Give a man a beer, and he wastes an hour, but teach a man how to brew, and he builds a brewpub. GO LIONS

Breathtaking! I have seriously considered doing something like this myself, but you raised the "bar" pretty high. Nothing I do will seem good enough now.

First off I have to say you have done a fantastic job everything looks amazing. I am sorry if you have already answered this question I scanned through the tread quickly and didnt find it. Do you know how much energy you are using on the dorm freezer? Also do you thing you run a risk of killing it prematurely trying to cool that large of an area? Have you installed any fans to circulate the air to reach a more consistent temperature through out the chamber? Have you checked the temp close to the fridge and then on the opposite side? I was thinking this could be great to keep different beers at different temps. I understand if all of the seals are good the chamber should equalize and all be the same temp. Just wondering if you have seen any difference. Thanks!

As for SWMBO, she's all for it. She can't wait until it's done and we can start having parties down there! To her, building this house was about the 1st and 2nd floor and the lot with a water view. To me it was all about the basement.
awesome project


sounds like my wife. She doesn't care what I do in the garage (detached), she never ventures in there. As long as I don't drain the bank doing it, she is ok with it.

Once I renovate the 2nd floor, I have a feeling she will be more understanding when I start fixing up the garage.

I don't know how much electricity I'm using for the freezer, but we haven't noticed a bump in out utility bill, so it appears to be nominal.

I do not have any fans in the cooling chamber. I had expected that I would need to install some, but once I set the Ranco and saw the results, that was good enough for me. I over insulated the cooling chamber, then wrapped it in frp and caulked the heck out of every joint. I have no cooling loss that I can speak of, and the temp in front of the varies by *at most* 2F from right in front of the freezer to the other side of the chamber farthest away from the freezer.

I believe that the key to a project like this is proper insulation. Once you have done that, you are able too eliminate many other factors.
