I have 2 things to say to you! Well done sir and post more pictures please. Pics that show the inside set up, particularly how you have the hoses going through the wall.
If you don't start drinkin' I'm gonna leave

LOl the holes are blocked off by some painted sheet aluminum. When you look at it, it just seems to be a weird place to have a bird house, when we have a party folks are shocked when they see it.

To go through the wall I just drilled holes and I'm using 5in shanks. The lines are a little long to the fridge but I'm in Humboldt county so heat is not a problem. The fridge setup is nothing fancy but I can post pics if you like.

OK, this one: is goddamn AWESOME!!!!

The Kovert Keezer!!! That is just brilliant.... It's the Harry Potter of keezers, forced to live under the steps and is like effin' MAGIC when it comes out!!!

The taps/glass area is so damn cool. Your cabinetry friend is a true professional... That is just an incredible design and so well thought out!

Cheers, man!

It has 6 casters, I guess that's the only one pointed out in the pic

My kegerator sits under the stairs on my deck and is exposed to the weather causing me to have to shut it down for the winter and bottle. I needed to enclose it against the elements and still be able to use it.
A friend of mine is a great wood worker/carpenter and he hooked me up.
First he enclosed the space with plywood and heavy plastic. Then he faced it with 200 year-old barn oak and made drink rails on each side. Also, he made a pair of swinging doors leading to the back bar area.
Here are some before shots.

Here's the front of the kegerator.

That black box on the right is my kegerator under the stairs.

And now.

From the front of the bar.

And here's the other side with the swinging doors.

Here's a detail of a drink rail made of the barn oak.

The front is a three-part door. The bottom piece has a wide top that doubles as a drip tray.

The middle part comes off to store away except for the coldest days, and the top part is on hinges to swing up to access the kegerator.
The next project is to put an oak veneer on the face of the kegerator to complete the look.

Here's another view from the side.
