Got another project that I've been working on for a little while buttoned up today. Took a chest freezer and turned it into a keezer that will hold 2 corny kegs of home brew. Here is the freezer that we started out with.

First step was remove the lid and build a 2x4 wood frame to put on top. This will allow for CO2 hose, temp control, and taps to enter and exit without drilling through the freezer.

The 2x4 frame was siliconed down to the top and then a bead was ran around the whole inside corner. Then wrapped the frame with some foil backed bubble insulation.

Final step before reinstalling the lid was to wrap the top of the frame with some sheet metal so the magnet on the door will have a true seal.

Now all that's left is to keg the beer that's sitting in the fermenter. 👍🤘👍🤘🍻🍻🍻

My wife grew up in a house with a storm door between the house and garage, so she wanted that here. I like that it has the screen built in and we can use it to get air flow through the house by cracking the outside door on a good west wind. Makes the garage feel a touch bigger and it makes it easier to keep tabs on the girls if they're playing outside while we are inside.

Good idea. Just a heads up. Steel entry doors are required for garages due to their ability to act as a fire brake. Garage fires happen and spread quickly due to accelerents being stored there.

Another option is a screen door on a roller. Pulls out and a magnetic strip holds it when extended. It’s nice that it is out of the way at all times except for when you want the door to the garage open. Out of the way for bringing groceries in, etc.

Do y’all have screens on the big doors also?

I was thinking about going the other direction and adding ducts to my garage. Keep it closed up and temperature controlled after the barns done.
