Default DIY refrigerator

Has anyone tried building their own fridge? Say about 7'x7' and 3'deep, with hinged doors of course. Enough to hold about 12 corny kegs on the floor. And if so, how do you chill it to around 40deg?

I have heard of someone taking a shed and insulating that with reflective foam then cooling with A/C for bigger storage. Might be able to go the same route be use a cheap used mini fridge and a temp controller.

Might as well just use the cooling elements from the freezers mounted to the roof of your "room".
