Default Show me your DIY Fermentation Chamber!

So after using a chest freezer for a while, I'm thinking of actually building my own to better space efficiency and control. My chest freezer has a huge footprint but crappy space usage inside. I also want to have the beer up above ground lever so I can use gravity to transfer it. I might try to use the freezer guts for the built, or use the guts of a small dorm fridge I have... I would love to see what you guys have built so I can use it as inspiration. Thanks ya'll!

Mine's in my signature....
It's currently hooked up with a space heater inside and the a/c unit unplugged.

Mine is still a work in progress, but you can get the general idea.

Nice setups guys... I'm going to see if I can take apart my current chest freezer and build around that... I would like to get better use of the volume. Thanks.

I'm about ready to start building one of these. I would like to use an LED as an indicator for when the fan is turned on, but don't know anything about how to wire one. Do you simply put the LED in line on the positive wire (much like a switch)? Will any LED work or does it have to have a particular "impedence" (or something equally esoteric)?
