The system works awesome! I know some do not need both heating and cooling, but in my climate I need both regularly, and now I don't have to change anything. Just press the set points and the system automatically heats or cools to maintain the desired temp.

I really like it already. Lagers, HERE I COME!!!!

Total build cost ~$200 if you had nothing. The controller and probe are $85 shipped, $15 in wires and terminals. $100 to get a fridge and some paint... Something around there anyway. I only cost me $85 out of pocket because I had the other stuff...

I would say it is a full weekend project. A couple hours to take out the shelves etc., an hour to take out the divider and clean up the insulation. Then maybe a couple hours to wire up the controller and wire in the heater. A couple hours to build the shelf and install it.

..... maybe 8 hours total. Some would be faster, I was kind of lazy about it because it is a fun project.
