I'd like to build my own fridge and freezer but am unsure how to cool the box and would welcome any advice. I would prefer not to spend a boat buck or two just on the cooling.
We've got two Edgestar 83qt chest style units, one as a fridge and one as a freezer. They're a PITA because of the chest style and a terrible use of the space. See the photo. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bw...W5pbl9GY3ZEam8
I'd like to build something that makes better use of the space, goes up to the window sill, and has front opening doors (maybe top as well). I'm comfortable with building the box but would appreciate advice as to the cooling. Ideally it will be 12v but 110v running off a 3000w inverter is also possible. Power consumption isn't a huge issue because of the generator and solar.
What are your thoughts on how to cool a custom fridge and freezer? Has anyone built their own from scratch? Thanks!
