If I had to build my keezer again I'd add a rolling base on casters. I did this recently and it makes moving it around much easier!

I have a plan to do a bigger and better kegerator someday, but that someday will be when I have a bigger and better house. The vision is to build a cold box seamlessly into the counter space and have access from both front and top. Front to make loading and unloading easy, top to make running the lines easy as I imagine one day I will get old and lifting kegs from the top will be hard on the back and reaching into the back of a front loader to straighten out the lines will be hard on the body as well.

If I had it to do over, I'd use an upright freezer. It kills my back to lift kegs in and out of my chest freezer. And it's a PITA to clean.
