Hey John B,
I read your post and was quite impressed. I did a little math and figure I'm right at about 100 cubic feet with this closet. I do have a couple of questions for you though.
One, my floor is concrete. From what I read about the wine cellar coolers was that the floor should be insulated as it adds to moisture in the air. Did you add insulation to the floor or just a vapor barrier then plywood? Adding a sub-floor, insulation and then plywood will limit the amount of space greatly.
Two, my walls are already drywalled in the closet and adding 6 inches of insulation on either side of the closet and the ceiling will really make it very small and almost unusable. Could I just use a foam type of insulation instead that was thinner?
I'm thinking of adding a vapor barrier, then foam insulation, then another vapor barrier on top. Maybe, put a vapor barrier and plywood on the floor. I'll run a electric outlet to the back of the closet (it is wedge shaped as it is under a stair case and mount a small AC unit in the back that vents underneath the house.
Does this sound like a feasible idea?
