Curious if anyone has ever built a walkin cooler for storing Meat/animals etc.  I have seen the kit type at many hunting camps etc but didn't know if there is a better way to make a quality freezer.

Thanks for any ideas.

Number one consideration- Vapor Barrier. Have two. One in and one out.  Build an insulated floor, caulk ALL seams. Achieve at the least an R-30 in walls and ceiling and at least R-24 in floor. Insulation is like beer at a party, the more the merrier.

ETA:spelling and alcohol induced errors correction.

5 inches + of closed cell sprayfoam will work wonders for you,

I prefer to just bury my bodies under my porch, but to each his own I suppose.

Ahhhhh, I kid, I kid.
