedar keezer build so most of the work was based on his thread which was extremely helpful. Immitation is the best form of flattery right? lol.
We have a lot of cedar inside and outside so this truly was a perfect fit.
We still are not done yet, but here is our build so far on our 8.8 cu ft Kenmore chest freezer:
About the only place we have room for it and much better spot for a keezer than bookshelf and curio cabinet right?
Heres the freezer and yep it fits 4 kegs easily thanks to the cardboard cutouts.
Framing and putting on casters
Finished stain and poly along with cedar planks and cedar logs and putting on plywood (told u it was very similar to Hoppo's lol)
Building the coffin and inserting fans and pvc tube for beer lines [IMG]
drum roll....our "unique tile" and love controller installed:
stone mortared and hopefully grouting today:
wiring completed for love controller:
We have taken a lot more photos than what we've posted in this thread. If you are interested in seeing all the photos we've taken thus far, here's the entire album on photobucket: linky.
We purchased a couple storm door closers that we're hoping to attach to the freezer, or frame somehow: linky. Do you think this will help support the keezer when we open it? Also, not really sure how to attach. Are there coils inside the freezer towards the top, near the lid? Could we attach to the freezer, or do you think we should attach somehow to the frame? Any advice?
The stone looks fantastic! Your almost there.....keep up the great work! So, what are you doing for the final horizontal trim? I'm getting ready to make a few modifications to mine......I need to get the CO2 outside of the keezer. I have been have a small issue with pressure creeping with my regulators, which the good folks a kegconnection.com said was due to moisture forming in the regulators with them being housed inside of the keezer. I had a patient who was gracious enough to give me a 20 lb. CO2 cylinder, so I'm going to house it, along with the regulators, in my pantry adjacent to the keezer and just run long gas lines through the adjacent wall, behind the fridge and somehow up to the coffin and down into the keezer. It will be great to have readily accessible regulators on a big a$$ CO2 cylinder without having to pull this tank out to open it everytime I want to make an adjustment. I am also considering a linear actuator (Jester369's idea....not mine) to open the top which is ridiculously heavy. Keep up the good work and I'm glad my build has helped you out!
