Default Dimensions for Kegerator

Hi all-

Am in the beginning stages of looking of getting into kegging and am trying to decide what type of fridge to get. Preferably I'd like to go with a smaller fridge that could potentially hold 3 cornys. What kind of dimensions should I be looking at for that type of setup? Also, I'm having a bit of trouble finding a good kind of "beginners how-to" on getting started with kegging. Any threads or sites you all could point to? Thanks very much!!

stickies at top of this forum: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/stic...ng-faqs-43347/

you need to decide: regular fridge, dorm fridge, or chest freezer with temp controller

that has a huge bearing on how many kegs and what your options are for upgrading (perlick taps through a collar/fridge door, etc)

If I am using a dorm fridge, what happens to the ice maker on top?? It seems that all of those types of fridges have the ice maker where the taps would eventually go through??
