Looks good. Starting to come together pretty good.

Mine too ate and drank caulk and liquid nail! If you put up the white plastic panel it is even more.

I looked today at home depot for that plastic sheeting, and couldn't find it. Think I'll probably skip it in that light...

Lowes? HD has been a real disappointment lately around me.

When I got it, it was by the paneling.

By the wood paneling, or in the area where they have the clear plexi panels? Neither my local Home Depot nor Lowe's has it near the paneling or plywood - but it just occurred to me on my way back to work from Lowe's that maybe it would've been near the plexiglass...

I know it was by trim. The stuff you cut to length. They have little carts with the yellow mitre saw box. (HD). I believe that it was by the Plexiglas.

More progress to report:

This thing is really starting to come together and look like something!


I used great stuff to fill some of the gaps around the the extra layer of bottom insulation, caulked the hell out of everything, then started installing the foil-backed insulation. So far I have the top, bottom, and back of said insulation installed. I also then finished enclosing the end.

A quick shot inside the fridge end:


Again, caulking the hell out of every joint I can, and I plan to install reflectix foil tape over those joints for a littel additional protection from the elements.

And the other end:


As you can see, I've still got to install two more sections of the foil-backed insulation inside, but I just kinda ran out of steam tonight. Figure I'll get them in tomorrow, caulk things up some more, then Saturday once the caulk is cured I'll apply foil tape, and get working on the door.

I'll probably head over to home depot one more time to look for that plastic sheet... If I find it and it's not too expensive, I'll pick it up and work that into the design too - though I'm not quite sure if I'll be able to get such a thing into there through the door (the longer pieces of insulation for the top/bottom/back only made it in through the open end, which is now decidedly closed up... Maybe if I put it in by sections - but then I'll be stuck with a lot more joints.

FYI- the paneling is around $10 if I remember right. It comes in 4'x8' sections. You will also need silicon for the joints and adhesive.

Looks awesome. Where are you mounting the love controller?
