I might use that to plan my in the wall tap system I've been dreaming of. That looks wide enough for you to have to cut through a stud in the wall? I was thinking about fitting one between the studs, but that looks good.

Great looking system! I have the same freezer. Did you attempt to even look at adjusting the internal thermostat like some others have done?

Thanks guys. This does span two stud bays, so I did have to put in a header when I cut the stud away. I didn't mess with the internal thermostat because I like the ease of the controller. Before summer rolls around, I will insulate the pvc pipes. The tiny fan I got moves a lot of air (31cfm) and does a great job at keeping the faucets cold. I originally had it mounted in the same box as the taps but the noise was too loud in the kitchen so I moved it into the keezer.
I really need to get a drip tray on this thing. I was thinking about getting the Bar Products drip tray and cutting it down to fit (my space is 18" and the Bar Products tray is 19.5"). Anyone have experience with that tray?

Not to be a party pooper, but you might want to have it inspected. A lot of places have fire codes that prevent compromising the fire barrier between an attached garage and the house.

Otherwise it looks amazing. Congrats.

I just got this tray in the mail, great tray overall and no complaints. I don't see why you would pay more for anything else.

Although this may or may not be up to fire code (state dependent), if I were to arrive on scene of a working fire...I can promise you I will do everything I can to prevent that fire from touching your beer. Might create too much foam/warm beer and we dont want that
