So I am thinking about building a fermentation chamber out of a fridge. I have a questions.

What do I need and how can I use it for both cooling and heating? It will be in an uninsulated garage that can easily range from mid 40's in winter to mid 90's in summer. Would a refer work best?

Refer would probably be fine. Use a dual stage temp controller. For cooling, power the fridge, for heating, power a heat source in the fridge. Say a light bulb or a space heater.
How I brew: Stir plate starters, Extract, Full boil in a Keggle, 10 gallon batches.
Brewing upgrades in progress: temp controlled ferment, stir plate re-work, building mash tun, milling station

Planned House Ales: an Amber, an IPA, a dark IPA, a Mango Ale, a blueberry oatmeal stout, a dry Irish stout, a honey wheat, Apfelwien

What kind of R-Value does your ferm chamber need? - http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/what...hamber-190459/
