So we have finally started our cooler build, and as you can see, we are just half a floor, 4 walls, a ceiling, and a door away from having it completed! It may not look like much now, but beauty is in the eye of the beer holder. Its going to be a modest cooler coming in at about 7×9…but will fit our needs as we are starting out. We decided to build one to save $$$$. Our cooler will be a quarter the cost of a new or even used unit. Right now saving money is important to us, so the decision to build was a no-brainer.
The cooling power will be delivered by a 12,000-BTU air conditioner. Normally an ac unit would shut off long before it would get us down to our desired 35 degrees. The trick is with a little unit called a coolbot. Basically we plug the ac into the coolbot and it takes care of everything. I cant wait to try this out!
As soon as we make more progress on it Ill be sure to post some more pictures.
