thank you didnt get much done today but here are a few pics:

this will be where the fridge coil is attached so i have 3 layers of foam board in the studs will have two more inside and will fill the gap with the aluminum covered insulation to help keep the heat out:


and this will be the interior ceiling:


i have some more foamboard preped for the interior wall but wont fit it until i get the top on and level all of the of the studs.

thanks for all the encouragement so far, for my first major project i am pretty pleased thus far.

I would appreciate those measurements. I'd like to break out the tape measure and see if it would fit in the dining room.

gromitdj: here is a pic with the lay out of the length and the angles i hope it's clear enough my microsoft paint skills are not the best. The height of the beams are 26in and i put a piece of thin MDF board between the top(which is a mirror of the the base) and the beams. let me know if i need to clarify b/c i know this is a piss poor explanation:



Nois: thank you sir... although i have to admit that i broke the spray tube and made a right mess of my hands that i done think will be coming off anytime soon. that stuff sets up fast(especially on skin) and i think i got lucky. And on a side note i may have a free fridge coming my way and if i do i believe i will be using your thread for reference for my next build.

Sweet! that thing looks good so far. I love builds like this. If you get a chance, take a pic with a bucket or carboy in there so we can get a feel for how large it is!

have the one on the first page with just the frame but as soon as i get the rest of the foam board up(which should be tonight) i will get a pic of it loaded up for reference. i believe it will hold two buckets/carboys snugly. i wanted it to be pretty small as the fridge i am using is not very large so i am going kinda nuts on the foam and caulk. hopefully it ends up air tight.

So, about like this then.


Are you sure that you are going to get a carboy in there? Maybe the sketchup model I have is a little tall, but it looks like it might be close. It looks like the bucket will fit, so imagine a carboy would too. I guess I'll measure the height of my carboy when I get home.

if my memory is correct( both my carboys are at my friends full of soon to be goodness!) the height of the carboy with airlock was around 18.5" and the door way is 26". your mock mock up is AMAZING(!) but the total height of the cab is 33 and 3/4" the length of the studs are 26+the 3&1/2 of each of the frame + the MDF that is between the frame and the studs.

sorry my description was so bad earlier but on a side note that mock up again is AMAZING!
