Check out Coolbot. Whether you buy their controller or not, there is a lot of good information on that site about building a walk-in cooler.

From what I remember, the basics are:
4" of Foam insulation. Eventually fiberglass will get wet, even with a vapor barrier.
Buy an exterior door because well insulated doors are very hard to make.
No cracks. Not even tiny ones. You can fill in gaps with spray foam.

Food for thought.... Cheers!!!

5250 BTU AC with a RANCO Controller. Fan on top to blow warm air out of the room.

If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!
