Default Simple Fermentation Chamber

hey guys, just finished my fermentation chamber. Basically wanted to show how you can get away with using a $40 thermostat, already set up with a 120V outlet on it, from OSH. I apologize for the crappy pics.

All i used for cooling is a small 2.7 cu. ft dorm fridge (freebie), two 120V fans to constantly circulate (had laying around), a LUX thermostat($40 @ OSH), sheet of plywood and 2x4's($30) and styrofoam insulation ($12). Holdin steady at 64 for the last two weeks.

a friend of mine does sheet metal work, and built this inch and a half thick, fully insulated door.
