without the cooling unit isn't it just a metal closet?

A well insulated metal closet perhaps?
Quick way to build a room. Cool it with an AC unit, maybe?

The ad itself says $1000. Pesky CL ads misrepresenting themselves to sucker us in...

He probably listed it at $1k a few times and just auto-renewed the ad and only changed the price in the price box.

Exactly. If I had the space I'd be considering it. If you look at walk-in cooler builds on this forum they can go above $1000 dollars pretty quickly. If you find a cheap a/c and temp controller, I bet you could easily keep it below $1000. Avoiding to have to construct a properly sealing door on a homemade walk-in would be the best benefit for me. Don't think this thing has a floor, so that may be a concern

Several years ago a friend of mine did a remodel on a gas station/convience store and he got one for free w/o the cooling unit. We were going to put it togeather and install an A/C unit but we never got around to it.
